A/c shouldn't be on a gfci.
You said a/c in bedroom does that mean you have two a/c units?
You should then have two circuit breakers.

Blown fuse? Are you plugged into 30 or 50 Amp power?

We really need more info to figure this out, and can be several things wrong.....and hope you haven't had an over voltage situation, like maybe connecting to a 240 volt outlet somehow.

1. The microwave ONLY works off of 120 volt AC power, and the air conditioner works off of 120 volt AC power too, but also needs 12 volt DC power to the thermostat control for it. So we need to narrow down the problems to 120 volt to begin with.

2. What are you EXACTLY plugged into for 120 volt AC power ? Are you using any kind of adapters on the power cord to possibly plug into something (like a 30 amp outlet)? Are you using the generator? Are you using any kind of EMS (electrical management system) that cuts power to the RV if a problem exists.

If you are at a campground, have you checked the circuit breakers on the campground pedestal?

3. Do other 120 volt AC things work? Television, or something plugged into an electrical outlet?

4. Were these items working, but then quit without any event happening. Like you first connecting to a power pedestal, or anything?

Thanks and hopefully we can narrow down the root cause and get you fixed up.

I am making a few assumptions, since you stated you have a bedroom air conditioner, which I am surmising your RV is of the 50 amp type. A 50 amp RV has two legs of incoming 120 volt AC power, so basically half of your RV is on one leg, while the other half is on the second leg.

If some of the RV's 120 volt stuff is working, but not others, then you could have a problem with just one leg of 120 volt feed...and thus just the things on that one leg are not working.

This is why we need to know what you are connected to for 120 volt power, and HOW you are connected to
same for 120 volt AC power.

Here is a google pic below showing a 50 amp electrical distribution panel so you can see how some stuff is one side, and other stuff is on the other side, as per the diagram above. You may can look at your RV's distribution panel and then see if the items NOT working are all on the same side.

Just a guess on my part, but it sounds to me like maybe you're lost power on one leg of the outlet you're plugged into. Do you have a way to check that?

I reciently had one wire in the 50 plug on the connecting cable slip away from the screw which killed one side of the breaker panel. Quick fix after isolating the cause.

I had the same problem. One side of the 50 amp fed those two things. One hot wire was loose in the cable plug. Tightened it up, no more problem.
