If one or more are failing, everything will still work fine when you are on GOOD shore power, because you have have more electrical capacity to start and run things. You generator is limited to its capacity on each leg.

Randy D, thanks for the reply. Sorry to hear about you having a family disaster. Hope your trip to FL is going well and continues to be a safe trip.

Jonathan, I wish I had the skill set you and Randy have. I will look at the ATS, but I do not have any setup to raise the bus and check the cables back to the gen as suggested earlier. Thanks for the 2nd opinion on CW. I will put them at the bottom of my list for repairs.

Randy T, I looked up holland and they are down south near San Diego and I am headed north to San Francisco. However, if that is where I have to take it, then I will.

Tom, you could be right as after hooking up to shore power the front and rear AC's came on without any issue. We then shut them off and started the middle one. It came up fine so we started the front and rear. Everything worked, so we thought it was good.
This morning the front shut down and its breaker tripped. Don't know if the middle one tried to start again or what.

Crit, you may be right as well. I think either the middle or front AC could be bad or going bad.

So, do I just google "RV Repair" and pick just anyone? Lookup Mobile Repair? Head to San Francisco and do it there? Go to San Diego and Holland? How safe are we to travel? What is the possibility of a fire?

If anyone wishes to call my number is: Nine Zero Four 612 three 8 seven 8

Thanks again to everyone!
WOG is GREAT!!
