We have a Cedar Creek that we are having a problem with our inside and the outside electrical receptacles. It has no power. We have checked the fuses and everything looked okay at the panel. Where do we go from here? It all seems to be on one side of the RV. It's a 5th wheel with 3 slides. Thanks for any help you can offer! Wanda W., (Meridian, MS)
Wanda, the dead side of your Cedar Creek is probably on the same circuit as the ground fault circuit interrupter, (GFCI); probably located in the lavatory. If all the circuit breakers are fine at the panel, the GFCI has probably tripped causing all the receptacles downstream of it to lose power. Simply reset the button on the GFCI and all power should return. The coach, however, must be plugged into shoreline power in order to test and reset the GFCI.
Here's another related question in which I go a little further into detail about the GFCI.
