I figure for a few bucks I'll go ahead and do it. No other reason than that...
I've found that most RV manufacturers tend to put in a lot of outlets, but many of them are hooked up in a series configuration, ie outlet 2 receives its power from outlet 1. In most areas except the kitchen this usually isn't a problem. The easiest way to detect this is turn off all the breakers except main, and the circuit you are trying to map, take a lamp or other small 120v device, and see which outlets are live. If all your kitchen outlets are live, you know that you can't use the coffee pot and toaster at the same time, or the coffee pot may have to be plugged in by the dinette to prevent tripping.
