That receptacle may be fed from a GFCI in the kitchen or bath.

Make sure all of your GFCI receptacles are reset.

This happened to me once. It turned out power was supplied by a standard extension cord plugged into a power strip. Apparently when cramming something under there I had caught and disconnected the cord running to that power strip without even knowing about it.

The worst part is my *WIFE* was the one who figured it out!

Check all your GFI outlets in the coach. In fact, go through and reset all of them. My guess is that you have one tripped.

My wiring diagram shows that duplex outlet in the front compartment wired to same branch circuit as the refrigerator ac. This is not an outside outlet in mine.
This outlet supplies 120 volts to the converter and the 600 watt inverter.
The duplex box seems to be hard wired to a male plug assembly that plugs into the inverters output. This is the power feed to the two entertainment areas that operate from the inverter in the absence of gen or shore power. The inverter has its' own transfer relay. If you do not have the inverter option, there may be no additional hard wiring.

Since yours is 3 years newer then mine and a Seabreeze this may not apply at all.

Believe it or not, it's probably the GFI above the bathroom sink.

I have the same problem in my 2004 Dolphin 5342. I've verified it's not either the kitchen or bathroom GFI's. Did you find a solution?

Mike H,

See my post earlier in this thread. Check CB for the refrigerator!

Yes I've checked the refrig. breaker. All circuit breakers appear to be fine. Refrig. works on AC. The wiring connections to all three outlets are properly connected as well. I had hoped to find a loose connection at one of them but no such luck.

I have 3 GFIs. One kitchen, one bathroom and one at side where handrail (coming up the steps) is. When my outside outlet doesn't work, I reset each one.

Did you check the outlets with meter or lamp plugged into outlets. Sometimes the wire may looked pushed in hole but will have insulation on it for poor connection.

Yes I pulled the wires out of the outdoor outlet and checked the bare wires with a voltage meter, no power. I did notice that the only two GFI circuits I have (bath and kitchen) only have a single line-in feed. I thought a line-out would be connected to one of the GFI outlets to power the dead outdoor outlet. I suspect that my outdoor outlet wire is not connected to a power source.

Mike,

I had the same problem once. Some time before I noticed it, I had changed out a bad GFI at the kitchen sink. I used a meter and found that the wires from the GFI were in fact the ones going outside, It was a real head scratcher sense the GFI worked fine. Then one morning about three o'clock I got to wondering if there was an in and out to the thing. That afternoon I pulled the GFI and notice that it in fact did have an in and out. I rewired it and thing are working fine now. Good Luck!

Harold
