Default 8kw Onan

I fired up my gennie this afternoon and it ran great, but no 240 to the transfer switch. The 120 radiator fan is spinning well, but no juice any further than that. The gennie performed admirably for several months. I seem to remember a circuit breaker on my FC above the gennie. Does my SP have one and where might it be?

Default Good question

I did expose the transfer switch and couldn't find any juice going to it! I should have had 240v on one input of the switch. Nada.

Default Thanks Randy

I have not pulled the breakers apart to test them electrically. They seem solid when I reset them. I will try that in the morning. Thanks.

Default Attaboy Michael!

Exactly right! I must have tripped it while packing up everything in Key West. Working great now! Thank you very much. I hadn't seen that breaker box yet. Still new to this coach. Thanks again to all!

Yes it is. I suspected it was something simple only because I have done stupid things like this before. I love this forum.
