Electrical help in MA

We ran all our electrical for our living space. Plugged it into the generator and flipped the breaker and nothing. We are in MA looking for a local Skoolie community in NH or ME. Any suggestions? We spent so much time, effort and money. Itís been exhausting

There are way too many variables in the way of diagnosing your issue over the internet.
Unless you have pictures of the installation, in detail.

I would start by taking a multimeter to the incoming wiring at the panel/breaker box to check for voltage.
If you have 110-120VAC inside at the panel, your breaker might need replacing?
Hopefully your installation had an overview/check by a licensed electrician?

I'm in NH, but probably too far from B'town to help you.
Good luck, and post pics of your electrical setup if you can...

Electricity is like water.

If you connected your house to the water main, added lines and faucets, then when you turned on the faucet there was no water, what would you do?

As Pete said, start at the beginning and make sure you have water coming in from the main source, your generator in this case.

If yes, follow along the path at each connection and make sure you still get a reading (~120v).

When you stop getting a reading, that's likely where your problem is.

OP, Didn't you buy this bus six or eight weeks ago?

We know how this ends. 'Spilled' electricity does not puddle up, awaiting a mop.

diy the engine, plumb the water, hang sh!t tanks, work wood, seal glass, mend steel. All low risk projects. White fire can melt, burn and vaporize all of them.

Licensed Electricians know stuff.

Was the generator on fire? Or plugged into shore? Battery fire? Something odd.

Is this post related to the bus fire post? Seems oddly coincidental
