Not to the outlet there not.

Only one leg of 110 goes into camper.
Other two prongs are neutral and ground

That was the second thing I tried, no power still.

The only way a 110 volt camper uses one leg of a 220 outlet, is when you use a 50 amp to 30 amp adaptor plug/cord.

Campground pedestals can have a 50 amp (220 volt) plug in and an 30 amp (110 volt) plug in.

You can plug your 30 amp trailer into a 50 amp outlet, provided you have an adaptor, which the adaptor only uses one side of the 220, and makes it 110.

I have a bad feeling about this.

In the FAQ forum, Herk posted a pdf file on wiring a 30 amp 110 volt outlet for your home.

Also, you may want to read this: Make sure to check out the links to the left on 30 amp, 50 amp, and outlet testing.

Don't feel bad man this happens more than you think !

At the minimum the converter/ distribution center is fried and not allowing power to the rest of the trailer .

Thanks, I just missed your post when I posted. Is the converter/ D. center serviceable easily? Is it the panel with the breakers or is it buried deep within the bowels of the trailer?

My deepest condolences.

You will need to visit your dealer and call your insurance company.

Plugging a 30 amp camper into a 220 wired RV plug will be an expensive mistake. The panel in a 30 amp camper is a 110 VAC panel and will not "split it up."

Potentially damaged items:

Converter - For sure
Air Conditioner - Maybe
Microwave - Maybe
TV - Highly likely
Fridge - Maybe
Water Heater (if it was on) - For Sure

Hopefully your electrician buddy will help you with your deductible.

One of our other members said 2 grand.

(SOLVED) electrician hooked TT up to 220

Power converter issue

Fried my microwave

If you plug into 220 and not 110 what would happen

Converter is also the fuse breaker panel .
Easily accessible.
That whole unit pulls out after removing screws.

Marcusfan was lucky last month, and got hers repaired for about $400, which included a rv service tech coming to her house and replacing the converter.
