Ac outlets in bedroom

For some reason the ac outlets in the bedroom by the bed quit working also the ac lights that has the dim switch quit working also. Has anyone had this problem? Thanks in advanced.

Check all of your GFCI outlets to see if there is one tripped. Often other things are daisy-chained off the GFCI.

….agree, not GFI....pretty sure those circuits are on the inverter/by-pass circuit...need to check breakers in inverter by-pass panel [black] next to main 120vac panel [gray]....also need to check that inverter is functioning [inverting/by-passing] correctly....

Dennis,

Depending on the inverter, you may have push button circuit breakers on the inverter it self.

You may also have a loose/ burned wire from arcing , neutral or hot wire in one of the outlets upstream of your bad outlet

...if ALL other outlets are working then inverter is fine. Guess I would take front face off inverter breaker panel[black][or get to back of it] and verify breakers are "actually" working and wires are connected....there is also a junction box under the bed frame [remove mattress and frame cover plywood] to gain access...
PS--tip for other Alpine owners--the junction box under the bed on 40ft coaches is a good place to check periodically to ensure wires are properly connected and tight....

...including the box under the bed frame?????...only option left is to grab the old voltmeter and begin tracing the circuit from the breaker box--not fun but its the only way to make sure you have power leaving the breaker box.

Check the bad outlet for power AT THE WIRES. Outlets do go bad.
Same with the dimmer switch.
Start at the easy point and work back towards the power source.

I would add also to start checking at the first thing in that feed. If the first thing in the line is a outlet and it's bad everything after will be dead.

Would an dimmer switch cause an outlet not to have power? All of the breakers have power.
