Dead microwave plug

We're on the road and currently in Monterey, CA plugged into a 30A pedestal.

While my DW was making dinner the microwave just up & died. There is a plug behind the microwave and it's dead. Mostly dead. It reads a whopping 8.5 volts.

I reset all the breakers and GFCI circuits I know about. No luck there. Breakers under the bed, GFCI in the bathroom and bedroom. I'm thinking that the microwave plug is not GFCI and is probably on it's own circuit but I did not find one labeled as such.

DW is not happy without her microwave, and as we all know when the DW is not happy nobody's happy.

Any helpful hints?


Any ideas?

We had a 30 amp pace arrow, older than your bounder. It had a switch to select between the microwave or the spledide washer dryer. The switch was located where it was pretty easy to "knock" while working in the kitchen. Perhaps the switch got switched (if your coach has one)?

Cannon Man nailed it. One of the breakers on the inverter was tripped.

I had no idea that the A/C for the whole coach goes through the inverter. None of out trailers & fifth wheels were wired like that. I might have noticed it before I started ripping out the plug, but maybe not!

So much to learn! Thanks!

Though on a 30 amp rig is is possible to run everything through the inverter (Mine can pass 30 amps) normally the AC for the whole rig is NOT run through the inverter.

AC for the microwave however if you have at least 1500 watts of inverter, May be.

Likewise the Televisions. and .. Well, watever works when you are not on shore power.

Home is where I park it!
