Question Generator won’t charge house side batteries

Stopped to visit a friend while traveling through New Hampshire and they had a twenty amp adapter where we plugged the coach in and set the Mag 2812 remote to 20 amps shore power. The voltage reading was dropping so I started the genny. However when I checked on it it was not charging batteries. I disconnected from power( probably too late) and started the genny again, however it will not charge house side since. Any ideas are very much appreciated.d

Is the Mag 2812 charging the engine starting Batteries ?

Do you have any voltage coming out of the Mag ?

We spoke by phone and did some troubleshooting.
There is no power from the generator. Hopefully we'll know more tomorrow

Ed, There is a 300A fuse in the electrical bay, see pic, that could be bad.
Hopefully one of the electrical gurus will sign in.

I had something similar with my WB. The fuse Paul mentions was good but the fuse block itself was bad.

Hi Guys and Gals by sort of cosmic intervention our generator is working and charging the house batteries once again. Thank you everyone for your input and help. In the process I learned That I have no idea what an 95 BMC 37 Transfer Switch looks
like. I have seen one picture so far and I cant find anything or place in my coach that looks like that. It is possible that my inverter was installed directly in front of it. I would really appreciate some pictures if you have any available. And Thanks again!!!!
