5th Wheel Power outlets

I have a 2002 Prowler 31.5 5th Wheel, all of the sudden over half of the electrical outlets will not work. I checked the fues box and no breakers are thrown and all the fues look good.

Any ideas?

Most likely a GFCI outlet that is tripped. Check in the bathroom and over the kitchen counter for a GFCI outlet and press the Reset button. You may have a GFCI circuit breaker in the power distribution panel that's tripped as well.

Also, I see that this is your first post, so

OK now I'm gonna sound dumb, but where is the power distribution panel? We have already changed out the GFCI plug in the bathroom.

Power distribution panel is the technical term for the breaker box or fuse box (where there are no 120VAC fuses, I'll bet ). A GFCI breaker looks like any other breaker except for the additional button (the yellow button below).

The power distribution panel on my 5er was on the outside on driver's side behind a fold down door. Your converter is probably there also. There are 12V fuses and 120V breakers there also.

I had fuses hidden behind my converter, had to take a panel off to get acess to the back of the unit, and there was a fuse I never would have known was there.

Still need help with this? We have a 84 Prowler, as well as a Sea Breeze. The Sea Breeze had a similar problem when we bought it. After much searching with an OHM meter, we located two major electrical wires that were bare and shorting, thus tripping the breakers. Hope this helps.

Funny you should mention that 1mamawolf. My used Breeze also came with a short. It was a bedroom 12V, 10 amp circuit breaker that would pop as soon as I reset it. It was labeled Power Driver Seat, which I don't have. Turned out to be a shorted pair of wires up in the driver side wheel well. Easy fix.
