110 Volt Wall Plugs

Periodically, the wall plugs to the microwave and coffee maker, and whatever may be plugged in, power is lost momentarily and then comes back on. I have checked breakers, they are okay.

Has anyone ever had this situation?

Usually an intermittant problem as you describe is an indication of a loose wire connection or a faulty GFI. Trip the breaker that feeds the receptables in question and check each connection.

And when checking for loose wires, don't forget the neutral connections...

I had that kind of problem when this rig was new with several circuits.

I've decided that many RVers have a few screws loose

The loose screws in this rig were in the master circuit breaker box.. most all of them.

A lot of those loose screws are actually push type wire connections that need to be reinserted,vibration just shake them loose, or even better yet replace with the screw type outlets.
