Lost all AC power

Lost all AC power-- DC power works- All fuses seem ok- no breakers tripped. Ideas?

If you have a late model Sunseeker with an Onan generator thereís a possibility of a stuck transfer relay. Start the generator and if you have power then youíve found the problem. Those relays are notorious for attracting dirt. Itís an easy fix.

And, if you do get power from the generator when you shut it down the relay will self-repair itself. But, it will happen again.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Do you have a EMS, either plug in or built in? If there is a problem with the quality of power, the EMS will shut down the AC to protect the RV components.

Also if that is not it, I would flip all the breakers "off" and then back "on". Sometimes when one flips it does not look like it's tripped. For the entire RV to be out, it would have to be the Master breaker or an EMS to affect everything though.

It is also not impossible for an EMS to fail. Did you have any lightning since it last worked? Does not have to be a direct hit to kill an electrical device and the EMS is made to go before the trailer components. If it's a Progressive Industries EMS, they have a lifetime warranty and they should swap it out.

Or like was previously posted if you have a generator, it could be the transfer switch relay stuck.

There are only a few things that would affect all AC power being out. It will just about have to be somewhere between the power source at the pedestal and the breaker box in the main feed (from shore power or the generator if you have one).

I would start at the pedestal and make sure you have power there before you start tearing the camper apart. It may be that the whole campground is out or you may have tripped the breaker for your pedestal only. If you have power at the pedestal then start working back toward the camper.

Check generator

There are also breakers on the generator that should be checked. I've had then trip. Take the cover off the generator and the breakers are by the start switch.

You have to start with the basics.

Is there power where you are plugged in?

Do you have a multimeter and know how to use it?

A statement like "Lost all power" could have 27 ways to Sunday of things that could cause it.
Until we have more information and know what you have checked/not checked, we are all simply guessing.
