Electrical question

New to me coach. Cant seem to figure out the electrical. Im plugged into a 30 amp. I have mo 120v in any of the recepticals except in th bed slide. I have no tripped breakers that I can find.

When I plug in do I have to turn the inverter off or something?

this is a learning process for sure

Might be something as simple as a GFCI being tripped. Most wall outlets are daisy-chained downstream from a GFCI. Should that trip, all other outlets will be dead. Check your bathroom and kitchen for a tripped GFCI.

I was plugged into 50 amp one time and the breaker on the inverter tripped. It was very hard to find. Outside and I had to feel behind the inverter. I did not know the inverter would cause this problem while plugged up. Maybe I had the inverter on and did not know it.

The inverter should be off while plugged into shore power.

The4js, on your 39K all your 110V breakers will be in the panel at the foot of the bed. Did you try turning them off and back on one by one? I just checked the GFCI in our 39K bathroom and it only controls that outlet. If you have the info on the Dimensions inverter, it might give you a clue. There is a 30A breaker on the front of the inverter. Hope this helps.
