After shutting breakers off, unplugging and then plugging the electric back in I turned the breakers back on and everything works fine, again for awhile and then for some reason everything goes out again. Can anyone give me an idea as to what might be causing this?
Almost sounds as if there is a bad connection somewhere in the mains supply from the house outlet to the circuit breaker panel in the camper. The connection is OK for a while and then heats up until the circuit fails and then by the time you reset everything and check, the bad connection has cooled and works oK again. Would expect a bit of dimming and flickering if that was the reason though.
Could you try turning on the circuit breakers one at a time and see if just one circuit is causing the problems.
Also try reducing the 120V load to a minimum and see if it still happens.
Is there an inverter on board and could that be supplying the 120V loads instead of direct from the mains.
