Electrical Problem

Hello. I am having an issue with our 2001 Jayco Eagle motorhome. The rear compartment receptacle and the two kitchen receptacles are not working. The kitchen is also located in the rear of the RV. We have lights and power to everything else in the motorhome. The breakers all seem to be working and none of the fuses are blown. Would anyone have an idea what else the problem might be? Is there a ground wire somewhere for these? Thank you for any information you can provide.

Terry

I have heard of other people finding one of the outlets were GFI and it was tripped and the whole line didn't work. Just throwing out an idea.

Kitchen receptacles should be GFI protected, as anything around water is supposed to be on a GFI protected circuit. As Shokyle1 suggested, check all your receptacles for a reset button and press it. If it opens again, you have a shorted out circuit somewhere.

Thanks, but there isn't a GFI in the kitchen, only the bathroom. Also, the rear compartment doesn't have a GFI either.

These outlets are typically wired in a series where one feeds the other. Since the kitchen and the compartment are in the rear, the outlets are probably wired together one to the other, and may be fed from another close by outlet that still appears to work.
You will have to remove each outlet and examine the connections, a wire has either broken or come loose. You will need a multimeter and the knowledge to test continuity and voltage. I would start with the compartment outlet, if the wire ends at that outlet you know it is the end of the circuit.
If you don't feel comfortable with this be safe and call an electrician.

Those kitchen recepticles should ordinarily be GFI protected somewhere, if they're not tied to the bathroom GFIC then make sure they are not GFI protected in your panel. It shoudn't be the case but I've seen GFI's tied in series with the trip being in an outside outlet.

I'm an electrician. The kitchen receptacles are probably fed from the bathroom GFCI receptacle. Push "Test" and the reset button should pop out, then push in the reset button and see if all receptacles are working.

Thanks everyone for your help. I found the issue. The two kitchen receptacles are connected to the outside rear receptacle. One wire on a kitchen receptacle was loose. Now all are working.

Nice thanks for the update many people do not do that and you wonder how it turned out.
