    Came back to the dock yesterday with the genny running and all AC circuits running fine. After tying up in the slip I plugged in my single 30a shore power cord and turned the breaker on the main panel over from generator to shore power. Dead. No voltage at the panel. Switched back to generator everything lights up. I checked the breaker on the pedestal its on. The red light on the end of the shore power cord is lit up so there seems to be power to where the cord connects to the boat. Is there another breaker somewhere on the boat I am missing?

    I had a similar issue. I removed the plut and found that one of the wires was just sitting there and had worked loose from the plug. 5 minutes and it was fixed. There is a breaker next to the plug, is that one OK?

    What about the breaker in the transom locker right beside where your cord plugs in?

    Mine was similar, but plug was not fully twisted and seated. Turned power off at pedestal, reseated both ends, powered up, verified blue LED lights are on, and everything was good. My 30a cable will show red lights if not properly seated or polarity reversed.

    Thanks for the help. It was the breaker tripped on the transom. I was dealing with a clogged head overflowing when I was backing in and was distracted.
