Help! Already on the road...

We are traveling in a Ford Gemini. We boondocked last night. The generator will turn on but is not supplying any power. Are we supposed to flip a switch? If so, where is it located? I have searched the owners manual.

There is a breaker on the generator. Make sure it is on.

Do the Gemini models have a "use/Store" switch? If it does: set it to the "use" position.

My 5500 has 2 obvious breakers. The 4000 I used to have had one that did not stand out at all. I'm not familiar with the LP versions. Sorry

It could be your transfer switch. I have seen where the relay sticks in the transfer switch and doesn't switch on to allow power to the coach.

See if you can find your transfer switch. Make sure the generator is off (and shore power is unplugged). Take the cover off the transfer switch and you will see the relay. Try tapping it a couple times and then try the generator again.

If you can find some electrical contact spray or silicone spray, you can try spraying the relay with it.

Let us know.....

Not sure where it is on the Gemini. On my rig it is in a storage compartment.
Check where your shore power cable goes into coach.
