Electrical question

I have an '05 19' Bambi stored for the winter here. I have the power plugged and all the lights work, but when I plug something into an outlet, nothing. Is there a gfi somewhere I'm missing? I've tried the breaker panel. I'm sure it's something pretty basic, and being new at this it wouldn't surprise me. Thanks for any help.

Lights are 12 volt from the converter/battery. You apparently have no 120 volt power. In mine, I would start with the outlet I'm plugged into, then the main breaker, then the breakers on the branch circuits.

Since you have checked the breakers, then it has to be something relatively simple - power cord, maybe? Mine is lots older than yours so there is nothing between the male plug on the power cord and the breaker panel. Does yours have a female plug on the unit itself? Cruddy contacts? Kind of a head scratcher...

When you loose power you start at the source and work your way to the item in question. Take a voltmeter or some other 110 item and check for power at the city connection. If you have power there plug the trailer in and go to the beaker panel and test for power on the input side of the breakers. If there is power there test the output side of each breaker. You do this until you find a spot without power. If you find the spot without power you repair from that point back to the last point you had power. It may be as simple as a popped breaker or a hard as a broken wire in the wall. But there is no simple way to bypass this procedure.

Check the bathroom for a GFCI and reset.

Also if you have a charging inverter the inverter will have circuit breakers on the 120V output.
