AC power

2014 Shamrock 213KSS. Out camping this weekend, no issues until Monday AM, no AC inside camper (AC, microwave, outlets). 110 going to breaker panel, and each breaker, but nothing past the breaker panel. DC fuses all good. Any suggestions

So you've Checked for 110v at panel in your camper and have it there, but not coming out?
Gotta be 30 amp main in that panel then.

there's a main breaker an there are other breakers in line with the main, AC, microwave and the wall outlets. the main is working when I turn it on and off. the other breakers work. now I'm checking from green ground to the black wire on the breaker.

When checking for voltage, are you checking between hot and the ground bar or between hot and the neutral (white wires) bar?

Your outlets are usually protected by a GFCI. Usually one GFCI outlet feeds other "standard" outlets "downstream", so when the GFCI trips, the other outlets go dead.

http://www.electrical101.com/gfci-line-load-wiring.html

It is unusual to have the A/C on a GFCI circuit, but not impossible. The thermostat for your A/C may be run off of 12 volts DC. Check the manual for that info.

Unless I am reading something into this...maybe the 30amp(main) was tripped.

hay campers back again. the no power issue. the breakers never tripped, we were using a one cup coffee maker. We made one cup then we tried to make a second cup and the power went out. there is 120 at all the black breaker wires, checking from the green ground wire.

That leads me to believe you have a neutral issue. Did you check the voltage between black and white?

Are you sure you didn't trip a GFCI receptacle somewhere?

hay Bama Rambler: the only GFCI is in the bath room. that was not tripped. that's what I don't get not one of the breakers tripped. There is 120 from the ground to the neutral, I will go out right now and check voltage between black and white.

Try plugging something else in. Maybe your coffee maker is shot.
