2300 electric issues

The ground vault switch at the sink didn't work. The dealer fixed it said it was a loose wire. Now that we have left on a 4 week trip iit is not working again. I think I Might have a problem with the plug In above the sink too. Had the coffee pot and also a kindle plugged in this am and it would come on an off. It finally worked. Had turned ac off. I thought maybe it was just drawing too much electric at a time. Any ideas?

sounds like you may have loose wires on the additional outlet... I would also check the GFI again to see if in fact they did get the wires tight. I hope this helps, a good place to start anyway.

GFCI outlets are cheap, avail in Lowes or HD or hardware stores. Measure and match the narrow depth units used in RV's. If intermittent its usually the outlet.

Now the plug in above the sink doesn't work at all. No thrown breakers. Can't see any bad fuses. The one above the sink is not a ground fault switch. Could they still be on the same line?

That is an indication of a loose connection. Heavy loads heat up a weak connection and it can open... If you are lucky. It can also build too much heat and cause a fire.
