I agree.
When I see threads like this, I often wonder how many people own homes for a couple years and don't know the location of the fuse/breaker box?... or a water pump... or (insert whatever here)

I don't believe GFCIs are on fuses; I think those circuits are on breakers.

Unless your RV has fuses like this one, your GFCIs are on a breaker!

This is supposed to be a chance for the DW to feel important and needed.

Check all your 12v lights and 120v power outlets inside and out. Btw....do you know which outlets are on your GFI circuit? The GFI Control tester is usually the bathroom outlet. It may feed outlets in the kitchen and any outside electrical outlets.
That's exactly what it does

You might be able to find some collectable pennies behind them.
