I have a 76 -260. when I plug it in to the 'wall' (110) I get nothing. no lights, no air, no power at all. when i try the 12v again, nothing. the batt shows nothing. again, no lights, no nothing. the main (motor) batt was dead. I took it out and charged it and let the 110 pluged in. the batt died. I took it out and charged it again.I unpluged the wall.  it will turn over the motor and the generator. but wonT charge up. any idea what's going on? is this the convertor?  the curcit breakers? they seam to snap in good.   help!!

Check your shore power outlet with a multi meter and make sure that you have a/c power there,then plug in and check at the circuit breaker box.

I know the shore outlet is hot, I pluged in a light. how do I test the circuit breaker box?  thanks for the help!!

EZ test is to put the leads of a multi meter or plug from a light into one of your RV wall outlets.If there is no output when plugged into known good shore ac power then check the ac output inside the breaker box and at each circuit breaker by removing the breaker box cover.

cool! thanks again!!

Does your shore power cord have plugs at BOTH ends?, Ive had a situation where the end that plugs to the RV outlet had wire that came loose, Power going thru the cord but failed to make it the actual plug....  Just an idea.  Good luck.

I'm going to cheak out the cord in the morning. thanks for the heads up!

I want to thank everyone. I checked my main cable from the shore hook up to the RV and the contacts on the dog bone where dirty. A little sanding and all is well. thanks again!!
