no electric in rv

2002 Forest River RV

we had electric one day, the next we didn't whether we plugged in or used generator.

we had a space heater plugged in and i think it blew a fuse? by the bed, one of the 30 amp fuses was off - i turned it back on, but no electric

(I am not sure this fuse feels right - it seems a little "loose")

I cannot turn that GF thing on in the bathroom like I used to.

I was told to check the "inverter switch" - but I don't know where the inverter switch is? can anyone tell me where the inverter switch is on a 2002 forest river?

I think you mean your breaker not fuse. Flip the breaker to the off position then flip it back on. When a breaker trips sometimes the only way to reset it to flip it all the off then back on.

Welcome to the Forum. It helps when you ask questions if you tell us what you own (pop up, fifth wheel, class A motorhome, etc.) and the brand such as Cardinal, Sunseeker, Wildwood, Sanibel, Berkshire, etc.

First check your all your breakers into your AC panel, turn them off to reset then back on. Next if still no power, check to see if you have an auto-transfer switch, usually where your shore power come in the coach, might be damaged.

Breaker should not feel "Loose" when on or off. When it is "loose" it is usually tripped. To reset it must be turned all the way off first and then back on. It should be a little "stiif" when turning on or off.
