Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

From what you have described here this sounds like a possible fault with the circuit breaker panel itself.I have seen some of these fail internally needing replaced.Some come with the inverter built into it.You may have received a voltage surge through it being plugged into shore power and caused this fault here.I know the RV centers always stress purchasing a surge protector for the RV's so this doesnt happen.But this sounds like what may have occurred here.
