Electrical problems

After moving from Oklahoma to NM, everything was working. The next morning I woke up and nothing was working on the left side of the breaker panel. No GFI outlets, microwave, ceiling fan, living room AC, in order to get the AC working, I pulled the 15/20 amp breaker from the right side of the panel and pulled the wire from the 15 amp side, capped it off and installed a 20/20 amp breaker and put both AC wires in the breaker. I have AC working on both units. But not much else. I also replaced the main 50 amp breaker, no luck? Anyone have any suggestions?

Use a meter and check the power at the pedestal. Also check at the coach end of your shore cord. If you have a cord reel you might need to bump it in or out a little to possibly get the contacts in a better position to pass the power thru. The pedestal breaker or your 50 amp main might have tripped. Reset and see it that makes a difference. If you have a transfer switch check the lugs there for power also. Could be a combination of things.

Sounds like you have lost 1/2 of you 50amp service. If you are using a portable surge protector at the pedestal remove it and see if that works. Those surge protectors only show voltage cumming in to them, not voltage going out to rv. I found this out the hard way.

I had a similar issue. I have a 2013 with a Gen prep. The problem was up in the battery area where the wiring came loose from the Gen prep.
I started on the other end tore the plug apart, then all the connections in the back behind the rear wheel. Then did some more reading and it was a simple fix up in the battery compartment. Best of luck
