Dash lighter-outlet not working

We have a Georgetown 364TS, purchased new in the spring. We plugged a splitter into the dash cigarette-lighter-outlet to power the GPS and a phone charger. It worked great.

Then it stopped working. No power.

I just checked every fuse in the fuse box under the steering column, as well as every fuse in the master bedroom. They are all good.

What else should I check? What else could it be?

Check the engine compartment for a black fuse box.

It's listed as "Cig lighter" or some such in some vehicles.

Are there fuses in the driver's side front storage bay. On my Legacy the fuse was labeled 'Power point' - 20A.

Can you power just the GPS in that power socket? If you can, then check the splitter to see if it has a fuse in its tip.

A lot of the plugs that go into the lighter socket have a fuse built into the end under the spring loaded pin. You can unscrew the end to access it. Not sure from your post but it might be your issue.

I have a Forest River FR3. The fuse for 12V sockets (cigarette lighters) is in-line, under the dash just behind the socket.
