I used my voltmeter to debug a similar issue w/ a 50 amp trailer for a friend. One leg of the outlet on the campground power pedestal was DEAD! The campground electrician had to replace the 50 amp breaker in the pedestal.

Check voltage in both legs of the pedestal outlet.

Was pretty sure, but had to ask. As everyone has said, you need to verify good power on each incoming leg. A good power/surge protector would have notified you of a problem.

you dodged a huge bullet

strongly advise that you purchase a power protection device

We use a portable "Surge Guard"

Portable Surge Guards With LCD Display - 50 Amp - TRC 34750-001-LCD - Surge Protectors - Camping World

Others use hard wired, and others prefer the Progressive Industries brand.
