You learn something new all the time

We bought our coach new in 2004 ... we were recently visiting family for a few hours away from the coach ... when we returned there was no power on the curb side of the coach ... so I unplugged everything that I could think of ... reset the GFI in the curb side of the bathroom ... it would not click ... so I thought faulty GFI ... I will need to replace that ... so overnight we used extension cords from the street side plugs to run hair dryers and the computer.

The next morning we packed up to move on ... I had some Christmas lights plugged into the outlet in the outside entertainment bay ... I packed them up and we headed for our next destination ...

When we stopped for lunch, I pressed the reset button on the GFI and it clicked ... AHAH ... the outlet in the entertainment bay is also on the GFI in curb side of our bathroom ... I did not need to replace the GFI after all but I do need to make sure that the connections from the entertainment center are protected from rain ...

The old dog learned a new trick ....

Roger that Sir,
Glad that no real damage was done. We all can learn lessons from this. Hope your coach continues to work well after the hiccup.
Scott
