GFCI Breaker location?

BLUF: Hairdryer in Bathroom, blew GFCI breaker … somewhere.

I put this on the Entegra Owners Forum earlier, but no reply yet. So
seeing if the experts here may have a suggestion….

No outlet in the bathroom has the GFCI breaker reset, GC6 panel breakers all good, nothing tripped, outside TV compartment outlets are not GFCI breaker types, looked at the outlet in the basement, passenger side no GFCI breaker button, and don’t see any other outlet in the single basement compartment that we have that has a GFCI outlet/breaker?
So cycled the power for the MH, and still no power for the bathroom outlet, basement, outside TV.

Anyone know where maybe the GFCI reset breaker is for 2019 Entegra Insignia 37MB.

Will try and contact Entegra on Monday, if don’t figure it out by then.

Thanks in advance if anyone knows.

I have a 2018 Alante 29S. The GFCI breaker is the lowest breaker in the panel on ours. If you looked at the handle, it does not trip under the GFCI clearing. Just next to the plastic between the AC & DC side of the panel, there is a small reset button. You might need a flashlight to see it. Also, the reset will not work unless there is power to the panel. It will not reset if no shore or gen power.

Best Wishes!

Copy, in our breaker panel, the breaker has a TEST button that I have pushed to reset, as I thought that would be the GFCI breaker. but still no power.
Whatever it is powers the bathroom outlet and the basement storage area.

Test turns it off, may be a smaller button below or above that, possibly white. Or push breaker down and then back up.

Copy all, and did push breaker down and back up several times. Checked the voltage past the breaker and there is 120V….even threw the breaker to check, and there was no voltage present when off, so breaker is good. I’ll keep trying to trace down leg on that circuit to see if I can find the outlet that has the reset switch.

Have you checked all areas, especially the kitchen, to be sure you don't have another GFCI outlet somewhere (that is the first in line after the breaker panel) that feeds the outlet in your bathroom?
Your test of the breaker indicates it is fine and is feeding power beyond your breaker panel, after that point, the only (trip-able) interruption would be a GFCI outlet.

Update

Ok, no GFCI Outlets anywhere on that leg. So decided to take the bathroom outlet apart just to see…and I’ll be D@#$d the neutral and ground wires had pushed out of the cinch posts in this enclosed outlet. Must have been just enough pressure when I plugged in the dryer to have the wire pop out.

Pushed the wires back in the cinch posts really hard and reinstalled….everything works now…ordering another outlet just in case, a better one hopefully.

That all makes sense now that you found the problem. The outlets in these RVs are not the best quality by any means. It makes one wonder how many similar connections are loose.
At least you found it without a lot of effort, and it is a relatively inexpensive repair.

You will NOT FIND a wall outlet with a reset button on that circuit that has wall outlets labeled "GFCI protected"

Inside your power center panel is a COMBO AFCI/GFCI breaker that supplies power to all the protected outlets...

It is different from the usual GFCI setup found in Pre 2020 RVs

They reported that the bathroom outlet receptacle had the neutral and ground wires popped out of the receptacle.

My post was to inform folks that HAVE NO WALL MOUNTED GFCI outlet that their RV is using the NEWER STYLE AFCI/GFCI combo breaker..

** There WILL BE NO WALL MOUNTED GFCI OUTLET with RESET switch installed downstream.

That is why that breaker has the "test" function on it...
