It seem to be a loose connection because just before it went out it off and on and then off for good

When you checked the breakers did you trip them and reset them? If so you have a wiring problem somewhere, or a receptacle with bad wire connections.

Either go to the Thor customer center website and sign up with your VIN to download all documents for your coach, or
Call Thor Customer Service with your VIN and ask them to email you the wiring diagrams for your coach.

If your sink is next to the door as in pictures I have looked at, Then the outlet over the door is on a GFI circuit. Any outlet within 6' of a water supply is GFI protected. Other out lets can also be put on it for convenience of wiring. Check your GFI outlet in the bath.

Well I figured it out. My RV was a rental b4 I got it and it appears that someone prior to me overloaded the circuits and burnt 5 of them. Cut them all back to good wire and reconnected them and all is good.

That shouldnít be possible! The breaker is supposed to trip before you can burn wires from an overload. Perhaps it was a loose connection at your outlets. You might check a few of the originals that are still working. Perhaps the ďskilled electricianĒ that wired your coach was in a hurry that day!

That is very much possible. See it all the time. Breakers trip on overload. Not from over heating. A loose connection will cause over heating but not overloading or shorting.

You said the breaker should trip before burning wires. That is true BUT what I said is wires will get hot and burn without tripping the breaker.

Isnít that why the new homes now have arc-fault breakers instead of just GFI? I understood that an arc-fault breaker would trip if the connection starts to overheat from being loose.

That is correct. If they were installed in our RV's, none of us would ever have electric in our units.
