External gfci outlet in 2017 Sunseeker 3100 SS

I have googled and searched our rig to try to find an external gfci outlet. Our outlets, microwave and TV are not working with or without generator running. I've flipped each breaker individually and the main breaker and reset the bathroom gfci outlet with no fix yet. From what I've read, there may be another outlet but I'll be darned if I can find it! Lol. Any help is much appreciated!

There may be a junction box in one of your storage areas I would check that . I'm not aware of an external gfci.

sometimes they may be mounted on the 'ceiling' within a lower outside bay... or you may also find that the tv or microwave itself is plugged into a GFCI outlet, feeding the others downstream.... but, who knows!

Welcome to the forum. We're sorry that it took a problem to get you to join, but we hope that you will stay engaged after you get a resolution.



It is probably in a larger cabinet and if you have an outlet in any exterior compartment, that would be it.

RV electrical

You need to carefully go through out your RV and note any plug and receptacles that you may have. Midnight, in the rain on the road solder is not a good time to go looking for breakers. Good idea to have your better half with you when you do this.

Give Forest River a call first thing in the AM and ask them. Your symptoms don't sound like a GFI problem btw because TVs and the Microwave are not on GFI circuits. I doubt that you have a transfer switch but if you do, that would be where I'd start.

If no transfer switch, your power cord needs to be plugged into the generator outlet in the electrical bay for circuits to work when running the generator. Everything should work when plugged into shore power. It it isn't, check the pedestal breaker and check your 30amp breaker on your distribution panel.

My 3100 has one in one of the storage compartments on the passenger side under the water heater I dont know if yours is in the same place, look in all of them with a flashlight.

Did you get the problem figured out yet? If you're still hunting a GFCI outlet, they do sometimes put them in weird places. In our RV there is one BEHIND the drawers of the bottom kitchen cabinets. So check everywhere!!

Do you have an inverter? If yes. Check the brakers on it.

Thank you all for your responses! I've taken out drawers, unscrewed panels and poked around with the flashlight in all of our storage areas.Fortunately, since its newer to us, a lot is still empty. We have an appt at the service center towards the end of June. I didn't want to put it in and risk us not having it for our camping week in early June. I'll post back what they find in case anybody else happens to run into this with a similar model.
So glad to have found iRV2 Forums!

The kitchen GFCI on mine is ABOVE the sink, on bottom of the wall cabinet, facing DOWN, so BEND over and look UP

We kept searching and fiddling and low and behold, we figured it out and I have no idea how it is all related! The fuse in the TV's 12v charger plug was blown. The screw off end of the car charger thingy. After that was changed, everything worked. I'm sure somebody somewhere can make sense of it, but I sure can't! Thank you all for helping out! Much appreciated as those manuals are useless!
