No AC to AC/DC Propane Refrigerator and AC Outles

New Owner of 2017 JAYCO PINNACLE 38REFS – No AC voltage to Norcold AC/ DC propane refrigerator and lower AC outlets in Kitchen, living room and dinette. AC voltage on Microwave works, electric fireplace in living room, washer, dryer and AC outlets front bedroom. Reset all AC Breakers, but unable put one 15 AMP breaker (Inverter Refer Utility # 2) into on position, it returns to off position. Ground Fault outlet has AC voltage in bath room. All DC fuses are OK and have DC voltage including converter. Unable to locate a inverter. No wiring Diagram. "Help?"

If you have an a/c propane fridge you won't have an inverter. They just use the same breaker in the panel. Sounds like a dead short someplace.

Welcome to the forum.

Totally different trailer, but we had a loose wire INSIDE a receptacle. Like Grumpy said, it caused a dead short that knocked out the breaker for our fridge (on A/C) and other inside and outside receptacles on that same circuit.

Try powering it on an extension cord from outside until you can find out whats wrong with the outlet in the outside fridge compartment.

You may also have lost one leg from the pedestal. Check to make sure if it is a double breaker, both sides got flipped. Happened to me once. Took me a while to figure that one out!

Could also just be a bad breaker. The GE (Garbage Electric) breakers used in our units being the minie's fail often.
