No power, help!

Currently at Ocean Lakes in Mrytle Beach and just had our CO detector go off and have no lights or fridge working. Checked fuses, battery and checked plugs with a voltage meter and shows good. Not sure what to do. Help?

Something happened on the 12V side sounds like. What's your battery voltage? There's circuit breakers separate from the fuse panel, make sure one of those isn't tripped or there's a connection issue there.

I've checked 3different plugs with all showing 120. All breakers are good.

Your lights run off 12 volts. The plugs just tell you that you have power to your rv. It almost sounds like you turned off your battery disconnect by mistake? Do you have one of those on your unit. The lights should work from the battery even if your converter is not on. You have a DC problem...

Check your battery connections. Typically tongue jack connects directly to battery via its on I line fuse.
Also look for circuit breaker on frame around battery. Some are resettable

My mistake, 5ver, no TRAVEL TRAILER. Not sure where front jacks get power but sounds like main battery cb or battery kill switch.

Just checked the battery disconnect and appeared fine. Wiggled it a little and came inside to find E-0 code flashing on fridge. Lights not so sure yet.
