no 110v power

Hello, I hope you all can help. I have a 2006 Jay feather 23b, Today I noticed I had no 110 power even though it's plugged into the house, also, I got a mild shock when standing barefoot on the ground and touching the door frame. Assuming it's a ground problem, Where would I begin to look? Also, has anyone ever had a similar issue? I wouldn't think just a broken ground alone would cause complete power loss, Hot skin yes buy not a complete power loss would it?

Yes it can, it may be where your hooked up to, has a problem with the neutral. Reversed polarity..open ground etc. turn the power off and have it checked.

Find another source of power and see if everything works. If so I would check the 110 house for an open ground. as wags999 said. If you are using an adaptor you may also have a bad adaptor. If you are using the tt power cord remember the outlet must be a rec. vehicle type outlet.
Good luck

Go to your local hardware store an buy an outlet tester. It will tell you if the outlet you are going to plug into is properly wired. I use mine with a 30 amp to 15 amp plug adapter to check every receptacle that I intend top plug my trailer power cord into before I plug in. It the tester doesn't say the outlet is correctly wired, I don't plug in. I also carry a volt meter and check the voltage before I use a power supply.

Here is a video on how to verify various power sources are good. Get any voltmeter and learn how to use it. Be careful, that tingle you fell can be lethal!

I keep a plug in voltmeter inside and one of these plugged into my outside utility panel at all times.

Thank you all, Upon further inspection during the daytime, I found the extension cord (regular) plug AND 30 Amp adapter to be burned up pretty good. I thought I would be fine hooked up to the house and have been for months, I suspect my teen kids have been using the Air conditioner and possibly the fridge at times though. I leave the camper unlocked because I frequently move things in and out and clean between trips....
Having found this issue I realize this practice is bad however isn't there a way to stay hooked up at home and use the Air when I'm inside cleaning, repairing or upgrading things without burning up cords? If not, no big deal I'll just stay plugged in to maintain my battery and work in the heat.

Have a electrician wire a 30a receptacle properly equipped near the rig.

Also don't let the kids have free rein.
