Shore Power master fuse?

Got back from Oregon Gathering, went out to turn on the elect.fridge to get it cold for the next outing. Power cord from house is ok, breakers are ok in 2006 Scamp 16' but no joy!!

There is no power to the trailer from the 30amp cord into the converter box.

It was a rough ride down from Oregon - took Hwy 1 to Bodega Bay.

Any suggestions?

Not sure what converter you have but mine has a number of fuses hidden inside of it. Had to unscrew the top off of it to find them.

Are you plugged into a GFI outlet that might have tripped? Raz

Are you saying you checked for voltage at the 30a cord entry into the converter? If no voltage is there you have a cord or cord receptacle problem. If you have a voltage tick tool (makes noise when voltage is present) You can follow the voltage into the trailer and down the line. It won't tell you if the neutral is open though.
