If you have "all dc power" are you talking about 120v shore cord power? Have you checked for power from the outlet or pedestal? (turn breaker off, then on again to reset) Next check the main breaker in your power panel. If that's O.K., then check that the shore cord has a good plug and try it in another outlet. If you have a generator, make sure the transfer switch is connecting when connected to shore power. It should make a loud 'clunk' as the solenoid closes.

It would help if you go to 'User CP' and fill in RV details in your signature so we know what type of RV you have.

AS suggested above^^^^


Check 120V AC Power source circuit breakers (power pedestal)

Then check RV AC Power Panel circuit breakers




Follow the AC Power from source thru power cord to RV AC Panel

Next step is to trace the power in your shore cord. A bad plug or connection in your breaker panel if you don't have a transfer switch or EMS that could interrupt electrical flow.

If you have a pop up, I used to have minor issues where the bunk hits a switch to allow power. Sometimes the bunk would not fully depress the switch or if someone moved around alot the power would flicker

Had this happen this last weekend on our first outing with our newly purchased hybrid. AC/DC converter was loose and bouncing around and white wire came loose from shoreline hookup. Got it all secured and viola, power. Lost power a couple hours later and frantically checked it all over again only to find out whole camp area was out! What a relief!
