GFI Problem.

Berkshire 390QS....tripped the breaker at the pole in the campground.

I have re-set the GFI's inside the RV, but can't figure out where the re-set is for the ones under the RV.

Can anyone help?

There is a 50 amp inline fuse located in the upper left-hand corner of the battery compartment if blown no service. I have had this blow on other MH from shore power spike. There is a previous post that relates to this were the person had a problem after a surge and could not get full electric service back and it was this fuse.

What I meant to say was that I was hooked into a 30 amp service at the campground, thinking it was a 50.

When I put the second air conditioner on, it tripped the breaker's at the electrical connection for the campground.

I reset the breakers in that box, and everything was powered up inside again. I noted that the GFI plugs in the main living area of the RV had tripped, I reset them with the reset button on the plug and they were fine.

I have 2 power outlets in the basement area of the RV and they are also GFI protected. They are not working, even though I reset the ones in the living quarters of the bus.

That is the issue I'm having.

In your breaker box, there is one breaker that feeds the basement outlets that has an GFI on it.

I lost power to my basements before and the GFI in our bathroom was the culprit.

I looked in the compartment outside the coach immediately below the pilot seat, and there are just fuses in there it appears.

Not having had this problem beforeÖ Is that where the breakers are or should I be looking somewhere else?

Check on your inverter there are a couple of circuit breakers on the top. Try those.
