Not knowing where you are getting power; checked the campground pedestal breakers? Checked the inverter breakers? Checked the generator breakers?

More info would be helpful. Are you plugged in to shore power?? If so, is there power @ the pedestal?? Breaker tripped @ the pedestal??

Do you have 110V when the genset is running??

Have you checked the inverter circuit breaker??

Try powering down and then bring power back on line to see if you can hear the contactor engage in the electrical bay.

If your hots are still hot, the first place to check is a loose or bad neutral. test from hot to ground and then hot to neutral.

Get the meter out and go back to the last location you HAVE power. I have gone through this only to discover it was the park's pedestal.

Check the breakers on the inverter. They are probably only 15amp and are easily overloaded.

had that happen once in my primary summer park. Not only did I loose 120vac, so did the rig next to me and the one on the other side of it..

Had it happen at my house too, and the neighbor's and the other neighbor's. (Why the house was equipped with a Generator transfer switch and inlet and the motorhome had a matching outlet)

All the breakers are fine. I think it is the internal transfer relay. If I push in the reset button the inverter will turn on for about ten seconds and then shut off.Must have a blown board!

Last nite the inverter started flashing the lights on the 110vac side and the 12vdc shutdown.Now I think that the whole thing is fried!!
