No AC Power

Newbies here. Love camping. This year got everything ready to go. Air conditioner and outlets have no power. Lights, radio and anything on DC power working. Thought at first it was just they Air conditioner. Replaced capacitor. No AC power at all. Help.

Did you check all the breakers in the house and the RV?
How are you plugged into the house? What adapter are you using?

welcome to the forum. this thread is going to go 100 different ways quick. depending on how you are plugged in at home I would not be trying to run the a/c or there may not be enough juice to get it going.

Did you plug the cord into a GFI outlet? If so, it may have tripped.
It would also help if you put your RV information in your profile.
We have no idea what type of RV that you have, nor brand or model.

You still havenít answered how itís plugged into the house. Are you using a 30A -> 15A adapter to plug into a standard household outlet? If so and you ran the A/C you either tripped the breaker in the house breaker panel or you tripped a GFCI outlet thatís on the same circuit.

First step is to test/check the outlet on the house. Getting power there or not? If not then itís a problem on the house side. If you have power there then the issue is on the RV side, could be a bad adapter or something upstream. You have to follow the path the power flows and figure out where itís stopping to know where the issue is.

Just as above you need to check:
Outlet you are plugging into is it GIF or switched
House breaker
RV breaker
The cord
the Adapter
the Converter on the RV
