Batteries may have been done in because the inverter was running your 30 amp side, including the outlet your CPAP was on, rather than your actually having any power at the park post.  If memory serves, our genset starts off the chassis batteries, but on some rigs it's off the house set.  Since the first thing the generator does is charge the house set, it would seem better to have it start off the chassis, since as in your case the house set can be too far dead to start the generator in the first place.

Your words: "The 30 Amp is hot, but the 50 is not."  Keep in mind that that could imply the inverter had taken over, not the power post, and was running its normal 30 amp breaker box components.  Are you sure now that your power is 50 amp and coming from the post, or the generator?   Just starting the engine I'd not expect to fix that, other than to BIRD over to charge the house so the genset would start. 

I still think your park personnel need to check your post.  Otherwise there is the unusual chance it is your transfer switch that's not passing power through.  Did you try plugging into the 30 amp outlet on the power post?

I think the I/O control module is located in the console to the left of the driver.

Update: Sometime in the night, we lost all electrical.  We had one leg before and I was able to use my CPAP.  I got up this morning and tried to start the generator but the batteries were too low.  I started the engine and all electrical power was restored.  (50 AMP Service). I don't know how long that will last, but at least it's working now.

At the RV park's power pedestal, the 50 amp plug has two legs, each with 50 amps, and each leg has its own 50 amp breaker.  Could you have flipped ON only one of the two 50 amp legs' breaker switches?  That would mean only one side of your coach's 50 amp panel would have power.

First guess is a faulty power post, not your coach.  Have the park check the 50 amp outlet.  I’ve ran into similar 50amp post issues myself.  The park either fixed it or called in an electrician.  If sites are available they may simply move you until they can get it repaired.

We had our 2008 Beaver serviced today, (Engine and Generator). We got back to where we are staying and the Air conditioners would not work.  I checked the Breaker Panel's (2) in the Bathroom.  One breaker panel if 50Amp and the other is 30 Amp.  The 30 Amp is hot, but the 50 is not.  When I run the generator, the 50 Amp is Hot too and the air conditioners work fine.

I do not think the service caused anything.  It was just a truck place and not an RV place.

Our 2008 Cotessa with Valid  air leveling lists to the right in travel mode, chased it down to no signal going to solonod on right side, the diagrams show power coming from "leverler Brain". I can not find this brain, anyone know where it is.

Thanks Eric and Bill

I was able to find some led bulbs and holders for 10 buck, but unfortunately like you said Eric the back side had degraded on a few of the light contacts.

Thanks for the link Bill, I was about to cheap out at least for the inspection and mount a 14 dollar 3rd brake light on top of the original just to get it to pass.  Now for a few bucks more I'll just keep it looking factory.

What type of solenoid are you using?
Is it the solenoid coil that fails or the contacts?
If it's the coil you may have to upgrade it to a continuous duty solenoid.
If it's the contacts you may what to upgrade to a higher amperage rated solenoid with silver contacts
