50 Amp Power Problem
My wife has the three grandkids staying in our fifth wheel about an hour from home while I stay home and work. It's their annual "Gran-E Camp".
Yesterday the power went off in the trailer and she called the campground. They came and reset the circuit breaker, but later she realized the ceiling fan wasn't working...the TV wouldn't come on...only one A/C was running and several of the outlets had no power.
She called me and I stepped her through checking the circuit breakers in the trailer, checking fuses, etc. all to no avail.
So - when I got off work, I went back down to the campground and found that the refrigerator was running on gas rather than electricity.
I admit that I know just enough about electricity to be dangerous probably, but I seem to recall that a 50-amp circuit has "two legs". I re-checked the campground circuit box and found what appeared to be lots of loose-fitting breakers.
So - I pulled the shore plug and moved it over to another site adjacent to us...and suddenly we had power. Both A/Cs working...TV, ceiling fan, refrigerator.
So - I share this to advise you...don't always trust campground personnel who reset a breaker and don't wait around to verify that everything is working properly.
