Did you check the breaker at the power supply pedestal?

Checked breakers inside- went outside and the on the main pole to our CG, there appears to be a line that blew up! Fire dept here and everything! I'm wondering if it cause a surge and fried my microwave and ac bc we don't have a surge protecter but all other outlets and ac worked before we lost total power just now

Sounds like one side of the power feed to the campground has problems. You're likely not going to know what is what in your rig until you find out what is going on that made the line blow up and bring the fire department. You may not have problems at all.

Hope all is well with you, now!
I wanted to mention, that we had a problems with the outlets on our island and found to our amazement that there was a surge outlet in the bathroom that must be connected to the island. We pushed the trip button and it all worked again. We went to all the inside/outside hoops before discovering that one! Must be all 110's are connected? Don't know! Learning though! Happy camping

Thanks Ree! I was so confused too bc the other outlets on the same circuit worked- I've tripped them a few times having too much plugged in lol! I threw the breaker to the gfi thinking it would solve it but then lost total power- the electric company had to replace the transformer and a wire at our campground- very scary! And we're researching surge protectors now for the shore power- happy camping to you too! 😃

When doing your research highly consider Progressive Industries. They are viewed among many here to be the best because their not only surge protectors but Electrical Management Systems. Link: Progressive Industries RV Surge and Electrical Protection industry lea
