Can't plug it in!

Hi all. I am looking for some suggestions on how to fix an outlet issue. We have a 2005 Solaris. We were preparing to stay the night, and discovered our outlets were not working. The microwave also seems to be out. All the lights work, as well as the fridge, water pump, and fan in the bathroom. We went through the fuses and circuit breakers. All the fuses seem not to blown, and we reset all the breakers. Still nothing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks very much.

Kathi

Hi Kathi. The first thing to check is the pedestal that you are plugged into. Make sure the breakers are turned on. If so ask the campground to check and see if the outlet has power. All your 12 volt things are most likely running off battery.

That was my first thought but then remembered that the microwave was not working also and that is on its own breaker.



































That was my first thought but with the microwave not working it sounds no power to trl. Microwave is on its own breaker.

Check the breaker on the campgrounds electric box. It may be turned off. That has happened to us before. Our lights were running off the batteries.

That's a good thought. Most of the time when I plug in at a campground the breakers are off at the post. Seems like allot of campers kill all the breakers before they unplug when leaving.

Some panel boxes inside of the campers also have a main breaker (30 amp)

Thank you, all for your suggestions! It did end up being a thrown breaker, just not where we expected it to be. We are all set, and up and running! Thanks, again!

Good morning. I'm a bit embarrassed to say where we found the blown circuit breaker, but here it goes. We have had our camper parked at my parents home. We bought it late last summer in a private sale. We have thus far towed it about a mile. Anyway, the camper is hooked up to the power from my parents home, and the breaker was in the box in the barn. The power goes from the house to the barn, then to the garage, which is where the power cord is plugged in. It took us quite a bit to discover the thrown breaker because we didn't know that there was a second breaker box involved, having checked the house first. We are planning on our first big haul at the end of July. We will venture out from New York to Maine. I'm excited, but also very nervous, having never traveled that far pulling a camper this big. It should be an adventure! Thanks, again, for all the help!

Kathi

I ran into something similar at a friend of mine's house he inherited from his uncle. There were two panels in the basement and both were unlabeled. We were working our way through the house marking out circuits and we ended up with all the breakers off and the freezer in the kitchen and the window air conditioner in the living room still running!!!

I went out to the meter can to see if I could find a service cable headed somewhere other than the two panels we had. I noticed that the meter can was double the normal size and one side was a door!! Opened it up to find a panel containing four 2-pole breakers, one for each panel, and one for the freezer and one for the A/C!!!

Kathi - I'm going to hi-jack the thread for a minute - but just noticed you are located in New York = see the two M&G in NY in September - one is in Rochester and the other is in Old Forge.

Perhaps you can make one of them.....would love to meet a new member!

No doubt all of us were nervous the first time pulling a trailer. With time, it DOES get easier. Take it easy and hope you enjoy your trip(s).
