Could be a loose wire from the inverter to the receptacles.

You open the panel and check all wire connections? Also seems strange there's no fuse. You sure it's not hiding on you somewhere?

It makes 120v - converts to 12v - then inverts to 120v. Evidently the inverter has failed.

It might be possible to find an inverter on the internet.

We are a warranty/service center for all brands of RV generators, most brands of portables & several brands of standby generators.

If it ends up being a bad board...
Take it to your local Radio Shak...they can usually hook you up with someone that can do a component check on the board..and possibly repair it..

If the inverter is the only issue ,and a new one is too much cash or unavailable ,any reason he cant go to a rv store or harbour freight and just buy an off the shelf 1000 watt inverter and run that externally off the 12 volt generator output ?

OldTimer...Having not worked on the electrical end of too many of the newer generators...
On the older ones from the 70s and 80s...periods of inactivity would cause them not to have any output...
It was common practice to FLASH the field by inserting 2 jumper wires from a 12v battery into the ac outlet while it was running...
It fixed a bunch of them....Is this still possible with the newer generators ???
