Some 120 volt plugs are not working

2004 national RV tropical DP, T370
three plugs suddenly stopped working. don't matter if on inverter or genset.


Bathroom ground fault plug has no power, testing at the wires, plug buy the front door and the one in the first bay buy the door.


All the breakers are good and all the other ground fault plugs and those daisy chained to them function.


power out of the main fuse panel.

Circuit breaker on the inverter/charger tripped, down in the basement.

Some are switch type and some are push in to reset. Look all around it for them.

tw could be right. On our 2000w Xantrex there is a barely discernible bubble on the outside that you push to reset.

That may be because your inverter only feeds a few plugs in the RV. Check your inverter.

Do your entertainment centre plugs work?

all of these plugs worked untill today or yesterday...


only noticed because one of them ran the freezer in the basement. melted ice-cream.


in checking all the plugs I found 3 that wear nonfunctional.


the bathroom gfi and the others are far apart and there are 2 other gfi outlets closer to the other 2 outlets.


Don't know where else to look for a junction box or what.



will continue to tear the outlets apart to see if it is them or a lose connection.


frustration is high and time for a beer....

What is the brand of your inverter. Is it green?

Hmmm. The Inverter is after the panel. Iím not doubting that the inverter is working. But there are breakers on the 458 itself. Depending on the series there should be 3. I input and two output. Again depending on the series they may be white buttons or standard flip type. Maybe give them a quick check.

If you have a outside outlet, check for corrosion

The power is back to the plugs. I hate that cause now it will happen again and I will be unable to fix it if it isn't broken.



Will check the basement plug for corrosion..
