HoI3 - Supply

I have a couple questions about supplies. In a current game I am playing (as the USA), I have my naval fleet (3 carriers, 6 other ships) in San Fransisco and it is not supplied, and it will not build up supplies, san fransisco has industry (which i think is where the supplies come from?) is this a bug, or am I missing something basic? Can someone please run down some tips on supplies, routes and the mechanics of it please?

Well supply should be built there, but since the US doesn't need much supply and you have a lot of IC, the amount actually built in SF is small. I recommend creating a supply convoy to San Fran; that should fix the issue quickly.

What he means is create a Supply Convoy from Washington to San Francisco. The lack of supply is probably due to consumption outpacing delivery. If you drastically increase supply demand in a far away province (like SF) by moving a bunch of troops there via rebase or transport, then it can take a while for the supply movement to the new demand levels. Meanwhile your troops and sailors are helping themselves to full rations.
