2017 sunset trail no power

So I think I messed up. I wired an extension to plug into my compressor outlet in my garage to be able to run the camper fully on shore power. Once I plugged the cord into the outlet, I herd a thump, that sounded like it came from under the camper. Of course, no power to anything except the tv! I have checked the breakers , fuses and also checked the fuses in the inverter. All good. What am I missing.

Side note...right before I tried the new (made) cord, the shore power worked fine on just the 110 adapter. What did I do?

Is your compressor 110 or 220 volts?

You probably put 240volts into your trailer. Any thing 120v in the trailer that was on is toast. Microwave invertor etc
