GFCI Outlets - Provide your locations

Many times people have come on here and asked about dead circuits associated with their GFCI's. Newmar seems to hide some of the GFCI's, or at least puts them in out of the way places. I thought we could start a thread where everyone identifies where theirs are located and after a month or so I'll produce a document that "007" can as a Sticky or to the Mod lists. If you know what each one protects, you add that info too.

I'll start:

2019 Dutch Star 4018
- 1 under cabinet above kitchen sink
- 2 located in the electrical cabinet, half bath (no outlets) used for heated floors
- 1 located inside the half bath medicine cabinet (operates bedroom outlets and televator)

2019 - 4369 DSDP: Sames as Dutchstar Don's excpet the 2 in the 1/2 bath electrical area are working outlets. Not much use with the doors closed, as there is very little clearance.

Couldn't list them all by heart but found out the hard way that the half bath GFCI and basement GFCI that the HDMI balons are plugged into are on the same circuit.

To elaborate a bit, now that I'm on a computer. I was trying to isolate which outlets were on which circuit breaker, so if I chose to run some electric heaters, I could put them on different circuits.

I was using a small outlet tester when doing this, and when I was done, I must have accidentally hit the GFCI test button on it before pulling it out of the half batch outlet.

Later that night I had no satellite TV. I thought I must have lost the sat or possibly the SWM power injector or something, and when I started searching, I found the spot in the basement where both the SWM power injector and the Ethernet to HDMI balons were plugged in and there was no power.

If I remember correctly, these basement (some standard and 2 or 3 I had added as specials) are all GFCI and I can't remember if they all also have their own internal breakers or are just labeled as such.

Anyway, point is that if you have no power in the basement, it could be a tripped GFCI up top or vice versa.
