Outlets not working

Hello. After a trip to dump our black water, half of our outlets into longer worked. We reset the breaker as well as the fuses. No change . We were told that some Thors have 2 GCIF outlets . We can only find one , but it will not work . The red light on it works , but the outlet will not . Any advice ? Thank you !

It will probably help if you tell us what year and model rig you have...

...And welcome aboard!

Welcome to the forum. Usually there will be a gfi outlet in the kitchen area and one in the bathroom. Anywhere there might be water.

...But you still have to re-set them manually!

Are you on shore power or gen? If one works ok and other does not, it is most likely your transfer switch. Then I suppose if there is a complete failure of the TS, you may not have any power. Although, I think the TS fails in one of the positions.
If you have checked that all breakers and GFI's are ok, you will have to track it down. Mine power failed without warning and I tracked it down to the outside shore power receptacle wires were loose.

My experience - a red light on GFCI means 'tripped'... (My sticks/bricks kitchen has that variety...) Those with a light indicating 'on' have been green... (Recent Lowes purchase used in garage shop has that variety.)


The GFCI outlet will protect all 'downstream' outlets as well - so one bad/tripped GFCI in an RV will take out multiple outlets in the bathroom, kitchen, and outside. Most Windsports will only have one GFCI from factory protecting those locations - and typically in the bathroom.


If it won't reset - try replacing it.

2018 ACE 30.3. Mine did this too, gfci in bath comnects to other outlets inside and to the one outside. Got rid of it, replaced it with a regular outlet, all works fine.

If it has a red indicator light, then it has power, but something is causing it to continuously trip where you cannot reset it.

Not what I would recommend... There are good reasons for the GFCI to be there - protecting you and your family/guests is at the top of the list.


They do fail - but are easily replaced. If a new one continues to trip, then there is a problem that needs to be fixed to avoid shock potential. Often a wet outlet in that case - the outdoor one being the prime candidate. Or a bad appliance plugged in.

I found I could not reset the GFCI outlet with my fat finger. The only way to fully push the reset button was with some kind of thinner digit... in my case, a ballpoint pen.
