Both are 120 vac....have you checked your circuit breakers? Do your other 120 vac items work....like the A/C, outlets, TV etc. ???

Checked circuit breakers and nothing is tripped. I didn't try the a/c but everything else seems to be working.

breaker can appear to be NOT tripped when they are tripped...
best to cycle the breaker all the way off/on

Plus use a multi meter to confirm 120v is on the breaker input Bar ... and output wire

From what I've read, there's a rocker switch for the fireplace/microwave so you don't use them at the same time.

What is the model number of this Wildcat?
Is it a 50 amp or a 30 amp unit?

Fireplace and microwave no power

My fireplace and microwave have no power. I have a 2018 Forest River 35WB 5th wheel. I have reset the GFI and nothing is happening.

Are you plugged into power?
If so is anything 120 working?
Is the pedestal circuit breaker on?
To trouble shoot this start at the pedestal and work toward the camper. You will need a multimeter and the know how to use it.
Let us know when you find the problem.

Have you checked any of the suggestions mentioned since your 1st post on 3-16-2024?

Should the pedestal circuit breaker be on?

I have learned from other post that on many models the microwave and fire place share a beaker in the power center. Turn it all the way off and back on.

Just a thought

Yes, if you want 120 volt AC power.

I'm confused... if you are plugged into power and everything else is working, the pedestal breaker must already be on?

Sorry I thought maybe this was a separate breaker.
