no power

Ok so I plugged my computer in to the same outlet as usual. Needed to charge. I left the camper to go do some work for my grandmother. When I returned, the computer was dead, and unfortunately so was the plug. All of my lights work, except I'm finding that 2 plugs in the galley do not work. On separate sides of the camper. both in the galley. The breakers seem fine. Fridge is working. Lights are working. No red lights on my fuse panel so fuses fine. help?????

Toby, as time goes on, you'll learn what items in your unit operate on 12v and what on 110v electricity. Your outlets are straight 110v (unless powered by an inverter) and are not affected by fuses. Most of the time, outlets will be daisy-chained behind a master GFCI outlet where you punched a button to reset. Your lights are (probably) 12v and are not clues as to good/bad operation of your outlets.

As Dan pointed out, you have different electrical systems in your RV (120 volt AC and 12 volt DC).

The below is a copy and paste, and I usually recommend it to those just starting out. Some of it, you may already know, or may not be applicable to your particular RV. You will be able to filter out what pertains to your situation or not. I would suggest you read the electric threads and energy management first, and then the converter thread. This will help explain your different electrical systems of your RV, and how they well as what the converter does.

You can just peruse at your leisure:

Basic electric:

Basic RV Electricity - RV Information (RV Maintenance)

RV Electric

Your very important converter:

RV Converters and Amp Draw - RV Information (RV Maintenance)

Suburban water heater (if applicable to your RV):

Water Heater bypass/crossover valves:

And the newest addition to help understand what constitutes a true full cylinder in refilling vs exchanging propane cylinders

Hope this helps.
