2 outlets not working

We just purchased a 2015 sabre 34tbok. When we got home with it and when we started setting up we noticed that one outlet in the bunk room (where the tv would go) does not work and the other outlet is outside for the fridge. The 2 outlets located next to each if that helps to know. Is there something we can do to fix this without having to bring back to dealership?

Welcome to the Sabre family. Did the outlets work/did you check them during the PDI? Seeing as they are next to each other they might be on the same circuit. Did you check the fuses?

We didn't think to check outlets before we left and we did check all the fuses that would be associated with that area and they were fine.

Look around and see if any of the outlets in the area have a tripped GFI. Also, make sure you've got a solid power feed to your trailer. I had something similar happen where I wasn't getting a good connection on one leg and some of my outlets didn't work. I reseated each of the connection points from the house to the trailer and that fixed the issue. Good luck tracking yours down.

Thanks for the suggestions. Didn't think about the main power feed. Had to use 50-30 amp adapter at main outlet which was a tight fit.

Could be a bad 50 to 30amp adapter too.

I'm sure they'll find it. Post up the fix when you find out what it is.

Is the 30 amp 110 volt plug? Will have 2 blades and 1 round for ground. (1hot, 1 nutural, and 1 ground) If so you are not feeding but half of the breakers in the unit as the 50 is 220 volt outlet. (2 hots, 1 nutural, and 1 ground)
