Do you have any AC power to the unit? Microwave light on? Is the home outlet you have it connected to protected by a GFCI? Have you checked the breakers in the distribution panel?

Some GFCIs do not play well together. Try to use an outlet in the house that is not GFCI protected.

Next time it may be the bathroom GFI the is tripped. You will have no bath, kitchen counters, outside and maybe the microwave. Try to plug into a non GFI protected circuit.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

When the next thing happens, just remember this incident.
It'll help you slow down because there'll be more down the road.

If those problems happen on site, ask your fellow campers in the campground if anyone can help. Most of us have "been there - done that" and are glad to help a fellow camper any way we can.

Most trips I use more of my tools & "stuff" helping other campers more than myself. Good people is what makes camping great.
