Rice cooker and microwave has knocked out a fuse or breaker

I can,t find the offending circuit breaker/fuse. I have reset the circuit breaker for the microwave. It was not tripped. I have checked the 20 amp fuse for the kitchen. All ok. I have the sink great ac plug down, the kitchen 110 down and the microwave. The stove fan and light ok, the house lights and 12 volt lights ok,the bedroom 110 plugs out. All the 110 plugs (wall sockets for ac plugs). What am I missing?

Dinner is on hold. V/R. rch

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.

Two buttons. One is “test/trip” the other reset.

It sounds like you’ve lost all AC power. The Forester doesn’t need ac for much...and you’ve described all the affected ac items
Have you checked the main 30 amp breaker in coach, or the breaker at the outside power source?

If you have a light at the outside receptacle where the cord plugs in but still no ac inside try starting the generator. If power comes back from generator let it run a couple minutes then shut down. Power may be restored.

Sounds like you tripped the main circuit breaker either in your unit or the one you are plugged into out side. Sometimes my surge protector will trip and has to be reset.
GFI can't be reset if no power to it. Check the pedestal outside.

Thanks to all. It was the outside power circuit breaker that tripped. I never even thought to check it. I am glad I didn’t,t keep pulling fuses till I broke something. You guys have saved me again. Being new is not easy. Great night to all. rch
