Heated floor issue

Picked up our coach two weeks ago and have noticed that in the last few days the mid and forward heated floor sections aren't working. We live in northern maine and it's snowed the last two nights. Coincidentally we have a flashing gfi in the half bath. Checked both breakers #2 #4 as well as fuse #12 and all good. Can't reset the gfi. Looked up flashing gfi on google and they say it's a defective gfi. So I call Newmar and they've never heard of a flashing gfi. Sure enough they look it up too and I'm correct. But guess what? That gfi is wired into the heated floors! I said no way, who would do that? I'll report back here once I get the gfi replaced to see if it cures the floors.

That's weird on the GFI, our problem with the floor heat was a little different. They would come on but not stay on, going off after a few minutes, turns out it was a software fix that needed to be done, but yours sounds a little different. It is strange that they would have them wired to a GFI, but it does seem that they make each unit just a little bit different, good luck and stay warm.

Try again to reset the GFI. We have a new Dutch Star and I found I could not reset the GFI with my finger. I used a screwdriver with a blunt end and it finally reset.

Our two GFIs for the heated floors are in the half bath next to the 110-volt breakers. I tripped the breakers when trying to locate another problem and it took a little effort to get them reset.

Thanks LK
The gfi would not reset, it had a blinking red light. I replaced it and all is well. I shorted it for a second when I let a hot hit a neutral wire and it kicked breaker #2 I kicked off breaker #4 and that turned off the right gfi. I must say those gfi breakers are not easy to replace, they are surface mounted with a box behind them. Anyway now I know which breakers pass through which gfi, but I don't know which floor sections they control, yet...
