THOR #16758
Outside Television Power

We recently purchased a used 2015 Thor A.C.E 30.2 The outdoor television has no power to it??? The power chord goes through a small opening where the rest of the cables pass and then disappears. I have no idea where this power chord goes and figured I'd ask before I start drilling holes.

I have checked every fuse and circuit breaker I can find. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Tom

It plugs into an outlet on the other side of the wall. No need to drill holes.

Tom I donít have the same model but mine goes through the wall and it comes through under the bathroom lavatory. From there it strings over a separation wall into another small compartment where there is an electrical outlet it plugs into. Hope it helps, I just changed out all 3 Sucky TVs and got rid of the Axxera trash too. Life is now much better when ďroughing itĒ. Lol

Also I know this sounds crazy, however you might check your GFI outlet to see if itís popped. I had a similar problem with my old Axxera and I checked the store/use switch several times and every breaker at least twice and finally noticed the GFI in the bathroom had popped. I reset it and the power came on to the Axxera. It shouldnít have anything to do with it but it did.

Yes
The outside TV is connected inside to a hidden GFI outlet
Generally on inside wall directly behind outside TV, hidden by cabinets.
Because itís on the GFI circuit, the one & only GFI breaker is generally the bathroom outlet which controls the 6-8 GFI outlets.

So, if you have an Inverter that came stock with the Coach, generally the GFI circuit is not connected to the Inverter line and can only be powered via genny or 110 volt shore power.

That is, if you want your outside TV to run off the Inverter youíll need to add an extension outlet with junction box off the standard outlet line. Then plug in outside TV to the new Inverter powered outlet.

Itís a fairly straight forward process. You just gotta think it thru.

Thatís what I did in my Vegas.

I have the same model and just went thru the cabinets while installing a sound bar and subwoofer for the outside tv. Removed the drawer directly under the stove and there is an single outlet attached to the cabinet on the right. Check it with an electrical meter then try the GFIs and make sure they and or the breaker is not tripped .

Outside Television Power

Thank you all, Everyone of your suggestions has been helpful.
After being stumped for a couple days I found the outlet by removing the cupholders situated behind the couch and directly behind the outside television.
The outlet has no power and as one of the reply's pointed out I've checked every breaker and fuse twice.

BUT the GFI in bathroom suggestion makes total sense. I will try that after work today and let you all know.

Thank you
T
