No power to washer/dryer

After driving the MH the rear bathroom is quite warm due to the engine, often when we arrive at our destination and try to run the dryer it has no power, checking the washer it has no power. After leaving it for a while, not sure how long, when the bathroom has cooled down both washer and dryer get power back. Is this a safety feature, is it supposed to happen?

TIA.

There have been problems with over heating in the rear closet affecting the control panel in the rear closet. I think there may been a fix but hopefully someone here knows more about it.

It's not a safety feature and it shouldn't happen. If your 2020 is like my 2019, there is one breaker for the washer and dryer. I always turn that breaker off when on the road and have not had any issues. Overheating a breaker panel most commonly affects the high load (air conditioner) breakers when they are actually drawing power during warm conditions.

So I checked the breaker, turned the washer on, turned breaker labeled washer/dryer off and the washer still had power

It's time to get out your voltmeter. I would start with the WD breaker. If it checks out, you need to find out what circuit your washer is actually on. The good news is that it's not too difficult to pull wire from your panel to the WD. Good luck.

Obviously,they mislabeled the breaker panel. Turn your dryer on and start flipping breakers off till you find the one that kills the circuit. Then you will need to find out what is really on the breaker that is labeled washer/ dryer. Could be something not so obvious, such as the engine pre-heat.

I'll be flipping breakers this weekend to see if I can find the correct one. I'm not so good with a multimeter, not really sure how you use them but I do have one.
