Gfi's

Convoy,

Our coach has no visible GFI outlets. Not at underside outlets of either bathroom vanity nor at under-cabinet outlet at galley area. The owner's notebook refers to them being -generally- at both of those locations. Either I'm missing something or they're not there. Any insight would be appreciated!

Mike

Usually the bathroom (or the "Wet room nearest the breaker box" (Wet rooms are rooms with plumbing, On a floor plan they are marked "WET") is where you find the GFCI.

HOWEVER, they do make a circuit breaker that incorporates a GFCI.

That might be where they hid it (look for a "TEST" button)

Additional option.. As noted by other responder.. Might have been removed by someone short on safety concerns.

I have one GFI breaker that has six or so slave outlets that it feeds. There is only one with the rest button that is used for all of them. Yours may be the same and is in a place you haven't looked yet. Hope you find it ( if you in fact have one. )

In my 2000 Magna I have a single gfci outlet near the floor below my electrical circuit breaker panel in the bedroom. Since our coaches are different models and 6 years apart yours is surely different. I recently replaced mine as it would drop out at what seemed random occurrences to me.

Try studying the electrical diagrams for your coach and see if they are noted on those drawings.

If you don't get the help needed here, try the Yahoo Country Coach Owners forum.

check the breakers, ours has a couple gfi breakers.

They will be the ones with the test buttons, if outlets dead they also will be the ones that area tripped

Look in the bedroom near the floor. If your main electrical panel is located somewhere else, look below it near the floor.

Thanks to the group for your help. Finally found the gfci at the wall below the glass door cabinets in the dining area, behind the electrical panel. Couldn't be seen with the slide retracted! Tripped it and found it disabled outlets at sinks. All's well.
Again, thanks to all for your help.
Merry Christmas.
Mike

Me thinks, that sometimes engineers have a grin on their faces when hiding certain items... Glad you located it, enjoy your holiday!!!

Maybe you could trade it out with a plug in the group you can get at more easily.
