power failure

we had out out this weekend the nra convention in Nashville and I forgot to take the multi meter just had the plug in circuit tester i do know that i think its breaker 3 that turns off the outlets by the sink and bathroom will have to get it back on shore powe and put the meter on it i know that one of the 15amp breakers says front and one says rear not sure if unit has outlets on 1 0r 2 breakers we were working on it at the storage area running on generator but i think that the generator he was using had polarity issues as nothing was working right when it was on that when we got to koa in nashville and plugged in got good indicators on tester thanks gary

It sounds like your on the right track. I think it is a breaker issue and should be replaced. Good luck and keep us posted.
