Howdy from Wyoming

I've got a 26' Nash. All the outlets work except one. The only reset button I can find is in the bathroom. One GFIC outlet in the kitchen don't work with no reset button. I have looked everywhere, including the storage area, and can not find another reset button. I'm thinking I need to replace that one outlet, but am not sure. Could use some help. Thanks, Mark

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure one of the forum experts on electrical problems will try to help you trouble shoot. Good luck.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

It could be on a circuit with a GFI breaker in the panel!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Howdy and welcome to the forum. Where about in WY are you located? I'm in Rolling Hills (30 miles east of Casper) and if you're close I'd be happy to take a look at it and see what we can find.

George

I live a few miles outside of Cody. In one of my lives, I worked ranches in the Hole-in-the-Wall (early seventies), and chased skirts in Casper, usually the Wonder Bar and the Victorian on West Collins. I believe every guy has a 'bad-luck' town and for me that was Casper -- although I met some great people there, especially amongst the band, Wheatstraw, and their friends. If you are ever travel into the basin, give me a holler. Mark

Iím up your way several times a year and have several good friends in Cody. Our first reservation for the summer is a week at Wapiti campground.

I see a lot of friendly chatter, but no advice on the outlet problem. I don't have a motor coach so treat my advice accordingly.

An outlet with a GFI label on it and does not have a reset or test button is unlikely to be the problem. It is daisy chained with one that does or the service panel has a GFI circuit breaker.

Continue looking for an outlet with a reset button. Some owners have reported finding the resettable outlet behind a refrigerator, or on the other side of a nearby wall. You could have one in an under side compartment.

On the other hand non-GFI outlets have been known to fail. Sometimes it is a loose screw connector. Sometimes it is a loose crimp connector, or worse a twist on connector. The loose or corroded connector may be on a nearby outlet that is daisy chained with the non-working one.

Good advice

Thanks Persistent,

I was going to buy a new switch ... now, I am going to take your advice and keep looking. Perhaps someone out there has a '97 Nash and can help lead me to finding another reset button. Truly appreciate your knowledge and help.
Hope and Trust all is well with you and yours. God's Speed, Mark

Hey Mark,

Another welcome from a fellow Wyoming resident!!!

I'm down in Cheyenne so not as close as George. LOL

Anyhow, if that is actually a GFCI plug it should have the test and reset button on it.

Does it just have a little sticker that states it is GFCI protected? If so that could be a wiring issue in either that plug or the actual GFCI that controls it.

I also have one similar in my 99 Layton and it is controlled by the GFCI over by the table.

Hopefully this is stating the obvious in a rude way, but did you by chance look in the breaker panel? It likely has a separate breaker and possibly even a reset button in the panel.

I would start at the outlet. Pull it out and test voltage with a multi meter. If you have power then it should be an easy fix, of not try tracing the wires to the outlet before it
