loss of power

OK, did something stupid but it should have worked. I have a 2013 solaire and got home from hot weekend to empty camper, i unplugged the power from the garage, 20 amp so i could hook to generator to run ac 3500 watt gen. Turned everything off. hooked up, so far so good, turned fan on low started running not sure if compressor kicked or not, now i have no power inside camper. re hooked back to gargage and got out meter, 120 at end of shore power cord and 120 inside box but nothing works! any clues? wf-8725-P wfc ULTRA iii distribution center

Did you check the breakers in the electrical panel in the RV? Main tripped? Might look like it didn't trip but turn it to off and back on and see if it resets.
Do you have an electric element in the water heater? leave it turned on? too much initial load can trip the main as well.

Do you still have battery and 12 vdc for low voltage accessories? Sounds as though 30 amp AC breaker in coach has opened. May not be apparent try open then close to reset.

Check at your power converter/distribution panel, look for two 35 or 40 amp fuses one or both may be blown.

Camper went to the dealer today, we discussed how fragile the converter is and they said it seemed to be common.should be covered under warranty.

well, got my camper back, converter wasn't bad at all, turns out the 110V shore power inlet wire melted and shorted out. Dealer replaced wire and all works now. they also fixed another minor issue. going camping next weekend with my grandson, take him to the zoo and splash pad at Paul B Johnson State park.

Did the dealer happen to say what might have melted the wire in the first place?
