RE: Electrical issue on 50amp service

thank you all for your suggestions. It took me a bit to reply as I got off work finally this morning but we did find the issue. After checking all breakers, all connections, trouble shooting the inverter and separately testing each power cord and even hooking up to a generator the simple issue was a loose N and one of the Hot legs was also loose in the receiving plug on the exterior wall of the rv. ridiculous. Thanks again for all your input, helped me believe I was on the right track. Until next time, Dre

RE: Electrical issue on 50amp service

Home. On a subpanel. I've checked the main panel and the sub and haven't found any issues or popped breakers there. When you say sub panel, what do you mean? The most common method for plugging in at home is a dogbone to plug into a 20 A outlet. Do you have an inverter? Most newer RV's have an inverter that controls the outlets. By subpanel I mean that the panel we are plugged into is controlled by another breaker on the opposite side of the wall. Not my preference but I did not wire that as we are staying at a friend's place. Its seemingly correctly wired, we've been living in it for 2.5 months now without any issue. I do have an inverter and have had that set so the 120v is passing through it as it should. Thanks

RE: Electrical issue on 50amp service

Thanks Doug, I said home to make it easy. We are staying at a friends home and have been for 2.5 months now. No issues what so ever until just a few nights ago. Which makes me think that its not a problem at the source. I can clarify that on the power cord I've got 120v on EACH leg.

Electrical issue on 50amp service

I've got a new fifth wheel on 50 amp service. Recently we have lost power to all of our outlets and both electric fire places. After checking each plug, checking to ensure no breakers are popped, all fuses are intact, and the source is good this is what I've discovered. The power supply cord is supplying 120v on both legs. When plugged into the RV our LED light above plugs shows power. At the breaker panel however, the red leg shows 120v and the black leg shows 70v. which matches the voltage I'm getting at the outlets. This is BEFORE it even reaches the breaker. I am assuming that the issue is in the inlet plug on the wall of the RV. Either a loose wire or it just needs to be replaced. I'll be opening it up tomorrow to take a look and replace it. Any other ideas, something I might be missing? Thanks -Dre
