Kitchen outlets not working

We just go out 2018 Salem Hemisphere 27. We are camping from home to get everything set up and ready so we are plugged into extension cord to our house. We have a 50amp camper so I ordered a 50 to 30 and then my husband put a converter extension on to use the home extension cord. The 2 outlets (kitchen counter and island) didnít work? I bought a dog bone 50amp to go directly to outlet power cord. That make the outlets work! Yay. But when I unplugged it to check my new power cord 50amp to 50 amp (to use at actually campsite) (after making sure if fit I unplugged it and replaced my dog one for the 50amp to extension cord to our house power. It made my 2 kitchen outlets stop working again. I tried unplugging and replugging to see if they will work again but no luck. Has anyone had this problem? I need my kitchen outlets and want to fix this before we head out.

Your description is somewhat confusing. Please describe in detail the connection from the house outlet to the camper. When you say 50 to 30 and 50 to 50 are you referring to power cords or adapters. What you need is a 30A to 50A adapter and a 15A to 30A adapter. Or a 15A to 50A adapter. #3

Iím going to go out on a limb here, not knowing the specifics with your rig.
Do you know if the kitchen and island outlets are GFI controlled outlets?

If, while youíre using all the different adapter cords to step down and power your rig from your house, if the house outlet itself is ALSO a GFI outlet (most exterior house and garage outlets are) sometimes GFI outlets donít play well with other GFI outlets.

Yes, good point.
Also, if you are plugged into the house, it's most likely 15 amp outlet (possibly a 20A if it's out of the garage). Are there other things running off the shore power either in the trailer or on the same circuit in the house which might trip circuit breakers? Speaking of which, did you check the breakers in your TT panel to make sure they aren't tripped?

I had the same problem and the adapter was bad. GFCI would trip and not reset.
