2000 fleetwood: southwind..my golf cart charger..trip

Customer Question
I have a 2000 fleetwood...
I have a 2000 fleetwood southwind and there is only one external 110 duplex outlet. I plugged my extension cord for my golf cart charger in and the system shut down, The breaker did not trip in the panel or at the power source. I replaced the outlet but still do not have any power to the outlet. Could the breaker be bad and if so where can I obtain a new one?

Question 2 is there is an intermiten click nois comeing from the area where the inverter is located. I never heard this before. I disconnected the 12 volt batteries but the noise still continues.
