A problem with the 2 electrical outlets located near the bed and sink has just arisen. These 2 outlets have no electricity coming to them. Both of them previously worked. The outlet (with the GFI) located by the heater vent and fuse area is working great. I have reset the GFI several times but it did not solve the problem.

I have no idea what happened as the outlets previously worked perfectly. Before I haul it to the dealer 20 miles away, I thought I would see if anyone else had that experience. I know it is under warranty but would rather troubleshoot at home vs the journey to the dealer. THANKS
Check by your bathroom sink for another GFI. It is probably the closest GFI to your bedroom and it sounds like it is tripped.

I had a hair dryer incident in my Pheonix. It fried the gfi. I had to replace the one in the bathroom.

The OPs camper does not have a bathroom nor was a bathroom even an option. Ergo no GFI to reset or replace in the bathroom.

Ok, so much for that idea.

as a former fr tech - seen bad connections a few times in models as big as a lodge and small as a HW a frame, go to last outlet with power and chase the wires down. all you can do

People often pay no attention to which section or sub-forum the OP starts the thread.
Therefore the OP often get suggestions that have no bearing on the type of RV they have.

I understand. But it seems reasonable to point out that the well meaning advice is not applicable. Particularly with new forum members like the OP.

Most RV's use a speed box outlet which is even worse than using the quick connect on a regular receptacle , check all your outlets on that circuit . Speed boxes just push the wire into a brass " V" and if they don't get it all the way pushed down it can work loose and you lose the power to the box.

I have a Solaire 163x that the GFI fried after my daughter used her 1800 watt hairdryer. Had to replace the GFI which feeds all the power to the other outlets.
