Well, I think we have a wire in the daisy chain off somewhere. All found GFIís. Are powered (total of 4), with green light. Can not find a 5th. The kitchen slide works and has power. Opened every junction box and all look pretty decent. All plugs in Bays are hot and work. Plugs not working are two on either side of tv by the couch, plugs in kitchen. Outdoor TV plug is also cold. Stove top works.

It would seem there is either a 5th GFI that can not be located or the daisy chain is interrupted somewhere. I would think that would tend to fire a GFI.

There are somethings that should really never be seen on these coaches, I have seen more today than I care to see again. Next time I wonder why a Liberty coach is so damn expensive, I have pretty good idea. 10,000 man hours do make a real difference.

Thanks again for all your help today, tossing in the towel. Coach will be scheduled for service upon return. It will be interesting to find out what the final resolution turns out to be.

There is another junction box for the girard window awnings as those are 120v.

Do those work?

The outlet mounted to the bottom of the cabinet closest to the sink usually has a GFCI in it. Thats the 5th one in my LA.

2022 LA 4551 has 6.

2 are dedicated to the floor heaters.

2 under microwave
1 under stove
1 In guest medicine cabinet

It's possible that 1 of the ones below microwave are part of my special for additional non inverted power outlets in kitchen.

After a recount, my LA also has 5.
3 half bath
1 cook top
1 under cabinet in Kitchen

If we missed the one in the kitchen in the Mountain Aire after all the crap we did yesterday that going to be a good one to remember and laugh about for a while.

Well, blame on old eyes, dumbassery some times you just have to admit when you are an idiot. The non flush mounted under cabinet plug in kitchen was in fact tripped. Two reasonable able and bright men must have looked at it or felt it 6 or seven times.

Thank you again for all your help and wisdom

The problem is you know the right way to run things....not the "RVIA" approved shortcuts

I need to dig into that RVIA standard and other applicable codes. I have found some things that are in no way acceptable.
