No 110 power when I plug in

Everything was fine, unplugged to fill up and got back and when I pluggged in won't kick on to 110. I did notice when I unplugged I had to wiggle the plug and got 3 clunk clunk clunk's. Not the normal 1 clunk when I plug in or unplug. Did I screw something up?

All good. Plugged my surge protector in and worked. But I had been running it without it. What happened?

If you're plugging in to a pedestal, I always flip the circuit breaker(s) off for the outlet before inserting or removing plug. No arcing or burning of the plug that way. If you heard noises as you unplugged, it could just be intermittent contact due to wiggling the plug, or it could mean a loose connection or prong in the plug itself.

Always use your surge protector to prove one way or another if there is a problem with pedestal.
Technical tips.

Is there a surge protector on Bay Stars? I have not seen one and would not know where to look. Mine makes a thump noise when I plug & unplug also.

That clunk is your automatic transfer switch (ATS) connecting.

There is no surge protector on the Baystar. I had the dealer install the Progressive Industries 50 amp on mine.

To this point, my brother has a DS and uses the portable style Surge Protector, however, last year he decided to not use it and really damaged his coach...like $7000 worth of damage. Now most was covered by insurance, but he could barely get the coach drivable to make the trip home.

Dan,
Thanks for the tip. Never used a surge protector on my previous coach. Only reason have used a portable one now is that bought the coach with all the contents. I am now a convert, will ALWAYS use my surge protector!

I would hope it's more than a surge protector. A surge protector only protects against sudden spikes in voltage. An EMS (electric management system) stops electricity entering the RV if the pedestal is improperly wired, low or high voltage, (<104v, >134v) wrong AC frequency ( -+ 9 hertz) a time delay in case of power interruption, and more.

Just like many other aspects of life today, the power demands of modern RVs has outstripped the wiring of many campgrounds. Problem with weak or slow wifi is inconvenient, but incorrect power can fry your systems.

I also had a Progressive Industries 50 amp installed and it has saved me a number of times.

Bob,
Have to check brand but it's big, saw one at local RV dealership for $400.00 so I know it's not cheap. It has a delay for a minute or two before you get a red power light that says you are good to go. I will check out the parameters of the unit.
