Hello everyone! I am glad to be a part of this group. We had our 1st Salem by Forest River for 13 years and recently upgraded in February to a new Salem Hemisphere 300bh. We have an issue with electrical and are hoping if anyone out there has the answer to assist us. I plugged an electric skillet into the outlet by the whirlpool refrigerator, the refrigerator and the outlet both quit working. This happened in our old camper too and we always checked the fuse the breaker box and the GFI and could always get it working. For this new camper we have checked the fuses, GFI and checked the breakers and it still doesn't work. We have left the breakers off for a while, but still doesn't work. 3 weeks later, still nothing. Does anybody have an idea of what we can do to fix this? We got it set up on our lake lot so we really don't Want to have to take it three hours back to camping world to have it checked out. Thank you

Check the GFI in the bathroom and see if it has popped I know this sounds dump but it may be the problem.

It's got a whirlpool refrigerator in it could there be a plug behind it that's got a GFI?

OK, I should have added when checking the circuit breakers even if they look like they are on switch them to the off position for a few second and then reset. Thermal breakers take a little time to cool off.

Thank you Seadog! It was the fuse in the inverter. Had no idea it had one.
