Electrical question

I have an Ď07 Bounder 38n diesel. We just took our second trip for 2 1/2 weeks. The day prior to leaving everything worked fine. TVís, outlets, etc. On the way down we stopped on the first night and bam, neither TVís, sat system, dvr, and several outlets had no power. We took it in to a Camping World and they spend an hour troubleshooting and said the gfci in the bathroom wasnít getting power to it, and it supplied power to the other affected outlets. He said it would take at least two more hours of troubleshooting, at like $130 an hour, and he couldnít get to it until the next day. We decided against it and went on out trip. Upon arriving home today I plugged it in at home and my panel now shows an unknown fault and the charging system doesnít come on. Has anyone run into this before. I believe the warranty I bought covers the electrical, to include the inverter, but I have to confirm Monday before making an appointment for repairs. I am handy around older cars and such but all these electronics are beyond me.

Look for a circuit breaker on your inverter.

The GFI outlet in the bathroom is the first outlet in a daisy chain of outlets that are within 6' of any water source. Bath, Kitchen, outside, outside storage areas. usually about 6 outlets. It has test and reset buttons on it.

There will be a breaker in the power box labeled gfi. Use a multi-meter and see if it has power to it. The GFI outlet in the bath will not reset without power to it.

You may also have a GFI breaker. It will have a yellow test button on it. If so equipped, turn it off and back on to reset.

Check the GFI on the inverter.

You did not say if you were running the generator or using the inverter when you stopped. That bears on the situation!

Similar thing happens to us. Found a tripped gcif in a basement compartment, location for an exterior entertainment set up.

When i received our new FW Storm i discovered all the electrical connections in the CB panel were loose and a couple of lines were wired wrong. I would check this also. Very poor quality control on my coach.

I had tried with the generator on and just the inverter on battery power. When we got to The rv Park it also had the problem on shore power.

Thanks

There were three circuit breakers on the side of the inverter. I could not find any others. I reset all those, turned off all the power, unplugged from shore, and turned batteries off. When I plugged back in and turned everything back on the gfi in the bathroom was clicking. I reset it and everything worked. Not sure if something reset when I turned everything off. I couldnít see the panel for what the three push button breakers were on the side of the inverter, two of them appeared to be popped out but didnít go back in when I pushed on them so not sure if they reset or not. In any case the charger is now working, the bathroom gfci and all the tvís and outlets all have power, so I will just have to watch it close.
Thank you everybody for your responses.
