Loss of electric in 110 plugs
 
I have a 2001 tradwinds ltc, I lose my wall plugs for a hour or so, then it comes back on, the breakers will not reset during the loss of power, anyone have had the same problem

Hello and :welcome: We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy our website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.

You should be checking the electrical distribution and inverter connections to be sure they are clean and tight. If so, then you may have an inverter starting to fail; maybe something like a bad cooling fan.

Hello,


SWAG, also look at the GFI and make sure it is not tripping.

Does this happen on shore power? Do you have an inverter?

If this happens while off shore power (on the inverter) maybe a thermal overload protection breaker on the 12v side of the inverter is tripping. They will automatically reset after the overload is cleared and breaker has cooled down enough. This may suggest a voltage leak (short) condition somewhere in the 110v side creating an overload on the inverter and thus on the 12v side. Might try unplugging/turning off all 110v loads and see if that makes a difference. If so, then start to suspect a faulty 110v load somewhere. Add one device at a time and a while to see if that causes the problem and just walk it through every 110v load.

Check the bathroom wall plate, it should have a reset button if tripped, also kitchen outlet as well. If that's ok, open the fridge outside cover, there should be an outlet with a cord plugged in, possibly loose. Good luck :whistling: :welcome:

Loss of 110 power
 
Thanks for all the help, happens when plugged into shore power,still have ac and other 110 ,ck'd all the gfi pugs.

At this point I'd start checking each outlet and 110 device one by one with a multimeter (voltmeter) right after an outage event started and try to isolate things more.

Question, do you have ANY of the Manuals for your unit?
Do you have a Surge Guard installed?
Do you have a meter?
Do you know how to use a meter?
Do you have a ATS?
Have your measure the AC input to the main Breaker at that time?

Don't waste your time, replace your GFI outlet. Depending on how your coach is wired you may have 2 of them on the same circuit. I have found that testing the GFI outlets with an ohm meter is waste of time. There are so many things that can go wrong with them. With light use they will last about 10 years or so then are on borrowed time. Coffee makes eat GFI's for breaky...... Lastly, if they are wired to your inverter check the grounds on your inverter to make sure they are clean.
