We have a motorhome and the generator comes on but will not power the motorhome. It is a 1993 Four Winds Motorhome is there a switch we need to turn on or how do we get it to power the motorhome.

Whether this is an example of yours, or not, there is a lot of information here on the operation and repair of a motorhome generator.

Way too many things to go wrong to simply diagnose without a lot of poking and prodding.

Check in the bay where your power cord is. If there is a 30 amp socket mounted in there, plug in your power cord to it and then start the generator. Also check on the generator for two circuit breakers mounted together. Turn them off and back on.

Power cord needs to be plugged in to supply power from gen. And as mentioned above the outlet is usually inside the bay where your cord comes out of. Sometimes it's on the side which is hard to see.

Then yes,plug your shore plug into it and the generator power will go into the motorhome.
