Unhappy Aerolite Cub electrical issues

Purchased a used 2010 Aerolite Cub hybrid. Used it for the first time on Father's Day weekend. Everything worked great. Towed it 17 miles back home and now the AC, microwave and refrigerator do not work. Have checked all the fuses, circuit breakers, GFCI. Still can not get it to work. Thought I would check to see if anyone has had this issue before I haul it to an RV service dealer.

Welcome to iRV2.

Sorry your here with problems .
Questions .
Now that you have the RV home , what kind of circuit are you plugged into?
If that circuit is GFIC protected , you may have tripped the GFIC at the house.
What kind of extension cords , adapters are you using ?
You said A/C not working ; UNLESS , you are plugged into a minimum 30 amp dedicated circuit , your A/C will overload the supply .
Have you tested the house outlet and cord?

Tried all of that. The RV worked fine on my house current before I left for the weekend. I called Dutchmen. If is either a bad GFCI in the bathroom which will be easy to replace or a short in the system which will not be easy. Thank you for your response.

A short in the system should trip a breaker somewhere , in the RV panel or in the house , an open circuit would be harder to trace .
Try this , turn off all the circuit breakers in the RV panel EXCEPT the dedicated one for the A/C , to see if you get any power to the A/C .
You could be looking at an open in the power cord or the connection from the cord to the RV. Even a loose connection to the main breaker in the panel box.

Found it and it was a dumb one. When I got home I plugged in quickly because of the heat. One of the RV plug blades was bent and not all the way in to the adapter. I bought a new adapter and found that the other one was not fully plugged in. I am a newbie and just learning. Thank you for your suggestions. I now have an extra adapter which is not a bad thing,
