Electric power loss

2013 Meridian 42E, I have it plugged into a 30 amp outlet in my storage area.
Nothing running except radio and refrigerator once I get the power on signal on my PowerLine system. Within 10 seconds the power shuts off. Something tripping it Iím guessing but what???

We had a power outage in the storage area a few day ago could that be part of it?

A little more info; "something tripping it". What is "it" and what is "tripping". Is it a circuit breaker tripping for is it a GFCI tripping.

A delayed trip, can come from a heavy load 31 amp may take a little time to trip a 30A breaker. A little moisture will trip a GFCI, my last one took about 20 seconds when an extension cord had gotten wet in the rain.

Is this a shared 30A circuit? Continuous amp draw on a 30A circuit is 28A max. Your powerline may see that and disconnect to protect your RV.
