    Intermittent power 2015 Solitude FL

    Woke this morning to no power in bedroom, outlet under cupboard in kitchen and outlets on TV stand on entertainment center. Then came back on and now its hit and miss. Connection is good and it is -17 degrees outside. Saw other posts as possible 50A on parks side but wanted some more input. Ideas or is that more than likely the issue.

    If it's only happening on some outlets and appliances and not others, it does sound like it's one side of the 50 amp mains. One would have to put a voltmeter on the power pedestal outside to prove that it's on the park side (likely). We had this happen once a couple of years ago. It was intermittent and even the electrician the park called out couldn't prove it was the 50 amp breaker. When he replaced the breaker on the pedestal, the problem went away.

    Where are you at -17 (I assume Fahrenheit)?

    We are in Casper Wyoming. Have a surge protector on the main and its showing adequate but also noticed the outside outlets are not working either. Will do some checking more on the main and call the park. Thank you!

    Surge protector or EMS (electrical management system)? Just a surge protector may not tell you a lot. An EMS will throw an error code.

    It is an ems. It will show a code and right now shows adequate but as you said it may show that as even an electrician may not see the 50amp. Husband has contacted the park and was told.ya some need replaced so maybe with the cold and snow it is putting stress on it as we have never had an issue before now.

    Will your EMS show a code for a previous error? Our Progressive Industries will. So I can see if something failed but is now OK. If your does, and all is good (no errors), you might want to also check your GFI. On our trailer, the GFI master outlet is in the bathroom and some of the kitchen and all outside (and a few other) outlets are controlled by the one master GFI outlet. If the GFI trips, it should stay tripped. but if it is a poor connection it may come and go. Just a (wild) thought.
