No Power to Front TV,VCR,SAT Box

I was in my RV with the front TV on while on Generator power when the TV, Direct TV box and VCR lost power. Also lost power to outside TV. Rear TV has power as does the rest of the coach.

This is a 2004 Fleetwood revolution.

I know when driving I have no power to the front TV and this is what it is acting like.

I also have the same problem on shore power.

It appear all front outlets for the TV and are dead.

Any advise? I looked for tripped breakers and the only breaker panel I found was under the rear bed.

Are there other breakers I should check. Could there also be a fuse I need to look for?

I don't have an inverter (but I slept at a Holiday Inn Express Last night ). It may be the inverter breaker.

if not the inverter breaker check your breakers in electrical panel and GFI outlets
(it may be in the basement)

Fleetwood usually runs these thru the gfi receptacle.

I have checked every GFI outlet I can find.

Found one in the toilet area and bathroom sink area. They were not tripped. Any suggestions where I might find others? I found other outlets but no trip,switch on them.

They put GFI's in the darn'dest places maybe just maybe you missed one. In our last MH the GFI for the TV etc. was the one in the farthest point, back in the bedroom on the back side of the bed in the corner. Let's put the GFI for the front stuff way in the back, Gee dont that make sense. Oh well maybe I need therapy for to much common sense.

Thanks. I'm thinking I'm missing it as well.

I will keep searching.

If you have the same problem on shore power it is not a GFI.
That would mean it could switch from working to not and back again without operator action.

If it is acting just like when you drive, could the ignition key have accidentally been turned. The other option is a failure in the cutout circuit. I know mine came with a manual.

I have no power to the TV on Gen, Shore or Inverter.

The key definitely off and not turned on.
I'm going through the manual but not finding anything yet.

The "entertainment' circuits in my RV are fed thru the inverter. When the inverter circuit breaker popped, I lost all power to those circuits.

Where was your inverter circuit breaker?
