Check the breaker on the post and in your breaker box. Check for power out of pole with a volt meter.

Is the breaker on the shore power turned on? Is your coach main breaker turned on?

Since this is a MH, if you have a generator, does the 120 volt items work when it's running?

After you try the tests/fixes that are already mentioned, are you sure that ALL the AC circuits are not working? Specifically, does your AC work?

If your AC works, but none of the outlets work, then you probably have a tripped GFCI outlet. GFCI outlets look like normal outlets but they have a red "Reset" button in the space between outlets. Push the reset button and see if that fixes your problem.

Not all GFCI outlets have a red "Reset" button. The 2 that are in my TT are black and when tripped the button is just slightly out from the face. When reset the button is slightly in from the face. The "Test" button is flush.

Camp ground requirements, you are to shut off main breaker at box when folks leave a site. So I would start there and check it. Later RJD

This happened to me on the first trip last year in my 3011ds. The battery would charge with the engine running or the generator but nothing on shore power. It ended up being the converter under the bed. I did some voltage tests that the company who made the converter had on their website and it was definitely bad. I replaced it and has been fine since. We had to run the generator during the day on that first trip and use as little power as we could overnight. The lights would barely work in the morning.

I really hope yours is not that and is just a bad fuse or something. I looked at everything else in the RV before even realizing that I had a converter

When we first started in motorhome, I plugged in and surprise no power. After a couple of minutes of pure anxiety, I looked and saw breaker was not on - pure relief. Since then, no problem

Well after a day and a half I’m thinking he figured it out and all is well at the campsite.
So I’m just chalking this one up as a “post n poof”.

Happy Trails and Remember the Pequod.
