I've replaced the living area 15 amp fuse and it too didn't restore power. I've checked the three 30 amp fuses under the Trailor and they are okay. I removed the outlet in question and my volt meter registers no power to the wires coming into it. I can't really get at the outlet under the TV to check the wires but it also is without power. The floor outlet on the right side near the couch works fine as do all the other outlets and lights and appliances. My next step is to bring it to the dealer but that's a 45 mile drive. Has anyone out there had this problem and know how to fix it or is there a fuse or gfi plug that i have missed? The bathroom outlet is the only gfi I'm aware of. Im hopeful that the forum can help me out.
Thanks to you all for being there to bounce these things off of.
Howdy, hate to hear about this problem.
First off, the fuses protect only the 12 volt stuff (fans, lights, t-stats, etc), so you can probably quit chasing that angle.
We are concerned with the 120 volt. I would turn off all the circuit breakers "completely" then turn them back on again....just to make sure one is not tripped and needs to be reset.
The fact you said there is no power to the wires coming into the outlet, lead me to believe you either have a breaker tripped (which is what should have happened with the two appliances you had on it),.............. or you possibly have another gfci outlet that is tripped upstream of this outlet...thus cutting power to it.
Check your bathroom and kitchen for a gfci and reset them (the 2 most common places as the gfci are around sinks). Sometimes even your outside gfci (like in a storage compartment) can be tripped thus cutting power to any outlets on the same circuit.
Hope this helps
I would still believe it to be a circuit breaker tripping as a coffee maker and floor heater should easily have overwhelmed a 15 amp circuit.
