Thank you for your help.

do you have a voltage tester? and do you know where your transfer switch is located?
Start at the power source. In other words the rv park power pole
Check the power there.
check the power at the end of your cord prior to hooking to RV. If good
Check power going into transfer switch. if good
Check power going out of transfer switch. if good
Check incoming power at Power distribution center
(most likely above fridge) if good
check the power at one of the 110 volt breakers
Your problem has to be located at one of those points because that is how the RV is wired
Once you figure out where the problem is, I can try and come up with a temporary solution to your dilemma.
Since you have power via the generator, the problem is either within the transfer switch or between the transfer switch and the shore power pole.
If you don't have a voltage tester see if you can borrow one or go to the local Harbor freight, Home Depot, Lowes, Hardware store and get one.
a basic multi-meter should be standard equipment in everyones RV tool bag.
If you keep your eye out for the Harbor Freight adds and coupons, they have a coupon for a free one on a regular basis. they work just fine.
Another good tester is your basic neon light 12 volt auto tester. wire hooks to ground, probe touches hot wire and if you have 12 volt power the neon light works.
