MORE:
I just came in from a quick trip to the TT. I glanced down at the now open control panel door. TWO breakers are now tripped. The second one is a 15A and labeled Genera.
I have the shore power connected, but nothing is turned on. I have no generator if that what that label means.

What on earth can be happening?

Just thought I would check......sometimes it is the simple things. Sounds like the breaker is shot, so your electrician should fix you right up.

Your electrician should be a big help here

He should have the meters to track down your problem.

I guess it is possible the strike took out your power distribution panel.
Not likely, but possiible.

The "Genera" labeled breaker could be a pre-wired circuit to a place in your rig where a generator could be installed. Maybe it was tripped before (ie OFF) and you never noticed it before. With all the hair pulling and running around wildly insane, you are looking for stuff.
ANYTHING to get it all fixed.

Relax and let "Sparky" fix your problem.

I had my eyes on that panel too much. Breaker number two (Genera) was intact before the power brownout during our daily PM thunderstorm today. Breaker number one (AC) went to see Jesus during Saturday's thunderstorm and brownout. They turn our 97 heat into steam, so you can imagine how much we love them.

Our electrician is a good friend. I hope he stays that way. I suspect he will after his check clears the bank.

Jan, who has given up any sort of hairdo, but then again, never did care all that much.

Electrician just left. He walked in the RV, clicked the breakers and they stayed clicked. He took things apart and told me everything appeared fine. Good thing we are friends, so I was not too embarrassed. I did reset them about 50 times to no avail. I think he believed me. $150.00 worth of 'diagnostics.' I would be upset except I was in a service business for almost 20 years and ya gotta charge for your time.
Oh well.
