29KSWS Circuitry

Please forgive my inexperience.



I'm curious if anyone knows the circuitry of the Forest River Flagstaff 29KSWS?



Where experiencing some pretty cold weather here in central TX and when attempting to use two space heaters (one is 1350W, the other 1500W) we trip the 15AMP breaker that's labelled GFI/Refer | Water Heater.



Now the head-scratcher is that when we turn off that breaker and attempt to plug one of the heaters into EVERY SINGLE OUTLET in the RV, none of them will power the heater. So, it appears that in spite of having a 50AMP hookup we're not able to run both heaters at the same time as EVERY OUTLET appears to be on the SAME circuit.



Can anyone confirm this with reasonable certainty?

You confirmed it yourself. Having 50 amps does not mean they split the 110v receptacle. Its much faster and cheaper to daisy chain with one GFI for protection. My rig had the same problem until I split the circuits and added breakers to prevent what you are experiencing.

Thank you, @SeaDog for confirming my suspicions. Unfortunately, breaking up the circuit isn't going to happen before we hit 28-degrees come morning.



This wouldn't be such an issue if it weren't for the fact that our gas heater circuit board has gone out for the 2nd time since we bought this new unit in Oct. The closest authorised service company can't get to us for a week.
