Having breakfast this morning and listening to the TV and the TV suddenly turns off. Power lost in both outlets behind the TV. Also, the outlet under the microwave has no power. I believe the refrigerator has lost it's 110V power. No breakers tripped, no fuses popped. 12V system (lights) seems to be working. I am an industrial electrician so if I had a schematic, I should be able to troubleshoot the problem in short order. Anyone know how to get these schematics? 2010 Cruiser 30 SKP (50 AMP).

Since all the items you are having problems with are in the slide-out, I would check the junction box and wire loom under the slide-out for an open circuit on the 110 v line even though the 12 v DC line is OK. These wires and joints see a lot more movement than the rest of the wire run from the breaker box or within the slide-out unit.

There's another area that you should check. Very likely the GFCI has tripped and if it did, then you may have water in the junction boxes under the slide. I had the exactly the same issue two weeks ago. I opened the boxes and found that they were full of water. I drained the water, dried the boxes and repaired the connections.
That solved the problem for me.Edited by: Hamops

Problem solved. I got the camper back from the repair shop where they were repairing damage from a blowout. Crawled under the slide and opened the upper junction box mounted to the frame. The wire nut for the black wire fell out on the ground. When will supposedly intelligent people learn that when connecting a stranded wire to a solid wire, a wire nut will not stay tight, period! Some form of crimped connector or screw terminal MUST be used. Well, it is right now, and I guess that I have another winter project (to open each of these boxes and install a quality connector).

Glad you found the problem.
As to schematics, I have never found one available for any trailer I have owned.
That's four (so far). All different brands.
