Default Coach went dead after disconnected from power!?

when I disconnected from the power pole, everything in our coach went dead! The main battery is fully charged, so that is not it. The only way the coach has power, is we have to be connected to the power pole. This includes fridge, etc.

Any and all thoughts would be appreciated!!

If you have dissconnected the main power source and the coach is not running go to the bay where your inverter is and there should be a small black panel box connected to the inverter. should be a button there inverter on/off click to on.

Novice Traveler: Question: what vintage coach do you have? When you say all the power is off is that just 120VAC or is it also 12VDC or is it both? Do you have an inverter?

Sounds to me like a main breaker has tripped and needs to be reset.

Agreed If the Battery Switches are in the ON Position check for a Circuit Breaker or Fuse.

the solenoid or switch over mechanism for battery vs 120v supplied 12v could be your culprit.
