Monaco - loss of outlet power when plugged in

Have a 2007 Monaco Knight 38PDQ. Plugged into campground - power fine going into coach. Watching TV, all power to front of coach went out. Back circuit breaker all ok-back bedroom, Ref, water heater etc. Cannot find any breaker that would have been tripped. no power to any ac outlet from the bathroom area to the front. If we turn on inverter all ok. Don't want to run down the batteries because they are not being charged. HELP!!!

Inverter breaker?

I had the same issue on my 2006 Knight earlier this year and found it to be one of the breakers on the inverter in the back bay. May be it, may not, but something to check. Hope you get it figured out.

If you have a GCIF outlet anywhere in the RV check that first and make sure it's not tripped. Mine has done it twice now in 2 years. Our GCIF is in a storage bay. Hope this helps.

Agree with the inverter/charger breaker. It will be on the inverter/charger unit itself. Some are little round push buttons and some are switchs.

If all works with the inverter, its not a GFCI.

Why are the batteries not being charged? This is probably the problem as the power for the inverter outlets receive shore power from the same circuit as the battery charger for the house batteries.

There is a breaker in the mail panel in the RV, and there is a second breaker at the inverter/charger as well. On the inverter, pull out each breaker, and press it back in--don't just press in to reset (pull out fully, then back in every time.)
