Coachmen Catalina Outlets Not Working

I just bought a 2000 Coachmen Catalina M334-MBS. On the way home, we used the microwave, and it worked for about 30 seconds, and shut down. Now, none of the outlets or rear air are working. We have checked all the fuses that we know of, checked all breakers, everything has checked out good. Any advice?

Additional note: This is my first RV, so I totally new to this ballgame.

Look for the inverter and some breakers on it. Could be push button or lever type.

The inverter should be near the battery area.

Its not common for an AC to be on an inverter but who knows what previous owners do.

Agree.

That begs a question. When you used the microwave, were you plugged into power at a campground? And were you plugged into the proper supply of power? (vs being plugged into a 110 at home or something like that.)

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Your inverter is probably not big enough to run the microwave. You will most likely find the breakers on the inverter are tripped.


Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

We were actually going down the road, so we weren't plugged into any sort of power supply

Check the ground fault outlets if you have any. In most MH;s if the ground fault trips it shuts off a lot of plug ins
