2022 Sequence right side outlets and microwave dead

Just brought it home and was using the microwave on generator. Girlfriend plugged in appliance on GFI outlet on same side as microwave. Power went out to the plugs and the electrical outlets. The GFI outlet will not reset. Tested all circuit breakers and fuses ( a couple of times) and neither do anything. Can only find one resettable GFI plug which I referred to above. The funny thing is the plugs on the left side work and one is labeled GFI protected but it’s not a resettable type plug. We’ll be taking it in but thought there may be an easy fix.

you probably have TWO GFCI circuits, sometimes the other 'master' outlet is in the bathroom, or maybe outside... there's no reason to 'take it in'.

Check front of generator sounds like 1 of the 2 breakers is tripped.

There is one GFI outlet that resets them all.

In my 2018 30A Freedom Traveler it is the one in the bathroom above the sink.

If it is tripped all the plugs on the left side of my main cabin go out. Everything on that circuit.

Fixed it

Thanks Wrapped. It was the generator circuit breaker. Once you flip it it takes a minute or so for it to take affect.

So the outlets that worked were on the inverter?

Not sure I know the answer. With my limited knowledge I thought the all the outlets were on the inverter. Doesn’t make sense to me that some of the outlets were working and not others, which included the resettable GFCI outlet. And a couple of the ones that were working had a sticker that said GFCI protected but the resettable GFCI outlet was not working. The microwave was out also so it wasn’t just the outlets.

The "non-resettable" GFCI labeled outlet(s) that have GFCI label are "daisy chained" in the same circuit as (usually) the bathroom outlet - which has the reset button. If ANY outlet in that daisy chain has a fault, it trips the bathroom GFCI outlet - and they ALL stop working.

The outlets in that circuit are GFCI labeled to let you know that. Otherwise, you'd be chasing your tail trying to find a tripped breaker!

P.S. The microwave is usually plugged into an outlet inside a cabinet.

Glad you're enjoying again, the working outlets were on your inverter and the GFCI outlets can't be reset without power to them.

The are probably wired wrong. Take back for repair. You probably should check all outlets and the fuse box to be sure all connections are tight. The tend to come loose. BUT BE SURE THERE IS NO POWER TO THE COACH!
