Electrical outlet stopped working

Hello, I have a 2008 Georgetown 340 motor home. Does anyone know how many outlets are connected to the ground fault? The kitchen outlet stopped working, but the bathroom one and the outside one still work. Any suggestions?

Usually there are 4 outlets on each GFCI. You probably have two GFCI's in your rig. Find the offending one and press the button.

only 3

I've only found 3 with 1 circuit breaker. The GFI is in the bathroom. There is an outlet outside which is controlled by the GFI. there is 1 other outlet in the kitchen which stopped working and that's where the wire ends.

Reset the GFCI and check all the outlets for power. Then push the GFCI test button (don't reset) and recheck all the outlets. Any that worked before and don't work now are protected by the GFCI.

Thanks. I realize that but I'm trying to find out why this one stopped working so I can fix it.

It wasn't clear from your original post exactly WHICH outlets your're talking about and which ones, if any, are GFCI outlets. On my Roo, the GFCI is built into the breaker, not the outlet. You might want to check your breakers.

You may have a defective GFCI. Is the GFCI outlet one of the ones that's not working? When you press the test and reset buttons does it "click"?

I had the same problem I had power to the mw and ac but no power to the outlets. I took off the breaker box cover off and the wire to the gfi was hot and loose I tighten it back up and I had power good luck let me know if the was the problem
