When you hook up to 240 volts it can be very damaging to the appliances. IF the outlet for the fridge and microwave have power then you could have a blown fuse on each.

The microwave should have an internal fuse and many times you have to drop the microwave out of the enclosure to get at it.

On the fridge under the outside access panel you will have a circuit board, on the circuit board will be a DC and AC fuse need to make sure that they do not blow.

The Roof AC also might have a fuse on the control board inside the AC unit depending on the make and model.

If the fuses are good it is possible the circuit boards in each appliance are bad, they do not handle voltage change like that very well. Make sure the outlets have power and then troubleshoot each appliance.

IF you need more help please let me know, I am around daily and respond WHEN I can, I do work as a RV tech during the day....

Robert

Also if the outlet for the fridge has power make sure you unplug it before removing the cover for the board, you do not want to touch the AC fuse when it is plugged in....

The roof AC and fridge need DC voltage to turn ON and then they use AC voltage.
