110 volt plug in living room slide. Shows 110 volts with meter. Plug in lamp. Works fine. Will not run small fan or any small appliance. Checked gfi in bathroom power in power out. Fan runs fine. Living room plug in will not power any thing more than a lamp. Does not trip breaker.

What voltage does the meter show with the fan or small appliance plugged in? (ie: meter leads in top outlet, fan in bottom outlet)

Possibly a loose connection with the plug wiring. A bad connection can limit the amount of current that can be passed.

110 is at the lower end of what it should be
120 +- 5% is normal supplied
are all your other power outlets showing close to 110?

IF yes...
check your power.... starting at the pedestal ,
then at main power cord at female end
Breaker panel bus bars

is you cord from pedestal old , hot or loose?
I had to buy a better cord to supply power to RV.


If good 120v power to breakers ...

check the breaker to the slide
Put probe on bus bar that feeds the breaker and on neutral bar

then on the other side of the breaker where the wire is attached and on neutral bar


breakers can and DO go bad.


the outlet... remove outlet from wall measure at the wire and then at the face by inserting probe into the slot
