If you've got power at the pedestal, then the incoming lines feed into the ATS (automatic transfer switch). In mine, those wires came loose from the connectors. I lost power after a lot of arcing, smoke and smell.


Pop the cover of the ATS and take a peek

First off the solar panel would have nothing to do with loss of 120 volt power. Solar is part of the 12 volt system.

If you are connected to a pedestal at a park, I would check the breakers in the pedestal. Try cycling them. It is also possible that there is no power in the pedestal. If you have a generator try running it to see if you have 120 volts.

Will be hard to troubleshoot without a voltmeter.

I have a 2018 GreyHawk. Was on my way to Florida 2-weeks ago from Maine when the transfer switch burnt up at 3am in the morning. The transfer switch is located under the master bed in what looks like a "bowl of spagetti wires" ... luckily no fire. The manufacturer of the transfer switch stated that the terminal point of the connected wire was not properly torqued. Thank you Jayco ... so far your quality control has cost me over $10,000 with all the other problems I had with this RV.

Same thing happened to me.
Smelled it - thankfully no fire.
