Electrical Problems

I have a 35 ft. 2003 Rexhall Rexair. It's sitting in the driveway plugged in to household 120VAC. I went out today to do some cleanup, vacuuming, etc. and there was no 120 VAC at the recepts in the coach. I reset the breakers in the panel under the fridge, and plugged and unplugged the coach to cycle the transfer switch. Still no 120 VAC. It's warm here, 93 degrees, so I start the genny, and run both rooftop A/C's. With the genny running, I still have no 120 at the recepts. Any ideas for me to try would be appreciated. The nearest repair facility is a two hour drive. Oh yeah, I did check and there was 121.5 volts at the end of the extension cord where I plug it into the RV.
P.S. I posted this over at the Rexhall Yahoo forum also, but I thought that it would get a little more exposure here.

If you have Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) plug in your RV try resetting it. If your GFCI plug has tripped, all plugs downstream will not have power.

Good Luck.

You may have tripped a breaker on your converter/inverter.

The exact thing happened to me. Muddy Paws hit the nail on the head, it was the breaker switch on the inverter!!

Electrical problem fixed......for now

Thank you to those who responded. I reset the GFCI in the bathroom and the problem went away .....for now. It is unbelievable to me that (1) literally every duplex outlet in the RV is daisy chained down stream of that thing, and (2) It hasn't tripped before now.

Morning dew invading the patio outlets can cause this. Then as the day grows warmer and the dew evaporates, the problem with the CGFI tripping seems to disappear. Nothing to worry about. But you might check that your patio outlets (and some rigs have one on the drivers side too) have good caulking.
