Thanks for the welcome and electrical problem

Thank you for the welcome. I'm a first time RV'r and am still learning my way around the unit. Did a lot of research an I feel TS is a great RV, very happy so far. I have a small problem though: didn't test all the receptacles when I bought from a private owner. It seems they are dead from the bathroom to the living room on the driver's side. Everything else works great. The TV outlet in the mid section works fine. This is happening on shore power. Things I've done so far: reset the generator CB, replaced the GFI in the bathroom, looked for another GFI in the basement-can't find one, the inverter is a one circuit unit that works great on the passenger side. I've run out of ideas and may have to bite the bullet and take it to the RV service people. I'm handy but not an Electrician, am able to use testers, etc but not sure where to start testing outside of the outlets. Do you have any ideas? Would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks again for the welcome, looking forward to participating in the forum. Rich Burdick

I see you looked for another gfi. Just seems to me there may be one you over looked in the side of mh that your trouble is. So even if it seems like duplication of earlier effort, Think I'd look at every single out let hoping to find yet another gfci.I go a bith farther and look at every single plug. I recently went on a trouble call for a friend who seemed to have an electrical problem and it turned out to be a tripped gfci in a rather obscure place-- competly over looked by him. So good hunting.
Hope this helps

Several of my storage bins have electrical outlets.

You may want to call the owner and ask.

Hi Rich! Welcome to IRV2! We're glad you joined the gang!

I'm not familiar with your rig so can't help with your problem. Hope you enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

check the circuit breaker box, could be a loose wire.

Check the circuit breaker box for loose wires. Is their power going to the gfi?, if so gfi may be wired incorrectly.

Welcome to irv2.
Do you have a outside outlet expose to the weather they do work off GFI and the foam seal will collect water and corrode out the interior outlet connections.
Enjoy the foruma.
