If the front air is working and you DON'T have the inverter on... then you have AC electric.. Look for a GFI plug thats tripped. You'll have at least 3 maybe even 4 with your RV.

Final solution accomplished this morning.

BAD Shore outlets....several, all tried at one time or another.

Finally found a good one. All systems working successfully.

Thanks to all who helped us diagnose and troubleshoot the problem.

Sorry to reply so late to your last posts, but for other's reference:

If the Surge Guard reads Line 1 with no amps, and the AC is running the problem is the wiring. The (front) AC runs off Line 1. It should show some amps. Even without the AC, it should show some amps. If there are no amps being used, that line has to be Line 2, since it is wired only to the AC and would not pull anything if the AC is off. Line 1 is always pulling some residual amp loads.

If the inverter reads "On", and the (front) AC runs, the problem is the wiring. If the AC is running, there IS shorepower (if no genset). If the wiring is correct the Xantrex control panel will read AC In/Charging, not Inverter On.

It almost looks as if Line 1 and Line 2 A/C inputs are reversed. You might now have quality service for both "Lines" and though reversed, all seems well. Based on your previous notes, either the inputs are reversed or the pedestal was was mis-wired. This can be complicated by a bad buck-booster (Hughes Autoformer, Power Master, Frank's Booster). Mine is currently misbehaving, though I'm aware of it and occasionally bypass it.

I had a problem in my coach a while ago.. None of the Xantrex powered outlets or hardware had power.. Inverter showed 120vac incoming, and outgoing, showed inverter mode if I tripped the 120 volt breaker that feeds it (An easy way to test it) but no output.

Pulled off the connection cover and quickly found the problem

Re-dressed and re-connected the wire and all was good again.

Home is where I park it!
