Palomini RDS179 - Electrical outlet problems.

I just got a New palomino RDS179 and only 3 outlets work. (The ones in the Kitchen area and TV)

Does any one know if there is only 1 GFI that runs the whole trailer?

I can only find one.

Have you looked at every receptacle in and out of the RV? Sometimes the one under the awning also connects to some receptacles inside.

check the one in the access door of the fridge. It's odd, but it could also be hooked to others.

You may have to start pulling receptacles out of the wall to see if a wire has come loose from one of them. They're daisy chained together from the controlling GFI.

That is what I was afraid of.

I have two gfci in my flagstaff. One in the kitchen and another in the bathroom. They are usually located near sinks. Have you checked in your bathroom (if yours is equipped with such)?

There is only one GFCI in my 142CK. I would start looking at the connections. When I was adding an outlet for a Blu-ray player the one I connected to barely had the wires in the knife blade connectors. It was only a matter of time before one of the wires would have come out. There are also times where the knife blade doesn't penetrate the insulation. I replaced all of my outlets where I had room to add a box with household screw terminal outlets.

A couple in the campground last week was telling me that he ended having to correct the entire wiring in his Palomino as it was totally screwed up from the factory
Doesn't sound possible but he says it actually happened.

Thanks,
I guess I will have to start at the first box that doesn't work and go from there.
Not going to be fun.

I'd start at the last box that DOES work with the assumption that its OUT line is disconnected.
