Most trailers are required to have a GFCI RECEPTACLE where people come in contact with water.

My 2005 5th wheel trailer has a GFCI receptacle in the kitchen, bath room, bedroom vanity area with sink.

My outside EXTERNAL 120VAC Receptacle is slaved to the kitchen GFCI receptacle.

Here's what I would do. I would try to isolate the issue and it likely won't be easy without a wiring diagram but you can do it. Get a pad and pencil

Shut off all the breakers.
Turn them on one at a time, noting on your pad what each one controls (as best you can) trying to find out which breaker controls what, you will kind of make your own diagram. Turn that breaker off and try the next one.

*Hopefully* you will get one breaker which seems to do nothing. This would then be the suspect circuit and I would remove the panel covering the breakers and check that breaker to insure it is working and the wires are connected properly.

If you do not find a breaker which does nothing, then the problem is in the wiring between the outlets. I would then remove each outlet and check the wiring.

Of course being under warranty, send it back to the dealer to be repaired is an option as well, but if you are able to isolate the issue it will be far easier to describe.

That is not correct. When you have 50 amp service, you have 2 120 volt 50 amp lines, for a total available 100 amps at 120 volts. When you have 30 amp service you have 1 120 volt 30 amp line. On a 50 amp rig, each leg of the 120 ( this has to be phased) will provide power to roughly 1/2 of the 120 volt outlets. All your 12 volt outlets will work on one leg. When you use a 30 amp dog bone, you will only power 1 AC and a portion of the outlet, not all. There is no way to "tie them together", if there was, then you could use either of your AC which is not the case. Using the 30 amp dog bone will give you 1/3 total power available of the 50 amp service.

I will not enter into an argument over this but your information is NOT accurate and only adds to the confusion.

External Outlet quit working (fuses and breakers good)

I agree with Tnchuck . This is what a 30-50 dogbone adapter does. I have camped in 30a parks and even have a 30a at my home feeding my camper thru a dogbone.
ALL outlets and appliances work, just not at the same time!

Without getting into the details, I can say with 100% certainty that my 30A / 50A adapter provides power to BOTH legs in my 5th. 100% of my outlets and both A/C's receive power. Of course I can't use it all at the same time, but every single outlet, A/C, appliance etc receives power.

On my rig the GFCI outlet. Right in front of the entrance door feeds the outside outlets.

Good luck with your trip. I don't think this is some great mishap. Let us know when you find it.

I absolutely will. Get one heck of a turn out on this thread and all is appreciated.

Do you have the outside kitchen? If so did you check the outlets out there?

now beginning to agree with nylyon there might be a breaker that over heated and quit working or a loose wire to the breaker ... if you diagram as he said with a 120 plug tester what goes to what breaker maybe you can isolate the one that isn't feeding the plugs that aren't working ... I don't know how many plugs are attached to each breaker but the amount not working sounds about right to me .... keep us posted sorry we haven't been able to help you figure it out
