1999 National Tradewinds electrical outlet problem

I have a Tradewinds that has lost power on 6 outlets on the right side of the coach. I'm currently at a camp site that only 30 amp service available. My rear air conditioner is functioning, but the front a/c will not operate independently. However the front a/c will work with my propane generator. I checked the main circuit breaker all seem to be in the on position. I did switch each breaker off then on again without resolution to the problem. Can anyone advise? Thanks

Did you check the breakers on the inverter as it is a feed thru system?
Also did you check all of the GFI plugs to be sure none were tripped?

I have had the same problem and yes it was a breaker on the inverter. Reset and all was ok.

X2 on the inverter breaker. Threw me for a loop for a little while until I figured it out.

Does your RV have 50 amp service? It could be the 50 to 30 amp adaptor you are using to plug into the 30 amp pedestal is only letting power through on one leg of the 50 amp cord.

Thanks to everyone I found the 50 Amp power cord had a loose connection on the red wire. Repairing it fixed the problem .
