Went to plug DW's heating pad into the outlet above the dinette. No power. Hmmmm, everything else was working fine. Just for laughs I checked the GFI in the bathroom..that was ok as were all the breakers. Only one thing to do, start tracing..Checked the box under the slide and there was no power. Traced that wire to the passenger side where it went up into the coach. Pulled everything out of the cabinets and saw that the wire ran to the outside outlet. Pulled the outlet and found that three of the wires were held on with sta-cons and screws but the rest were just pushed into the plug..like the homeowners outlets you buy at Home Depot. I found one was very loose so I pulled it and piggybacked it on a screw teminal. Problem solved.
Just another bit of knowledge that may come in handy some day.

Good find Chandler I wonder how many more outlets have loose wires pushed in them. Vibrations sure can shake things up.
