Noob Question about power

Hello,

This is my first MC and was wondering if it was NORMAL for the TV's, fan above kitchenette, some outlets and the microwave to not have power while going down the road or while parked. Everything powers up when I run the generator.

I apologize if this is a stupid question. I just thought it was odd the kids in the coach don't get to watch tv while on the road.

Thanks in advance.

GM

Disregard posted Question

I figured it out. Its designed this way. There may be restrictions, but mostly its okay to run the generator to power the TV, fridge, AC or Microwave while going down the road. Thanks.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. There are no stupid questions, but in the future it would be helpful to anyone attempting to help if you would list what make, model and year your MH is. You can ad this info to your signature so it will always show up. Have a great time in your new coach.
Mike

The only thing that should be restricted is the TV outlets to keep the driver from being distracted. Microwave and and AC require shore power or generator. Fridge will work off inverter.
