I give up....need some help.....electrical outlet @ coffe maker inop......also outside plug and outlet at outside entertainment area...all inop..... discovered in that order...not sure if all failed at once.....
All other outlets in coach...no problems....

Here's what I've done (also in order):

1. Reset A/c breakers (numerous times)
2. Disaasembled coffe maker outlet & checked wires....no juice
3. Reset main A/C breakers on generator

Nothing works.....out of ideas and patience...

Anybody had this before? Remedy?? Suggestions???

Thanks if U can help.

If they are on GFI, then maybe the GFI outlet has failed.

I agree with the GFI comment check all of them in your motor home.

There might be a loose wire on the back of the breaker box, I can get to mine by pulling out the draw under the fridge and looking inthere at all the wiring.

Ps Unplug or turn the generator off before messing witht he wires.

Yeah, it's the GFI. Happened to me once while I was using an electric grill outside the coach. Took me awhile to figure out where the GFI was.

Sounds like a GFI to me also. I have one in a funny spot -- at the back of the "lounge" area before you go into the bath area. If the slide is in -- you can not see it. Make sure you locate all of them on the coach -- Mine has 4 GFI circuits in it.

E U R E K A !!!!! and don't I feel dumb.......

I have an extra GFCI also.......It's on the staircase as you enter coach...........guess it's for your electric foot warmer before you enter the coach??????????......what a place for an electric outlet.......

Anywhoo.....checked over lunch and it fixed the outside and entertainment outlet....assume the coffee pot outlet too, but too hot at storage site to rewire the switch back in......

Thanks to those who responded...especially rvcarpenter who said check em all !!!!

GO HOGS !!!!
