Electrical problem on 377RLBH

I have a 377RLBH in Ireland and am having trouble with the electrics.

We have different termonology here in the UK/Ireland than you do in the US so I hope you understand.

All the 12V is working but nothing from the shore power. The dealer I use is in the UK so I'm waiting to here from him but in the meantime I hope someone here may be able to help.

When the power went off we had the electric heat pump and water heater on, then the microwave. About 20 seconds after the microwave went on the power stopped.

We've checked all the breakers and fuses in the cabinet by the door but all seem to be well. One of the electricians here had a quick look and thinks the probelm may be the socket where the shore power connects, they can get power on the shore side but not on the coach end. (The are testing the inside of the socket with the cable connected). The cannot change the socket as we have a different system in Ireland with 32A three wire cables and the US cable has 4 wires, they are unsure what wire goes where).

Other than the circuit breakers by the door, are there any other fuses/switches that could be causing this?

Thanks


Mark.

did you check the breakers for the shore power? I know I have tripped the campgrounds' breakers on many an occasion.

oops sorry, I re-read your post and you did mention that you already tested the shore side.

This happened to me last summer. As I inspected all the breakers, it looked like all were not tripped. However, I did open and close each breaker one by one and found the one that actually tripped, which solved the problem.

Good luck!

Yep, they may look good, but until you turn them off and back on you can't be sure.

Heat pump, water heater and micro and 20 seconds to failure. It sounds like a breaker. Meeker has a good suggestion, open and close all the breakers. After the breakers I'd suspect a burned wire. Check for power at the electrical pannel with a VOM.

Could also be worth checking the GFCI outlet to be sure it isn't tripped. The outlets are generally wired in series, so nothing beyond the GFCI will work if it's been tripped

Correct me if I'm wrong... But isn't standard UK voltage 230v 50hz?
I would suspect you would fry everything in your trailer if you had managed to McGyver a plug to go from a US 50amp RV cord to a UK 32amp socket.

More detail of what you did is needed

Thanks for the input. We've tried this already, each trip has been opened and closed a few times now by different people.

This sounds good. I'm not sure what the GFCI is or where it's located, could you help with the location please.

The electrician may already have checked this but I'd like to be sure.

Thanks.
