2009 Rockwood Electrical Issues

I just discovered today my 09 Tickets Rockwood is having electrical problems.

It's hooked up to 30amp on my property, and I verified it's getting power.

The weird thing is the microwave works, and a single GFCI outlet above the kitchen sink works. Other than that nothing else works... Lights, slide outs, fridge, other outlets...nothing.

I tried resetting the breakers, that didn't fix it either. Fuses look fine.

What could it be?

Let's see if we can troubleshoot this, and it may take several posts of questions to ascertain what all could be wrong.

When you say it is hooked up to a 30 amp on your property, is this a new installation as far as the RV is concerned. What I mean is this somethIng you have just started plugging the RV into, or have you used it previously on the same rv?

Have you also recently replaced or connected/disconnected a 12 volt battery in this RV?

It isn't new, this 30amp connection has been used for years on this same rv.

The rv has sat here connected and unused this entire year, however i know for a fact everything worked fine a couple months ago.

I haven't messed with the battery at all.

I'm back to my property and my rv still obviously has the same problems. The power tongue jack won't even work so can't move it.

Can anyone try to help troubleshoot my problems?

Follow the positive battery cable to a resettable circuit breaker

Your also confusing 12v items from 110v items.

You need to be checking your battery status and converter.

Everything that is not working is 12v , which is battery operated.
If your battery is dead and your converter isn't working all the things you describe not working "won't"

... except he said his "other outlets" didn't work either. I'm not sure how he tested these.

Since you didn't post what Rockwood model you have nor is it in your profile, hard to say exactly where the converter is.

Your battery should be on the A-frame.
