Microwave blew out a circuit

My fireplace and microwave our now both off after I turned on the microwave lat night. It ran about 2 seconds and shut off.
Anyone know why that would happen besides the obvious circuit overload? Also, the manual doesn't show me where the breakers are to reset. Does anyone know?
I have a seismic 4212. Thanks.

Most logic is where your power converter is. Unless they put a separate panel in the bigger units. There might be a fault in the microwave? You have to find out after you reset the breaker.

Some rigs had a switch, not Jayco, that allowed you to select one or the other. Both could not be run at the same time. Both likely overloaded your breaker if the heater was already on.
Someone should be able to post the panel location.

I found the panel but nothing is tripped. Also, now there is a beeping noise and my batteries are running down I think.

Sounds like breaker on the post feeding your RV tripped. Your battery is running down because your converter is no longer charging your battery.

Sounds like the shore power post breaker is popped. We have done this a few times when running the microwave and AC at the same time.
