Shore power lost to Flagstaff 176

This morning, we suddenly lost shore power to our Flagstaff 176 SD LTD. The fridge was on and a cell phone charger was plugged in at the time. Things had worked fine for two days at the same site.

The GFI outlet had not tripped. The breakers and fuses look OK in the World Friendship power converter look fine - nothing tripped or blown.


I see no main breaker/fuse on the main power cable from the park's power post.


What do I check to get things back on line? All help appreciated. I have no test equipment available and am 150 miles from any city...

If you have an adapter try plugging into the 20 amp outlet and see if you have power that way. If you do you know it is the outlet at the campground.

I have seen the main breaker at a campground trip and killed power to a whole section of sites. Does your neighbor have power?

Thanks, but...

there is power at the pole. It has been tested by the owner.

Any other ideas?

If you have no 110v in camper then....
No power at pole.
Bad cable.
Connection at converter loose.
Main breaker at distribution center is bad or tripped.

If you have no 12v in camper then.
No 110v to converter.
Battery is dead.
Circuit breaker/s by battery/frame rail is tripped or bad.

Without a meter its a crap shoot.
Go buy a cheap meter at walmart its the only way to start testing.

I would check the power at the post personally and not take the word of the CG owner. Have you tried resetting the main breaker in the TT. Sometimes the breaker will trip and it will look as if everything is OK.
