Question regarding power

I have a 2015 Flying Cloud 25FB. I am currently parked on a beach in Mexico, plugged in with my 30amp cord. After two months all of a sudden I am not getting power in my curbside plug. The blue light does not come on when I am connected, an no power is being delivered into the coach.

The front plug works perfectly fine, and thank god someone here has a three prong extension cord....

At the same time my water pump has died for the second time in six months, the first death was a week out of New Jersey and I took it to the factory for replacement.

As an aside, my meter has indicated 13.7 amps all along until the power stopped, and continues to do so with power in the front plug.

Any ideas or comments?

There are lots of posts about failed transfer switches so that one of the shorepower inlets is not connected and it will not switch back to the one with power applied. That transfer switch is under the bed just behind your converter.
You did not say whether the cord blue light is on when you are plugged into the operating inlet but those blue lights fail also. My blue light on the cord is dead but the cord functions just fine.

My blue light does not come on. Where is the transfer switch and can I manually get it to work or do I have to have it replaced?

Thanks for the response....

I have never heard of anyone repairing it, but it is just a relay so I suppose banging on it might work for a bit. As I said, on my 25 FB it is under the bed just forward of the converter. I carry a spare for the day that mine fails.

There is an active recall for the 30amp plugs on 2014-15 FC. Has yours been checked? repaired or replaced?

"Camped on a beach in Mexico."

Sounds like you are experiencing a real hardship!

My recommendation is to use plenty of ice to keep the cervezas frķas until you can return to the U.S.
