Problems charging portable electronics?

We have a 2013 28bh patriot edition travel trailer. I am unable to charge portable devices. Any ideas. I have tried multiple cords and chargers.

What Dan said - we need more information. Are you on shore power? Do any other 110V appliances work?

I am plugging into any receptacle inside. Other appliances work ie coffee maker, fan and weather radio. My camper is plugged into 30 amp service.

If you plug a light or fan into the same outlet do they work?

GFCI tripped?

Reset ALL of the circuit breakers on you panel and then test and reset the GFCI's.

You probably do not have a pure sine converter.

^^Finally an answer^^

This has to be it I will have to check it out next chance I get. That would make sense. I did charge my phone plugged into the dc outlet by my tv and it charged fine but all other 110 outlets will not charge my iphone or samsung tablet. I thought that it was a signal issue so I bought a signal booster which only helped with my wireless signal. Thanks

So is your rig plugged in to power so that your 110 volt outlets will work?
