Where is the GFI outlet?

First noticed the on board vacuum system would not come on. Then the outletís in the full bath area as well as the passenger side bedroom. Then the half bath outlets were not hot. Everything on drivers side of the coach works as expected. Kitchen are all good. Passenger side from half bath back no 120 volts.

So I assume there is a GFI circuit trip but I canít find it. I have read on some post about a GFI outlet under the sink in the half bath but I donít see one.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Check your main breakers, one has a yellow reset button in the middle, it may have popped.

Ask 'Newgle'

Why can't Newmar just post Owners Manuals in PDF ?


As suggested...check the RV Main AC Panel for GFCI CB that has tripped

You should have a GFCI under the kitchen counter above the sink or stove. I have three in my half bath, and one in the basement. The two inside the half bath fuse cabinet are for the heated floors. The Gerard awnings are wired into the kitchen GFCI. Not sure what all is wired into the basement. Hope that helps.

My 2018 has two in the half bath above the electric panel and one in the half bath cabinet above the sink. Hope this helps.

The one I would look for to address those issues is located behind the vanity mirror in the half bath.

in our 2022 4369 the awnings are wired to the half bath GFI.

Found it with the help of this forum!!

Thanks to all who posted! Found the GFI I was looking for in the cabinet above sink in half bath. You guys saved me a lot of hunting. Not sure when I would have thought to look in that cabinet.

To Site Operators. It might be a good idea to prepare a Sticky on this topic, which is one of the more frequent issues raised here. It took me a long, long time to learn where the GFCI's are located and even longer to learn what each operates. Checking GFCI's should be the absolute first step in attempting to solve any electrical gremlins that crop up.
