Please post your trailer information, year and model. Also add your electrical systems info (inverter model, batteries, etc.).

When on shore power, does your refrigerator work when AC power is selected? The fridge circuit is direct to a breaker (no GFCI), so if it does maybe your GFCI has failed.

Congratulations on your new to you Ollie. We'll work out how to reset your profile later. Hull number 590 probably means 2019, or so. ELITE 1 or 2? What batteries? 

Does the gfci reset, or no? Have you tried?

Are you on shore power? Have you checked the shore power connection? 

Does anything work on 110? Fridge, ac, etc.

Give us a bit more info, and folks will be happy to help.

If you have the transfer switch (extra power connection), try unplugging from the pedestal, and wait a minute. Plug in again. Our transfer switch doesn't always kick in, right away. When it does, we hear a click inside, and  when we had a microwave,  the microwave beeped. 

Sorry for your troubles. A little more info will help us help you.

If you're on shore power, have the 2 power connectors outside (left side body and right side by the propane tanks), and the transfer switch doesn't click/microwave doesn't beep when you plug in, can your cord reach the other power connector?

More dumb questions!  I'm a novice.  So I have the legacy II, 2020.  I put 4 new interstates in it.  Now that I am back in my barn and plugged in to shore power. everything is working!  A/C, batteries got restored, outlets working gfi ,yes! So I think my portable Generator 30 amp plug was not working? battery drained after 2 days .  here is my questions.  Do the outlets in the RV work on battery power only?  I thought so, and That may have been my first misdirection... Do I have an Invertor?  What is the Black box mounted on the inside compartment under the table?  Looks like an invertor.

Hi Badger,

When using a generator with the Oliver, it is important to have a bonding plug otherwise known as a neutral ground plug on the generator.  The Oliver comes standard with a built in surge protector and if you do not have this plug, the surge protector will not allow the 120v power to work as it is not grounded.  Here is an example of a ground plug that you can buy on Amazon for $19.  https://www.amazon.com/Southwire-Company-LLC-44400-Generator/dp/B07F4R7BDL/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=generator+bonding+plug&qid=1696360581&sr=8-5

Yes, you need a bonding plug to get power from most generators into your trailer. That should solve your initial problem. I don't know if Hull 590 has an inverter. Most Olivers do. Do you have a black control panel labeled Xantrex in your trailer? Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Schneider-Electric-Solar-Inv-808-0817-01/dp/B0756BJQCN/ref=asc_df_B0756BJQCN/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312094677816&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10946446638069115879&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9003252&hvtargid=pla-519123927354&psc=1

If so, you have an inverter. Instructions on its use are in Oliver University, linked from the main Oliver website. Basically, if you have no shore power, pushing the round silver button in activates the inverter and creates 120v power for your outlets, microwave, etc. from your batteries. The green LED next to the battery icon will indicate it's working. Note that this can consume a lot of battery power, especially running the microwave, so use it sparingly. The inverter does consume some power whenever it's on, even if there's nothing plugged into the outlets, so turn it off when not needed.

It would be helpful for others on the forum to learn that have similiar problems that you explained to indicate what was the resolution to you not have 110 v power to the outlets.

@Doug S, all good questions. 

And, understandable quandries. 

When you wrote the original post asking for help, were you on generator without the ground plug?

If you were on campground shore power, let us know. Different scenario. 

The more info you can provide, the more the collective minds can help. 

So glad everything is working now, at home .

When did you install the new batteries? 

And, welcome aboard. Glad to have you here.

Richard, I know this is a little late in the game but I believe Badger's solution was to purchase the bonding plug that Phil mentioned.
