it was the breakers in the RV.. I am thinking the main was tripped too... Working great now. I just replaced all the overheads with LED bulbs to help with amp draw when I'm boondocking... Had the bulbs at home already from another project.

Yep you had it right. Instead of visually inspecting the breakers the first time, I should have flipped them off and back on, and this whole post would have been unnecessary.

Breaker Trip Indication

There are a number of circuit breaker types that do not readily indicate whether they've tripped or not. My 1998 Bigfoot has an Atwood converter with what look to be Bryant or Challenger breakers and it's not easy to tell when a breaker has tripped. The only thing that really can be done is to reset the breakers. BTW, most folks don't know it, but the maintenance standards for breakers require that they be reset on at least an annual basis.

Wow, I did not know that. Thank you for letting us know! I will be sure to keep that on my list of maintenance items....

Somewhere in your RV is a panel. It may be black plastic (or White,or anothr cover) likely about the size of a child's lunch box from the 60s (the
"Box shaped" ones not the dome topped worker's type)

It may say WFCO or Parallex or Progressive Dyanamics or just be blank

Behind it should be fuses, and Circuit breakers.
