Hi all!
I have a 95 GB Maverick 24' that I bought several months ago. Everything is working fine except all the receptacles and the fridge on the passenger side(water heater fires up). I have flipped breakers on and off several times with no change. Everything on the driver side works fine. I have checked the fuses under the dash and all is good(nothing under the hood). I have looked in the GB owners manual and it tells you nothing. PS there are no GFI receptacles in the MH but there is a receptacle that has be removed and wire nutted off and covered in the bathroom on the drivers side.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

I bet you only have one circuit and they dead ended it at that outlet. I would check with a meter and see if you have power to it.
" and the fridge on the passenger side(water heater fires up)." Don't understand what you are trying to say?
Allso are you on shore power when doing your test?

OR are there 4 wires with two black under a wire nut and 2 white wires under a wire nut ?

When fliping the breakers have you confirmed that there is power to the load side of the breaker as well as the feed side?

Generally speaking, the 120 volt water heater is on a circuit alone. The 120 volt refrig heater element is hard wired or plugged into a multipurpose circuit.

A loose connection either hot wire or neutral may be the problem. Vibration while driving tends to cause that.

Certainly as suggested above, the outlet that was removed may have disconnected a string of outlets. Circuits are often wired from one outlet to the next in a string.

Sometime owners remove a faulty GFI outlet and bypass it using wire nuts to connect the remaining outlets. Wire nuts tend to loosen when there is vibration. Crimped connectors are more reliable.

Some motor home systems are more complicated. If yours is, there are many other possibilities.

I wish you good luck and happy trails ahead!

Thanks everyone for the information.

1. It is on shore power.
2. 2 black wires are nutted together as are the white wires nutted together.
3. Have not but am going to check the current to both sides of the breaker.


Thanks
Mike
