Power going out

Got back to my 36fl today and tv wasn't working neither was the microwave, so I checked GFCI and brakers all good check voltage on some of the working outlets, and I'm getting 123v few minutes ago fridge gave me a error of low ac , carbon monoxide detector going off too saying not power supply. Anyone here know what to look for ? Maybe inverter going out?

More questions than answers right now. Are you plugged into shore power? 30 amp or 50 amp? Where are the 110v outlets that do work? Are all of the non functioning outlets in a slide out?

Probably not the inverter, as it does not power the microwave. You need to find out all the circuits that are not operative. Make sure that there is power on both halves of the power panel. The service (from the shore power cord) is two equal 120 Volt 50 amp service ending at the 2 pole 50 Amp breaker in the power panel. Multiple voltage loss indicates something wrong with one of these legs. A multimeter should show what's missing.

Yes plugged in to 50amp shore some of my outlets still work but I already consumed all my battery power so I'm in the dark , to me that means nothing going to converter to charge battery's right? I wouldn't know how to check the legs on the 50 amp service. I'm only a low voltage guy wouldn't even know what to set my meter to

It does sound like a problem at the pedestal ...

So what you guys are saying is that if only 1 legs on the pedestal is working I could still be getting power on some of my 110 outlets but maybe not on the one that converts 110 to 12v to turn on lights right?

That is exactly right. Your 50 amp is comprised of two different legs of 110 and a neutral which is also a combined ground. Some would say 108 or 115 or Even 120. That all is dependent on your utility and distance from a transformer, not a big deal here. I would start at the box. Each leg in the socket should give you 110v. Red lead on your meter to one square hole and black lead to the round hole. If that is good then I would more to where you can first access the other end of your power cord. (Plug it back in) In my rig, I installed a surge protector/line conditioner so thatís where I would go. It also has a remote module that shows me voltage on each leg and any errors it encounters, you may want to consider one. You may go straight to your panel. Again you need the red on a hot and black lead on a ground or neutral. Let us know what you find to here and we can probably go further if necessary.

And yes, you are not getting power to charge the batteries for sure.

Well here is some news after my list of " what could it be" and discarding certain things looking at youtube videos how to test pedestal I remembered that my power cable has extra 30ft added to it from a problem in a different park. So I took my plug to next spot over and WALLA problem solved!
