Galley Elect plugs

I have a 2005 Fleetwood Expedition 38N. This AM had a small heater plugged into one of the outlets that are in the cockpit area. Wife then plugged in toaster and had the coffee pot going on the sink area. Those plugs on the passenger side of the RV went out. I have found a GFault plug that is by the sink in the bathroom on that side of the RV. I push the test button and it will not push the reset button out. I have checked the elect switchs that are under the bed that has the throw switches like at the house. None of them seem to be thrown. I was going to wait a while to see if this GF plug at the bathroom sink would be able to reset. The plugs on the other side of the RV are working. Any ideas I am missing. I guess there could be another GF plug some where outside in the compartments??? I don't have any of the instuments to ck stuff nor the smarts to do so....... tks glen

Look at the converter/inverter there are 2 breakers on it and most MH's have the kitchen cab area on this.

Sounds like you tripped a circuit breaker not a ground fault issue.
I'm sure the toaster and coffee pot draw around 1200 to 1500 watts each. So 3000 watts is 25 amps at 120 volts.
Even if they draw 1200 watts each that will be 20 amps.

Check the circuit breakers and use only one appliance or the other.

update on GF Plug

Len you were right on. This is new unit to me and I had not seen the two switches on the inverter/converter....when I looked at it one of the two switches was on off. I moved it to on and now power is up and going. Most know folks like me with little knowledge of these comples RV's can't make it without good folks like you and this site to help out......you have a great day.....glen

Odds are those circuits are all powered through the inverter, which probably has a max of 30 amps. You probably tripped the breaker on the inverter itself, or perhaps the 30A breaker that feeds the inverter.

The lack of power to the circuit is why the GFI won't reset. Nothing wrong with the GFI itself.
