Electrical outlets dont work...


We're on day two with our new Roo and getting it loaded up for our first (and possibly) last camping trip of the year.

My husband tried plugging a lamp into one of the outlets and it wouldnt work...he tried another and still won't work.

Any ideas/suggestions what could be wrong and how we can fix it?? We have a 2012 Roo 183

It is very easy to press the "Test" button when plugging in items.
This pops the GFCI and all the outlets downstream from that outlet.

On ours, all of the outlets that are fed by the GFI have a small "GFI" sticker on them. I thought it was goofy at first, but they do help spark that ah-ha moment when you plug something in and nothings happens! :-)

Most everyone else is probably fine, I however need all the help I can get! :-)
