Need help, camping Friday

We have a 2010 831RKSS. I went to plug in the trailer tonight and found no power, completely dead. Checked the fuse panel inside and it is dead as well. No red lights on the right and a couple breakers on the left were tripped. I reset those breakers and I could hear the water heater kick on then its breaker tripped again.

Is there another breaker or fuse panel somewhere else that I'm missing? The trailer worked fine when we parked it last month. I did have an electrician add an outside 30 amp outlet to the side of the house and we tested the trailer after install and everything worked as it should, even the AC.

Any help would be great as we're suppose to leave Friday afternoon and have the weekend already paid for. Thanks.

Microwave

A/c
Fridge

Hw heater

Electrician's whom are not campers don't realize this because of the style of plug that's used .
It resembles a dryer plug which is 220v

if that was the case, he would have fried on the initial plug in.

i found my sunset trail similarly dead last weekend. the plug had slipped out partially from the 110 15 amp outlet i had it connected to. i reseated the plug and it must have reset the coverter, because everything returned to life.

If he did the air should have blown immediately but the fact that breakers were tripped sure makes you wonder, check the voltage at your new outlet first.

Not true at all ! A month or so same thing happened to another poster .
They turned air on and seen it worked .
They shut everything off and days later went back and nothing worked.

at a minimum, try plugging into a regular 15 amp 110 outlet using an adapter

I was under the impression that even if it was 220, it's only 110 per leg then the panel in the trailer divides it up as needed.

Aren't campgrounds wired 220?
