There are no breakers being tripped. I get my power thru the main box in my workshop main panel. The workshop lights are not affected. Any ideas?
1st, you must have a volt meter to work on electric problems. Just looking won't cut it. How many 120 volt lights do you have?
Lights and Microwave will be on separate circuits. You must start at the Shore Power with a meter and work your way back to the RV. Looking for 120 volts to Neutral AND ground. Assuming 30 amp service and no generator here. Take apart the shore power and look there also.
You must take apart EVERY connection in the order I explained. SHORE POWER TO RV BREAKER BOX. Extension cords, everything.
If you have an inverter you must check that also. Check and tighten EVERY connection you come across.
Remove every circuit breaker and look at the contacts. Tighten EVERY screw in the breaker box.
As for the gas furnace fan.
That is 12 volts so you have 2 different electric problems. Now you must go thru the same process as before checking any and all 12 volt connections starting at the battery.
I am very interested in your 120 volt lighting????? I'm assuming you are referring to plug in lamps as I had in my 5th wheel bedroom night stands.
