All the appliances work when plugged into Shore power, except the generator will not fire... seems like the alternator is not charging the coach battery... I was plugged into Shore power for about 30 minutes and the lights work for a while now or starting to dim

Well, technically you could employ a voltmeter measuring across the fuse terminals but even then you're measuring voltage drop, not system voltage but which would permit calculating current and power delivered. Seems like a convoluted process compared to troubleshooting it this way:

What year and model is your coach?

What model number is on the converter/charger?

Did this problem just develop or has it been a chronic condition?
