no 110 volts at all in RV

hi folks new here to this site and new to my 2012 Hurricane 31J, everything was working fine when I winterized in November, I had a trickle charge on the house batteries (2- Volts batteries) here is my problem, I am plugged into 110 Volt shore power, I here something switch but get no 110 in any of the coaches appliances, only 12 Volt and on the inverter I am getting a red light as a fault. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Al

Time to get out the voltmeter... does require removing electrical covers and exposing potentially live wires - if you aren't comfortable working with electricity - then don't...

Before that - does the generator provide 110 to the coach?
If so - suspects would be shore power supply, power cord, connector to coach, surge suppressor (if present), and transfer switch.

If the generator doesn't provide power either - then start at the transfer switch - that's where the 2 sources come together.

At each point you should be able to measure voltage.. Assuming 50A rig - should read 110 from either hot to neutral, and 220 from hot to hot (if using a 50A to 30A adapter, hot to hot will read 0 volts - that is ok...)

If everything is fine up to the transfer switch - continue to the breaker panel.

Access will be the biggest issue - in my rig, most of that is under the bed.

Greg here is what I have found out so far, yes the breakers have 110v to them and what I found out is that only the 2 airs, the converter and the inverter are on the breakers in the RV all the plugs including the GFI are somehow run through the inverter, I took apart the GFI and there is definitely no power the to it, I can see that a lot of the wire that would normally be hooked into the breakers are wired together and put through the inverter, (apparently the previous owner did a lot of dry camping) do you think that it would be ok if I undo the wire nuts and just rehook them to the breakers, and yes the genny is working fine but only powers the 4 breakers, Thanks Al
