A breaker when tripped, if you try to just hit it back on will feel "soft". You need to click it all the way off, then back on.

As others have suggested, my money in on completely opening the breaker before resetting it. I also have seen several breakers that were tripped but the switch was roughly half way to the "off" side.
I'd turn the main TT breaker off , cycle the pedestal breaker, and then switch the individual breakers off, switch them on and follow by switching the main TT breaker on.
Save the receipt for the newly purchased items.

Probably too late to assist, but a "sea story". In one of my M/H, I had a circuit breaker in a bathroom - somehow connected to the GFCI OUTSIDE! On that outside circuit was connected a motion sensor light. Every time the deer tripped the outside motion detector light, the inside bathroom GFCI would trip. After finally determining what was what, I had an electrician rewire the offending circuits correctly. An odd situation I admit, but even pros make mistakes.

Thanks for all the input! To those of you who suggested a tripped circuit breaker, you were.........CORRECT. Dad says he turned it off and back on and it did nothing for him. That is all I did and it worked fine. It was a double? breaker. It has two small switches on it (about half the size of a normal switch on a breaker) and the lower one was tripped. Everything appears to be working fine now, but it still has a led lit up next to the fuses and the fuse its next too is fine. I did notice its not as bright as the others when they light up, so is it possible that it just indicates that the fuse panel has power? Thanks again for all the help. Now that camping season is over for us (we will be seeing temps in the low 30s by the end of the month) all we need to do is winterize. Thanks again! Dave

I love problems that are resolved, they're the very best kind!
A pic of the panel would help with the led.
