Is there power where you plugged it in?
Is it a switched outlet for instance?
Verify good power with a voltage tester.

Is there voltage at the power panel?
Check Breakers - one (the biggest one) - is the main.

Do you have 12 volts? Do your lights work?

AC is not on a GFCI circuit

They original poster said he was plugged into the house and has no power. This could be caused by a GFCI that has tripped. They did not say that they did not have DC voltage that would not be protected by a GFCI. All AC should be protected by a GFCI.

I am also having the same problem. Generally I like to plug into shore power the night before a trip just to ensure good charge and to get the fridge cold.

I have checked all the breaker (house/TT) and GFIs... all good. Sometimes I can get power to TT but when I turn AC on, power will shut back off. I am also using EMS surge protector.

How old is your battery? Is it bad?
A bad battery will cause issues.
In the faq section there a way to also test your converter if its a wfco brand.

Have not tried w/out the surge thinking maybe it was protecting the TT electronics. Wouldn't that be defeating the purpose of have the surge protector? Thought about it though...
