Our last coach had two. One in the bathroom and the other was in the galley area on the bottom of one of the cabinets pointing down. If you were not looking hard you would have never seen it.

Thanks for the sugestions. Just found it as a last ditch effort I got on my hands and knees and crawled around on the floor checking just above the floor(found an outlet by the frig at this level, the GFI was located in the bedroom next to the laundry hamper door just above floor level. Thanks again for the help, I had become very frustrated and the ribbing I was getting from the wife ws almost unbearable !

If your coach does not have a surge protection system; you should check into one. I like the Surge Guard that checks out the incoming voltage before connecting the coach to it. It is not cheap but is going to be well worth it one day. I know it has saved my electronics on two occasions as I had neighbors who lost lots of things due to a spike.

It would be very helpfull if you would post the Make/Year?Model of your coach when asking tech questions. If you post that info then somebody with the same coach could answer your questions. Just a suggestion.

Another GFI in the cubby

For future reference, our 2008 Pacifica also has a GFI down in the front right cubby. It took me a while to find that one time.
