No power

Zinger zt-250-rks was plugged in at the house. Battery overheated and exploded in pieces all over the yard.

Battery replaced but still no power.

All fuses looked good. Replaced them anyway with no change.

Breakers have not been tripped but have been turned on/off several times for grins at this point.

2 cgfi outlets in the camper and the reset buttons have been depressed multiple times.

Tried plugging the camper back in via the electrical outlet but no power in the camper.


I am getting power to the power jack.

What am I obviously missing?

TIA
Brandi

I'm confused by your post. GFCIs and circuit breakers are talking about 120VAC power. Blown/replaced batteries and fuses are talking about 12VDC power.
The common area to both voltages is the converter. You obviously had something drastic going on to blow up the battery. The converter receives the shore power, distributes it as 120VAC through circuit breakers, and also uses it to convert to 12VDC to run operations and charge the battery. If you have lost everything, the converter is the place to look.

Have you checked to see if the outlet you plugged the trailer into has power?
Maybe all of that tripped the breaker for that receptacle.

I have been chasing all kinds of rabbit holes to see if there were multiple variables at play.

I can't find any diagrams showing where the converter is housed in my model.

Converter is in the same box/panel as the circuit breakers, a box close to the shore power input.

Deereb,
So what did you ultimately find?
