Good morning Fellow Owners. We woke up this morning to a dilemma. We have no power to the fireplace, microwave, Dryer and the outlet between the two recliners. I reset every circuit breaker and still nothing. I reset the breaker at the pole and again nothing. I have a50 amp surge protector at the pole and it is indicating good power.

Any thoughts. For what it is worth my circuit breaker diagram is filled in but for the most part not legilble to dtermine what each switch controls.

Step number one is always check the GFI switches. I believe you'll find one of these in the bathroom, utility and kitchen areas. Also, even if the circuit breakers look like they aren't tripped, flip each one off and then back on. This should fix your problem.

Also check your convertor and battery levels. We had a convertor fail and it caused batteries not to charge and things not to work. I purchased a battery charger and kept it hooked up until we could get to service and have the convertor replaced.

Thanks. Found the issue. First I flipped all breakers off and back on. Even tried the main one. Then went to the pole and re did that breaker. My 50 amp surge protector indicated everything was fine. Apparently I had a bad connection from the surge protector to the shore power cord. Re-did the connection and everything came back up. Something about a line one and line 2 that I don't quite understand. But everything is back up and running. Mary Jo is happy. The dryer is running again.

Thanks for the help guys.

Rick

Also check the power cord where it connects to the coach. Ours came lose and we lost partial power. Re-tightened and no problem.

Well I am back in the land of no power. My surge protector says all is good. Line 1 115 volts and line 2 126 volts. No breakers are tripped. I tested them all any way. I disconnected the power at the pole, the cord connection to the surge protector and the connection at the coach. Still nothing. The dealer stopped by on Friday and disconnected the cord at the surge protector and reconnected and power came back on. I am puzzled and concerned. The dryer, microwave, and fireplace along with floor outlets are off. Any ideas.

I also found out that the coach only has one battery and that battery is undersized for the coach. The dealer is replacing and I am adding a second battery. But I can't see how that would impact this situation. Right?

Also the bedroom air doesn't work. And our warmest weekend yet in Door County.

Are your batteries charged? If not nothing works, including the refrigerator, microwave, etc. Get a portable charger and connect it to the battery. We had a similar problem and our convertor was bad.

As was said above... check your GFI's. They should have a small light illuminated on them if they are working. If they don't reset, replace them.

If I understand correctly you have some 110v things that work and some that don't. If that is the case, it sounds like you could have one leg that is down. The GFI shouldn't affect the A/C. If you have a cheap 110v tester you can check at the breaker box in the camper and see where you do and don't have power. It is possible that one side of your main breaker is bad. It may not be tripped, but there could be an internal problem that isn't letting the power through. Edited by: rcflame
