Outlets Not Working

This is our 5th outing with our new 2015 White Hawk 25BHS and the two outlets on the bed platform and the outlet inside the entertainment center aren't working.

They are close together so I suspect they are wired in series without pigtails on the 1st and 2nd outlets in line. Has anyone removed an outlet in line to see how it is wired? I'm a licensed General Contractor and would do it if the TT wasn't so new and under warranty but because it is under warranty I will have to make an appointment and tow it to the dealership again.

By the way, it appears that ALL of the outlets are on just one 15 amp circuit breaker so be very careful with those electric heaters. Even if it doesn't trip the breaker, it could overheat the internal wiring.

Check your ground fault circuit in the bathroom. Prolly tripped.

I had a similiar problem on our older 5th wheel. I found out that the GFCI outlet in the bathroom had tripped. I reset the GFCI and all was good. The other outlets were apparently wired after this outlet.Hope this helps,

The only GFCI outlet is on the lower kitchen cabinet near the door. I just confirmed that it also controls the bathroom outlet which is not a GFCI outlet. The bedroom outlets and entertainment outlet are still dead after a reset but thanks for responding.

My older 5th wheel has three locations for the GFCI breakers. Kitchen Sink, Bath room Sink, and Wash-up area in Bedroom.

The GFCI usually has additional 120VAC Receptacles down the leg under control of the GFCI Receptacle.
