Hello,
i have a 2019 fleetwood pacearrow 36u

the two outlets one the main bedroom slideout have quit working.

I have checked each plug and the look ok
I have checked the breakers
i have check all GFI plugs.

We are getting ready to leave for a 1000 mile trip and i am really concerned about an electrical fire.

I realize that this is a pretty specific model question, but maybe someone has some info or ideas that may help me trouble shoot this

Thanks

frustrating, i know. i'll bet there's another GFCI outlet that you've either forgotten about or it's not in an obvious place. i had the same thing happen in a previous motorhome and finally found the tripped outlet in a basement storage compartment.

double check the gfi that you know about, some times they don,t reset, or could be a bad gfi.got a meter ? also check your breakers .

Slideouts are noted for causing electrical issues.....check under the slide if you can see any wiring.

Another vote for the GFI. We lost 1/2 our outlets once, everything seemed good. On the advice of an electric guy here (thanks Larry!) we changed the GFI and everything's been good since. That was years ago, so obviously it was the cause.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Buy a 3 light household plug checker with a button to check GFCI and check all RV plugs. Are the 3 lights on and does the button trip the GFCI plug?

You could have a loose wire or bad GFCI.

FULLY flip all CBs off and then on.

Check the circuit breakers on your INVERTER itself. This would be in a basement compartment. Mine had two circuit breakers and when when one of them tripped, I would always lose some outlets. These are not to be confused with any circuit breakers in your electrical panel. They are right on the front of your inverter.

Most liklely OK, but the load side wiring could be loose.

I'd plug in a 3 light tester with a GFCI trip button and make sure they actually trip.
About $20.

Have you tested ALL of the other plugs to determine that it is only those 3 that don't work?

yeah, all the plugs in the rig appear to work except the two in the slideout.
The slide out is solid underneath, so there is nothing to look at there.
I pulled out the two outlets and they appear to be connected ok, and there is only one 14/2 coming to both, so i am afraid I may have to get under the bed. (That should be fun).
