Georgetown GT3 30x3

Everything worked fine at the dealer. Went to the unit today (3 days after buying) and neither of the TVs or the microwave have power. Can anyone tell me if there is a breaker tripped somewhere or what I can do beside driving all the way back to the dealer?

I don't have a 30x3 but all motorhomes have a breaker panel. The microwave should have a break switch for it and may be one other receptacle. The TV should be on a separate breaker. Most breaker panels will have a brown cover that when pressed will pop off. Look for two breakers that are tripped. It may be hard to tell which ones are tripped so you may have to switch each one off all the way towards the lower part of the switch and then up until you hear a click.
Your problem is not unusual but should not happen very often if at all.
You may even have a GMCI receptacle that has tripped. Look at those also.
Good luck

Thanks. No breakers were tripped. I turned all off and then on again. I'll look for a tripped GFCI plug.

Now...don't take this the wrong way, but are you plugged into shore power?

That being confirmed, normally the microwave and the TVs are connected to different circuits. If the main breaker is on, I agree that a GFI hunt should be your next adventure.

No power to TVs or Microwave if running on generator or just on batteries.

you have to be plugged into shore power or to the outlet inside the cabinet with the cord if running the generator. These items do not run off the batteries

TV is plugged into the outlet in the cabinet when the generator is running but still no TV or Microwave.

Do you get 110 volts at any receptacle when plugged into shore power or generator running?
If yes then you have an open in one or more circuits.
If not then it may be your transfer switch not engaging.
These would be the first question I would ask someone with your issues.
