I was running the microwave and it made the GFI pop and now don't have power to a lot of places in the RV, and the fridge is now running on propane.

I checked the fuses . . . all seem to be OK.

Any ideas?

John.......try unplugging from shore power for 5 minutes and then reset GFI. Re plug back into power.

If that doesn't work......buy a new rig......🤠👍

Turned out not to be the GFI, but popped a curcuit in the house!

Thanks!

Funny . . .

That's what I was going to do when I noticed the patio lights were out.

Reset the breaker and the trailer came back on!

Guess I can't use the microwave while I'm plugged in to the garage . . .

Nope. If you’re using an extension cord you’re losing some of your available amperage before it gets to your rig. If anything else is running, the microwave will overpower the available amperage.
