110 or 220 ? jerry white 8-14-09  
The previous owner of my 1988 Kountry Aire 32' fifth wheel obviously had a problem with a switch used to hook in a generator. The switch was by-passed and 220vac was wired directly into the circuit breaker panel. How does this switch work and what is the proper what to wire in a new plug ?

IF IT IS DONE PROPERLY!! This is correct. Check the 110 volt outlet in the wall for voltage to see if it wired correct. I can't give you wire colours and conection locations as I do not know your unit and its breaker box. The 220 volt power is delivered on three "legs" from the Pole transformer or genset. If you think of it as two 110 volt supplies that can combine to give you 220 you would be correct. Get a manual from an RV place or one that explains it in house terms and go from there. Be carefull doing this as you can damage expensive electrical stuff in your unit. I do this but really recomend you, the consumer, use an RV tech or electician. Good Luck
