Does anyone know the routing of the 110vac wire for the outlet over the couch I know it goes behind the Refer, but where from there?

If it goes behind the fridge, it may run from the receptacle in the outside fridge compartment. I'm just guessing. The TCs I've had only had 3 circuits. A left and right 110V receptacle circuit and the air conditioner.

You can pick up a wall scanner that has stud, metal, and AC scan to trace the path.

On our TC, both circuits have a GFI. One of those could be tripped.

I parted out 2001 Lance 1161 and they used unique power outlets with press-in tabs. Assuming you have the same outlets, I would check them in the line as that IMHO is weak point.

Thanks for the reply, I have removed the **** outlet, but the problem is no ac in the wire.

I think Kayteg1 is talking about looking at the other outlets to see if you find a loose wire that exits a receptacle going (possibly) to the one that doesn't work. Many TC use insulation displacement receptacles where the wire is pressed into the outlet. Very similar to a Scotch lock connector. These aren't necessarily great connections. Also, make sure you check the one the fridge is plugged into.

What Joe says. Even my 1161 had several AC outlets, it had only 2 breakers and the line was going from outlet #1 to #2 to #3 and farther.
Meaning no power in outlet 3 might be result of poor connection in outlet #2

Generic 01 lance diagram

Likely not too helpful, doesnt show wire routing but shows daisy chain wiring mentioned, Physical routing on ours, not a lance, but cross over left to right in water tank box. On ours there's an AC junction box inside water tank box and also in one of the seat boxes, just pointing out there may be connections at other than receptacles.

From my memory Lance 1161 had GFCI over kitchen countertop and the extension went to bathroom and outside plug.
Interior plugs had 2nd breaker with no GFCI, than fridge and micro had additional breakers.
What really surprised me, when taking camper apart was finding battery combiner, or isolator in the system.
My Ford had charging circuit ignition-activated, but I read how lot of Chevy, or Dodge owners worry about discharging truck battery by camper.
Worth looking into hidden compartment, or read the manual if you have it to find if you might have a protection you are not aware about.
