Lost several DC circuits

Set up today and all was working well. Came back and water pump, refrigerator and range fan/ light are not working. DC lights and vent fans are working, slides are working.

Any ideas? I have checked disconnect, and have proven DC at the power panel. Not sure what would be common to these circuits.

Yes, fuses that I can find are good. I found 2 30 amp fuses on the frame rail, along with a resettable circuit breaker. And all the fuses in the main panel are good.

If the DC circuits came back as if by some divine intervention I would start looking for a bad or corroded ground. I would clean and redo all the ground associated with the circuits that were effected.

I bet they all share that common ground!

You may have a loose ground in the Main panel

Since it came back on, it was most likely a loose connection and since all the DC circuits weren't affected it could be somewhere in the distribution panel itself. I'd pull it and check all the connections tightness. Then check all the ground connections you can find.
