Have you checked the circuit breakers under the bed and the GFI outlets?

Where are you at in Dallas?

You may have to snoop around to find the actual GFI outlet that has the reset. It could be almost anywhere, even an outside location. Ours is somewhat hidden in the kick space below the fridge.

I'm not far from you. Send me a PM with a phone number if you like for me to come by. I'd like to ask you about Utah anyway

The GFI in the bath caused my microwave circuit to be dead. Don't know what your setup is but look for that and maybe resetting will fix it.

Jeff,
You don't mention the year or model you have, but there are usually 2 outlets that are GFI. One is by the kitchen sink and the other is in the bathroom. Also, there is a circuit breaker panel usually by the foot of the rear bed. You could check the breakers to see if they are tripped.
Good luck.

I went over with a voltmeter and we found a Miswired 30 amp outlet at the residence. Seems to have fried the transfer switch. They are now looking for parts to fix it.

Great job Dan. GuessIng that he did not have a surge protector on his Berkshire but bet he will in the future. Always good to see Berkshire owners helping each other out.

He actually had one, but they had plugged it in once without it.
