Red face Stupid me...


I'm a rookie to the hybrid trailer world and...I made my first mistake!
I purchased a 2010 Rockwood Roo 21SS and while testing everything I turned on the trailer AC while it was connected to a 15amp connection. A few min later the AC was off and now the fridge will only use the GAS mode, and the mircowave has no power.

I checked all of the fuses (replaced them on the main panel) and there were no tripped breakers. Any ideas before I bring it to a repair shop? Everything else works fine.

Did you turn off all circuit breakers and turn back on to reset? Check your house breaker as well to make sure the plug you are using is getting power. We own a 2012 Jayco hybrid that we are selling because we upgraded to an Aviator. We love the hybrid and will miss it when we sell it. We did a similar thing and that is what we did. Good Luck

Are you plugged into a gfci circuit in the house?
What about the breakers in the house?

Or garage if that's where your plugged into.

What kind of adapter were you using? Could also be possible that you fried your adapter. It sounds like all A/C is out, would check your outlet for power first and work back towards your camper, testing each connection.

My money's on the circuit breaker (as mentioned above) in the house/garage power center (whatever power center powers the 15a circuit you mentioned). I had the same issue this week... found a tripped breaker in my main power box.

My second guess is a GFCI plug (as mentioned above) that controls the entire circuit on which your 15a outlet is attached.

I can't think of a case where wide-spread 110v AC outages are caused by fuses which are used in 12v DC circuits.

My AC draws about 16 to 17 amps, when compressor kicks on.

You use all the amps and your volts drops to low for anything else to work.

I blew the outdoor ground fault outlet when I did that inadvertently. Almost all newer homes will have that circuit on a GFCI, sometimes a couple of outlets upstream form the one you are plugged into.
