120 volt system not working

I moved my camper to another location and everything worked when i plug in my 30 amp plug. I left and came back a few days later and now the 120 volt system is not working. Any suggestions?

Check the 30a breaker on the power pedestal.
Check the main breaker inside in the power center.
Check individual breakers in the power center.

I assume you can't operate your microwave and your TV

120 volt system not working

Is it a 30 amp plug?
Is it 240 v?

How did you measure the outlet?

How many lugs have 120 v?
One lug is ground
One lug is neutral
One is hot

Which lugs did you measure to check power?

My point is are you plugging into a 240v 30 amp outlet or a 120v 30 amp outlet?

I wired the 30 amp breaker to the pole myself... its a single pole 30 amp breaker so it only gets 120.. one thing about the box at the pole is that is doesnt have a neutral. i had to wire both ground and neutral together.. does that matter?

Just a thought. My point is, Could a GFI be the cause?

I have plugged in a light to an outside outlet on the TT, that worked in the home but did not work on the TT at a CG. I unplugged it. When I went into the TT, I found that the everything was off power and the fridge was running on gas.

I had to go to the pedestal and reset the breakers. Still no joy.

I went back inside the TT and reset the GFI at the bathroom and the power was back. I did have to click over the fridge back to power.

I plugged light back in again. The same situation. I don't use that light anymore.
