Fridge electrical

I have a 2018 FR Sabre and While my wife was cooking breakfast this morning, she plugged her Keurig and an electric skillet into the plug by stove. Within 2 mins there was no power to fridge and that particular plug. Everything else works fine. Looked at every breaker and fuse but everything seems normal. Iíve had to remove panel under stove to run an extension cord to fridge, and fridge now works. What panel or breaker am I missing?? HELP!!

Are there other outlets on that same circuit that are working? Did you actually flip the breaker to make sure it's not tripped, sometimes they look OK but are tripped. Also is it a gfi plug that could have tripped..

If all else looks good, you might want to pull the outlet. They are not like the outlets at home. They are a pressed on connection and if put under a high load and they are not pressed on all the way they "burnout" the connection.

I’ve tripped every breaker and pulled every fuse. Everything is fine. What is best way to pull faceplate off of plug without breaking it? It appears to be glued on or something

I thought all FR Sabres had a inverters connected and dedicated to the fridge. Does yours?

If so, I'd be surprised to learn that the outlet and fridge outlet are impacting each other.

If they are inline, you'll want to check behind the outlet for the fridge too, and probably first if its closest to the fuse box.

Good luck.

The outlet and fridge are both coming off of same junction behind stove. Fridge actually plugs in to a single outlet and lead to outlet pairs off of that.

You said that you've tripped every breaker and pulled every fuse, BUT have you tripped and reset the GFCI receptacle(s) around the RV? There could be one on the outside of the RV as well as on the inside. The fridge receptacle may even be a GFCI.
