2005 Adventurer, 38J. For some reason I have lost power to the wall plugs behind both TV's as well as the VCR and DVD and the satellite receiver. Everything was working fine a month ago and I haven't done any kind of work that would cause this. There is power at all of the circuit breakers and all the other wall plugs in the unit have power. They won't work with the inverter either. Anyone have any ideas?

Hey Gary,

Just a thought, but did you check all of your GFI outlets? I had to chase one of these down before and found a GFI had tripped.

I could be wrong, but I beleive both tvs are tied into the same circuitry that prevents you from watching television while driving down the road. That said, I found my tv wouldn't turn on either, then I realized my ignition key was turned back on the accessory position...


(And BigTrace is right too... -there's a GFI right up by the front tv you can try resetting.)

I bet they have it figured.. That GRI is really easy to trip if you are using the inverter switch in that area...rgr...

GFI is the place to look for problems.

All power for these is routed through your invertor.

Check and make certain your invertor is plugged in. Even if the invertor is off and you are on shore power the 110v is routed through the invertor.

Well, you guys were right. The ground fault on the inverter had kicked out. Once I got a light up there and my bifocals adjusted I found it. I figured it had to be something simple.

Thanks to all for your help.

Hey Gary...

Now that you've solved the GFI issue, why not solve the bifocal issue as well?

As someone that wore glasses 24/7 from a wee young lad to adulthood, I am AMAZED at how much I love not having to wear them now, thanks to
laser corrective surgery!!

(Hey there Big Trace....how ya doin buddy??)

Actually a friend of mine just had this done. The doctor suggested that he only correct one eye though so now he uses one eye for distance and one eye for close up. Seems weired to me but he says you get use to it. I actually don't need my glasses for up close. I have 20/20 at 20", just can't see much past arms length and can't focus up close anymore with the glasses on. Hence the need for the cheaters.

Gary,I had what you're friend had done,it's called "mono-vision" and your brain figures it out without any hesitation..
I even think you could get rid of those cheaters too...

Glad the TV's are working, I guess the eyes are a topic for another day and another forum....
