Electrical Problem

When we connected to shore power tonight, all was great....until we discovered the living room TVs and the outlets in the passenger side slide out were not working. Everything else works fine. The GFC outlet in bathroom is fine. The breakers in the closet are not tripped. We looked at the fuse box in the basement below the slide. The fuses are good. We’re not sure what to look at next. In the morning we’ll check to see if there is a reset switch on the inverter. Has anyone had this problem in the past and found a solution?

We have a 2014 Allegro Bus 45’ LP

One thing that might help. When a breaker trips, it doesn't always look tripped. Try turning the breakers off and back on. If you feel one that has no feedback when you turn it off, it has been tripped. Maybe not a solution, but something to check.

I had a similar problem with my drivers side slide. Found the slide wiring harness connector became partially unplugged when the slide opened. Worked well when slide was closed but connector opened just enough to cause power loss when slide was opened.

On many Tiffins, the power to the slide outlets is provided by what is essentially a long extension cord that runs from a junction box in the slide and then plugs into a “regular” electrical outlet in the basement. So, here is an easy way to trouble shoot it....

Open the storage bay under the slide, and look up at the end of the diving board / beam that pushes the slide out; its hollow, and probably has a flexible electrical cord that comes out of the end, and into then inside the bay. Follow that cord, and at the end you’ll find a regular electrical outlet that cord is supposed to be plugged into. It may be behind a carpeted panel, or somewhat hidden. Chances are the plug on cord has come loose from the outlet.

Good luck

You may have to reset your inverter. It is a newer model coach so unplug your inverter. Plug back in and hold the reset button until the green light starts flashing then let go. Go inside and usually over the steering wheel look for your Magnum panel. Hit button for inverter and make sure it is turned on. Not sure if the Allegro Bus setup is the same.

Also check your invertor to see if the circuit breakers on there are tripped.

Different models have different types of inverters. Post your model and year or add it to your signature.

This is exactly what happened on my DS Front Slide last year. It would be the 1st thing I looked for.
