No output from generator

Generator starts with no problem and runs fine but is not sending power to the coach. I checked all the breakers and fuses that I can find.

Did you check the breaker on the generator?

Mine is on the lower right side near the start switch.
I have tripped mine while running too many appliances in the MH.
Good Luck.

I did check it and flipped it back and forth and there was no power inside either way.

Find your automatic transfer switch. Remove the cover and check all the connections. Many have found them loose from the factory.

Just make sure no generator or shore power while playing with it!

Could also be a buildup of fine dust on the stator get it blown out with high pressure air

You think dust affects magnetic fields? Any dust on the stator is blown out when the generator runs and the cooling air is blown through it. If the generator is not putting out AC voltage the controller shuts it down with an error code. The OP has a distribution problem, most likely the ATS as others have pointed out.
