No 110 devices working

We are at the campsite and are plugged into 30 amp 110. No AC no TV. The fuses and breakers appear ok. I checked the power at the end of the cord. That is ok and the GFCI was tested and nothing happened. There is no fan noise coming from the power supply box. The camper is a 21FBRS Flagstaff just over a year old. Anything else I should try, or get a battery charger and limp through the weekend?

Sounds like you are the original owner so you would know if it has a surge protector of some sort?

Sometimes it's hard to tell if a breaker is tripped. I would try turning them all off and back on again.

Have tried shutting the breakers several times and I have not added a surge protector but that sounds like a great idea.

Have you tested power at the distribution
Center.

You said you checked the power at the end of "the cord". How did you do that? You could have an open neutral which would still allow you to measure 120v from the hot to the ground. You should have 120v from hot to ground AND from hot to neutral (and no voltage between ground and neutral).

I just have a little circuit tester I stuck in the female end of the shore cord plug. It lit so I had power. That was pretty much the extent of my electrical ability.

Have you talked to the campground and asked them to check it out? It sounds like there's no neutral at there end.

So to make sure I'm understanding this correctly, the power cord that you use to connect your RV to the pedestal detaches completely from your RV and with it plugged in to the pedestal, you measured voltage at the end that you would normally plug in to the outside of you're RV? Correct?

So as I said above, make sure that you observe voltage between one of the terminals where you had voltage before and TWO other terminals (eg, the "other one" you had before and one more).

Perhaps you should contact the park management and have them send a tech over to verify that your outlet doesn't have an open neutral.
