Hi all, looking for help with a strange proble. We are on 50 amp shore power and run great all day but for the last 4 night we experience the power shutting off and coming back on repeatedly then shutting off until day break when it comes back on and stays on all day without interruption. No breakers are tripped. Electrician came to the park and tested meter base and said it was good, volts showed 235 and we were pulling 12 amps. Any thoughts or advise would be appreciated.

Anyone else nearby having the same problem?

No which is why the park thinks it's our rv. But why would we run all day with no problems?

Don't have a clue, but I would consider moving to another site and see how it goes...
For the 12 amps, what is running? Is the power management system seeing something that makes it shut down, reset, then down again?

We really thought it was the park but now we again have no power and that has never happened during the day. The 12 amps is what we were pulling during the heat of the day when the electrician came to check out the meter base.

I would find a replacement main breaker and try that for results.
12 amps seems low to me for AC use, especially if you have 2.
Also, check when power is off to see if you have any power to the main breaker, but none out...
If the main breaker doesn't have power, it is something between the pedestal and the breaker--the surge protector/power managementsystem?
