Microwave 2002 KS no power

Took MH out for the first trip this past week and don't have any power to the microwave. Checked the breaker and it wasn't throwed. Where do I start now ?

I don't know if it was factory , but the microwave plug at the outlet in the cupboard beside the microwave has a single plug surge protector in my coach .

Could be that protector is shot( if there is one) , or someone unplugged the microwave to stop it flashing rather than reset the clock.

Plug something else into the outlet to verify that the problem is the outlet and not the microwave. If outlet doesnít have power, I would flip the breaker off and then back on rather than visually looking to see if itís tripped (perhaps you already did this). Sometimes itís hard to see that itís tripped. Not sure if microwave outlet is on GFCI protected circuit. Check for other outlets that donít work and reset GFCI as needed.

Elec. outlet

It is plugged into a small box with a lite on it. There is no current in the outlet so I guess I need to go to the breaker and start there. It was all working just fine. Unhooked it at house and went to lake and hooked it back up there was no power. I have flipped the breaker several times and it did nothing.

If it was working at one shore plug and not at another , first place to start is the power post , if you're in an RV park . Sounds like one dead leg in a 50 amp plug.

Do both roof air conditioners work , is the microwave the only dead outlet?

Microwave

When we got to the CG we had some problems with the power thought it was the power pole. Move location and same thing, so I took the plug apart and found the white center wire was pulled out, I redone it and all seemed to be working. Later when we tried the microwave it wouldnít work

Microwave

I went out and messed with it some more, the plug is not surprised I didnít get shocked. The inside lite comes on when I open the door. So now Iím having to rethink this and figure out what I need to check now I did find out you canít buy a new one like it.

Plug is not, has power to it.
