Help! Power issues

New owners to a 2015 Jayflight 32IBTS. This TT is set up and connected to power 24/7. When we leave we bring in the awning and the slides in just in case of bad weather while we are away. (we are in Florida near the coast)

Today upon arriving all seemed to be well. Electric was on, Fridge was using electric. Main AC was running. When I pushed the switch to let the Awning out there was a pop. Now the main AC is off. The slides will not go out. The Fridge is using gas. the smaller AC in the bedroom will run but that is it.

Husband has checked breakers and fuses but we are stumped...... Any troubleshooting tips are appreciated.

Being there are 2 AC's then you have a 50A service? If so it sounds like half your electric is out on the panel. Did you throw the main 50A breaker on both the service post and then also in the unit.

Can you plug into another post nearby? Do you have a Fuzion power cord with the blue LEDs? Are they both lit?

A pop is not good and could be several things. If you are still under your first year of ownership I would go with the Coach Net option (should be a white sticker inside a cabinet door to call) or a certified tech to diagnois.

Since the AC in your bedroom works, you've tripped one leg of the incoming AC. Either the breaker in the converter has tripped or the pedestal has tripped. Sometimes when a dual breaker trips (or even a single for that matter), it may not be apparent. You have to reset (turn off and back on) to verify.

Wow, this an odd one.
It sounds like the awning started the problems. The awning is on the 12v side of the house. It is unusual that a 12v fault would affect the AC side of things. The 12v side is protected by fuses and the 110v side by breakers like a house. I've found that tripped breakers are not always obvious. I'd suggest manually closing a breaker for one of the A/C appliances and resetting it to see if it starts.
It sounds like all 12v is off. Do you have a battery? Does it have a charge. You say DH has checked fuses, did he check with a VOM? I think there may be a fuse behind the panel that protects the 12v from the 110v. Someone will probably add more about this.
