Where is fuse/circuit breaker 1986 Winnie

I just bought a 1986 Chevy Winnebago Chieftan. None of the electrical outlets are working but the lights work. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker somewhere that controls the outlets? If so, where is it?

You may have one, or more, tripped GFCI outlet(s).

I thought that might be it, too, but there aren't any GFCI outlets in this Winnie.

The 12VDC house battery power, (for the lights), and the power to the outlets are not related.
Apparently you have a 120VAC problem, (not a 12VDC problem).

Does the receptacle you have the RV shore power cord plugged into have power?
Is your shore power cord good?
Are you using a bad electrical adapter?

Double check the bathroom sink area. Most of the time the sink outlet was a ground fault outlet. It ran in series with the wall outlets.

I had a 87 Itasca Sunflyer, I think they were under the fridge but not sure. You can call Winnebago, their records would tell you. 800-537-1885. I keep their number in my phone in case something happens while I'm on the road. Have your VIN number ready. Also look in your cabinets, it will probably be by your converter. Good luck!
