We may have been at the same place because the same thing was happening to us in MB the first week in July. We thought it was our site until we talked to others around us and realized it was 2 rows of sites that were loosing power. It sure was hot there for a while - especially with little wind off the ocean.
Here we are again this year. Backed in and plugged in right away to get the tt cooled down. 20 minutes into setting up, the DW sticks her head out the door and says the AC just went off. Checked the breaker in the TT and found it OK. Went to the pedistal and found the 30 amp breaker tripped. Closer inspection revealed that the receptical was cracked (probably someone pulled out without unplugging first
). Rather that re-hook and ask to be moved to another site, I just got out my trusty 50 amp to 30 amp adaptor and connected to their 50 amp receptical. Now 5 days later and we're nice and cool.
