Power to TVs went out

At a campground now in my 2008 Dutchmen Dorado 26BE. Was watching tv, when it went out, then realized some power outlets also went out. Everything else is working on shore power, so I assume itís a fuse. Problem is I have searched everywhere for a fuse panel, inside and out and canít find it. The only manual ai have is for the Ford F450 and itís fuses, but nothing about the interior of the camper. Any help would really be appreciated.

Could be a tripped GFCI outlet somewhere.

The Dutchman is a Four Winds/Thor product. The likely location of your 120v circuit breakers is in the "converter-charger" and is probably mounted on the bed support or at the bottom of the night stand.


It will be within about 4 feet of where your shore power cord enters the coach.


I'm kind of in the camp that says this is a GFCI trip, as often the TV power is "down stream" of the outlets in the galley, which are GFCI protected (as is the bathroom outlet and any exterior outlet on the side of the coach or in a storage bay).


Find your converter-charger box, verify that all the 120v circuit breakers are on (turn them off and back on), and see if your TV comes back. If not, start looking for GFCI outlets and then reset if you find one tripped. If it won't stay on I'll have some other questions.


First, though, was there another appliance or 120v electrical device in use? Been on for a bit or just turned on?

Look for a BROWN METAL PANEL, mine is at knee space under kitchen sink, (it is a door with PLASTIC LOCK, turn 1/4 w/ finger/coin), BREAKERS/ FUSES behind door; ALSO look for a tripped GFCI Receptacle either UNDER cabinet over sink or on side of bed BASE or in bath?

Finally found it at the base of the bed in the slide out. It was not the GFI circuit. It was three AC outlets that had two TVs plugged in and a third outlet with nothing plugged in. The TV had been on for a while. While camping, we had a bad leak, so it went in to repair today for both issues.
