How do I restore power after an amperage overload that disconnected shore power

We have a 2015 Phaeton 40 AH. After an amperage overload, the shore power shut off and I now cannot restore power. Cannot find any breaker trips. Any suggestions?

The first thing is to find out if power is at the pedestal. If there's no power there then no power to your coach. BTW, the Pedestal has circuit breakers.

Turn off your main circuit breaker then turn it back on. Turn off the pedestal breaker then turn it back on. Purchase a multi-meter and learn how to use it.

Thanks for the help. 30 amp works fine, so we tripped the 50 amp pedestal breaker.

Surprised you tripped the park pedestal. If your MH is setup right, it should have shed power draws to prevent overloads. Either that or the park pedestal is faulty or not wired correctly. I would have the park check the pedestal. 50 amp should be 120 on each leg and 240 across.
You don’t mention if you have an EMS system. That would be a good idea.

If only some power didn't return, check the pop out breakers on the inverter, down in the compartment.
