Charging station

Was wondering if anyone has had problems with the charging station on the passenger side rear wall back bedroom area below thermostat. This is on a 2017 Vegas 24.1 was working then top two stoped then all four stopped. I checked fuses could not find any out but could not see any marked with that description. I checked Edís checklist but did not see it in there either could it be under chassis wiring? It is usb charging for phones battery packs etc. thanks for any advice on where to check.

You might try starting with that outlet by removing it and using a volt meter to see if it getting electricity. If it is then the outlet is the problem. If it isn't then you will have to try following it backwards to the source. Also might check to see if it is connected to another GFCI outlet in your coach that might have tripped. There is usually one in the bathroom and near any water source inside the coach(sink area). The GFCI outlets have a push button to test and reset the outlet.

It seems like a few folk posted the same problem. They removed the outlet and found the wires came loose.... pluged them back in (Perhaps added some tape to hold in place?) and all was fine.

Checked the wiring only has small gauge wire one red one black not loose sealed in Each outlet , I can’t see where it goes but guess it is 12v . Can’t figure out how to add pictures checked gcfi they are all working not tripped. Guess I will just replace both sections.

Those have built in fuses but are Low amps. Likely blew them. Order replacements with a higher amp.

That very same outlet in our '17 Axis 25.2 became very hot one day when recharging a phone so in order to prevent a fire I removed it and replaced it with a better quality outlet. That said, just about everything today is made in Communist China, so quality is one of those terms that just doesn't mean much.
