Circuit Breaker?

Posted this in another forum as well, not sure where this should go, but desperate for any advice anyone is willing to share.

We have a 1992 Damon Challenger and blew power in part of the RV. We had plugged in a griddle and electric skillet on the outside and poof power blew.

Some electrical outlets work, others do not. We found the outlet in the bathroom with the test / reset button and clicked this and still have not been able to restore power. We have looked high and low for any other resets / breaker boxes ?? and are at a loss. Is there other switches somewhere we need to push to reset the power? Is it possible the reset on in the bathroom needs replaced? Going to feel really stupid if I take it somewhere only to learn there is another hidden box somewhere.

I suspect you should have an electrical panel somewhere in the rig. Closet, inside an interior cupboard it must be somewhere. When you reset the receptacle in the bathroom did you have power there? If you did the receptacle should be OK. If it didn't reset then you must have tripped a breaker but you'll have to find it first. Again, somewhere there must be an electrical panel. Good luck I hope you get it figured out.

Yes, there will be a breaker panel just like in your house. Keep looking in all the utility compartments inside and outside until tou find it. May also be under the bed in some models. Good luck.

Thanks and yes, we agree, there has to be a breaker panel somewhere. We've looked, we've had other rv owners look, it is becoming a joke we all laugh together at because no one can find the darn thing.

In many coaches, those equipped with inverters, it is not uncommon for the GFCI loop to be powered via the inverter... In fact the house I'm sitting in is so wired.

IF this is the case there may be a 2nd breaker panel (I have one of those)

There may also be a breaker on the INVERTER itself (I do not have one of those)

And,,, I have had the connections in the inverter junction box fail.

And that is almost exactly how I failed them.
Home is where I park it!
