If you have power at the rv hookup, it's down to plug, cable, wiring in coach or main circuit breaker in the rv. If you power was going on and off I'd look hard at the plug. The prongs take a lot of abuse.

You might try turning off all the 120 volt breakers and turn on one at a time. If it trips then that could be a bad circuit. If doesn't trip, test it to see what powers up. Test each breaker one at a time to see what works.

Excellent idea starting your search from the pedestal out. With your meter, make sure you have electrical power on the other end of the cord. If so, I would take the cover off the elec panel and CAREFULLY test the exposed cable leads into the back of the breaker to see if you have power going in. From there it's a matter of checking on down the line(s).

had a similar issue, drove me nuts, some stuff worked some didn't. turns out it was the GFI on the outlet outside the Trailer that got wet. Then I learned it's kinda common. I replaced that GFI cause it was no good any more, reselaed around the outlet and Bingo no more issues!

Good luck please post your resolution to the problem se can all learn something!

Issue resolved:

Disconneted from shore and used multimeter to test post power (120v)
Checked rv plug for continuity. Replaced new rv plug/cord.
Check battery have 12.9v.
Connected new plug back to shore power and TT.
Walked inside and pressed all the GFCI outlets which didnt even light this weekend.
Now ALL items work A/C, Microwave, 120V in all outlets.

So I will say it was a faulty plug/cord/connection that caused my issue.

Thank you all for the input!!

This is going to sound like a lie but just stumbling upon this thread I was literally getting ready to suggest you measure the voltage at the end of the cord with it plugged in to see if it was the cord that was the problem!

Glad you found your solution!

The detachable twistlock cords are known to go bad if you don't do the final twist, when attaching them. The connections will arc just a little, up until it finally can't make connection anymore due to the connections being burned. I think Herk has some good pics of this.

Not saying that's what happened in your situation, but pointing it out for future readers.

Glad you got it solved.
