No power

Ok so when I am plugged in at home all,of a sudden I have no power to the slide out the awning and the lights something has drained my battery BUT the microwave works and has power. I have checked all the fuses etc no problems.
When I plug it into the truck everything works just fine also I have checked the electrical cord etc everything seems fine. Does anyone have an idea what's going on? Thanks

Converter issue. Converter could be dead or Tripped circuit breaker.

By chance is the breaker in the same place as the rest , because I checked all those and nothing was tripped.

Check two high current in the converter. 30-40A. Usually orange /brown.

Checked all the fuses but will check again what really confuses me is why when plugged into the truck everything works.

It sounds like your converter is not producing any 12 V DC. Check the high power fuses in the converter/fuse box. When you are plugged into the truck your truck is providing the 12v dc to the RV via the cord plugged into the Truck.

Current limiting curcuit breaker should be checked by the battery as well.
More often then not they are resetable.
