Angry electrical 125 volt problem

My meter shows 60 volt no amps. All my 125 volt powered items are working find. Conected to shore power or generator the meter in the cabinet show only 60 volts and 0 amps. What also is the correct procedure when switching lt system from shore power to 12 volt or generator power.

Your meter is broken. Do you have separate "AC Voltage" and "AC Amps" meters? The measurement of "Amps" is dependant upon load, so if you can turn on some high usage items (water heater, hair drier, etc.) then you should see the ammeter show usage.
I'm not sure what you mean by switching between 110V and 12V - one is AC and the other is DC and one needs batteries and a charger and perhaps inverter to switch between the two.
