Outlets (and everything) dead?

I blew it, pun not intended. I plugged into shore power and then flipped the circuit breakers on. Turns out we had a small electric fan plugged into one of the outlets in the on position. It cut on weakly for a few seconds and then cut off completely. Now Iíve got no power at any of the outlets. I replaced all the fuses but still no luck. Any thoughts on what I could have messed up?

A 120v electric fan plugged in wouldn’t cause any issue when not connected to shore power as the 120v outlets are generally powered from shore power. Does the camper have outlets powered by an inverter that draws power from the 12v batteries ? What model camper ?

It’s a Jay Sport 10SD. The inverter will come on when I flip the breakers for a few seconds and then just peters out. The outlets all are GFI protected they say but no buttons in the middle to reset. Not sure what I’ve done.

Problem solved. I found an outlet under the bench seating I didn’t know existed and the GFI reset was there. All good! Thank you for the quick reply!!

There will be one GFI breaker or GFI outlet that all other GFI protected outlets draw from. Standard equipment would be a converter which takes 120v power and converts to 12v to power lights, fans and charge the battery(s). Has an inverter been added to the electrical system? An inverter takes 12v from the battery(s) and converts to 120v to power TV and microwave. How’s the battery? There’s a fuse at the battery That needs to be checked.

Started before and posted after your discovery.
