2006 Damon Daybreak

Does anyone know if the Daybreak has any outside electrical outlets?

Also all of my GFI plugs aren"t working. Anybody know about those suckers?

The Daybreak and Outlaw are very similar forward from the rear wall of the main room...so, I submit that you should surely have at least 2 outside 120VAC outlets. 1 on the ceiling of the bin just behind the entry door and 1 inside the exterior radio panel. Yours might have more and they would be on the ceilings of any bins...like maybe in the bin with the shore power cord(?).

All of these outside outlets should be on the GFCI protected circuit of you RV's power system...because you might be standing in a puddle when using the outlet.

The GFCI circuit is a line of outlets that are on a dedicated breaker with the GFCI control outlet often located in the bath and/or kitchen area...if any problem happens in that entire circuit string, the GFCI control will pop the button on the control outlet. This will kill the entire string of protected outlets. This should pop well before the breaker pops.

These GFCI control outlets can break or wear out. If you are getting no power after trying to reset the outlet and where the breaker is in the on position, then your first fix attempt could be to replace the entire GFCI outlet.

If you are not comfortable working on 120volt systems...call an electrician. It is not complicated, but can be very dangerous.

Best luck

GFCI Woes

Thanks for all that info. Do you happen to know where the breakers are on this coach? I have looked and haven't been able to find any. (Very new to Motorhoming)

Thanks again.

On my Challenger, the distribution box and breakers are located on the base of the bed close to where the Shore power cable attaches. My bed is mounted on the left side. If not there, look in a closet in the general area. Good luck! JM2...

Look for a dark brown or black plastic panel about the size of a boot box lid.

Damon put these breaker panels in the cabinets of the bedroom near the floor and sometimes inside a wardrobe. To open the lid, push on the bottom of the door to release the latch.

Best luck

On my '05 Daybreak, the breaker panel is at the end of the hall on the bed platform.
I only have one true "outside" plug on the passenger side with a hinged weatherproof cover. I also have one on the driver side in the shore cord compartment. I added a couple more in other compartments.
The only time I thought I had a GFI problem was when I needed to push the "Reset Button" and that fixed it.

I have a 96 daybreak, it has one 2 outlet on passenger side towards the rear and a coaxial connector in the same location on the drivers side. Don't know where the coach fuse box is. I have a bunch of fuses under the front dashboard, but I think/hope they are only for the chassis since they are very difficult to reach and read. I have 2 AC outlets under my upper side cabinet that do not work and need to find the coach fuses/breakers. Thanks for a starting point to look, never thought of looking in the bedroom.
