Electrical Outlet Issues...

Gosh, I hope some people can offer some help! We have just purchased a 2005 Jayco 27 ft travel trailer. We just got back from taking it out on the first adventure. After the first day, some of the outlets stopped working. The three in the master bedroom area, and the outlets where the tv/dvd plug into. We have tried to reset, now that we are home, hubby has replaced all the fuses. As well he put in a new gfi outlet, now none of the plugs are working! Needless to say, he is not happy. All outlets were working, I used one of them for a hair dryer, and we had our Bose dock plugged in. Now no power in them Any help or directions would be wonderful, as we aren't super handy people!!!

You stated your hubby replaced all the fuses. Did he reset all the breakers? The outlets work off of 120v which would be shore power. The outlets do not work off of the 12v battery.

He did re-trip all the breakers, and its not going off the battery...we are still puzzled!

Verify that the GFCI is not tripped. If not, you have a loose wire somewhere in the chain. VOM time. Be careful!

ddavy, This happened to me....sort of. My outlets would work, then they wouldn't work. Long story short there is an electric post or panel behind the fuse box where all the electric is plugged into. Mine came loose enough that when it was touching the panel, the effected outlets would work. But if the trailer was moved the lines would seperate from the panel and the outlets wouldn't work.
Hope this helps.

First of all - welcome to the forum! Glad you have you. If you get a chance, come on over and introduce yourself in the new member forum.

I would Contact Jayco directly and see if they will send you the 120 volt wiring diagram for your trailer. From that you should be able to tell the first outlet in the chain. I would start there and work backwards. Does anything work at all on 120 volt? I would also unplug the trailer and see if you can see behind the cabinet where the wire comes into the trailer and goes to your power center and see if anything looks out of place. Not sure if you purchased it used, but if so the previous owner could have installed a surge protector or something in there as well that could have gone bad.

You mentioned that you are not super handy, so my recommendation is get with a local RV dealer and let them take a look. Hopefully it is something simple, but you dont want to take a chance.

Terry, that is exactly what I did!! I didn't even know there was a elec pole that everything plugged into behind the fuse box. But the RV dealership took care of it for me.

I don't like to mess with elec!! Except for plugging in my coffee pot. hahaha

I don't know, like I said, I took mine to the dealership and they told me that is what they had to do. And it is back behind the fuse box.

Mine has 4 screws one in each corner you pull those and the whole convertor pulles out all wires 120 volt and the 12 volt are terminated on the back side. Make sure that you have unpluged trailer from shore power as the whole backside will have live power on all terminals if you dont.

Husband was just out trying again. The case is not coming off, he says thatbthere is a little give in the middle. He thinks he will break it. He says that it shakes a little, can get his fingers in around it but if he pulls it he thinks its going to snap.
