Halfway through maiden voyage.

At Misty Mountain Campground in Afton, VA (maiden trip for an Avenger 26BH). Things seem to be going well so far. Only possible issue is electrical. Hooked up to 30A service, but the battery wasn't charging, TV and microwave wouldn't work, and no power at the receptacles. Added the pigtail adapter and replugged into a 20A socket and everything is fine. Campground is going to test the 30A supply today. Anything I should check on my camper (ie. Could this still be operator error?)

Sounds like a problem with 30 amp service at the campgrounds to me.

Glad to hear all is well except for the 30 amp service.

This is the main reason why I carry a tester to test the plugs prior to plugging my camper in. I have seen a few posts about the campground being wired wrong and did damage or no power so my tester gives me a good indication of what I have before I plug in.
