Depends on what this is. If you have an inverter I would check that breaker. IF NOT, I would check the service breaker that controls that GFCI. A meter would help you narrow this down quickly.

wHich Brewer is it that controls GFCI
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Neither GFI are working. there is two
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Then check the breakers on the inverter. Most likely something tripped there. Are you hooked up to shore power or using the generator?

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Check the service breakers at the inverter and see if those need to be reset.

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

On the inverter?

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Usually there are two.

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

It may be in the automatic transfer switch and you would need a multimeter to test that. One side may not be working. What is the make and model of your inverter?

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Are you still there
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Yes...........do you have a multimeter? It would take one to test the transfer switch.

There is no power to the GFI in bathroom or block heater
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

You need to test the automatic transfer switch...........can you do that or will you need a tech to come out and assist you?

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Where is it? On the left hand side( drivers side)
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I can test it
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

It is at the junction of the shore cord and the lead into it from the generator. IF you have a shore cord reel, that can be the problem as well.

Sorry we got your message on phone but not here. fUll power at transfer switch
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

On both legs? How about coming OUT of the transfer switch towards the load center?

Ask Your Own RV Question
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Is this a 30 amp service (3 prongs) or a 50 amp service (4prongs) and do you have a cord reel or not?

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Where do I test that exactly
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
50 amp and cord reel is manual
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

At the transfer switch once you have removed the cover. The ATS should be close to the reel.

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

I have seen them inside a service bay once you take one of the wall panels down to expose that and the inverter on some models.

aM I looking for a resettable fuse or a switch.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

NO.........the automatic transfer switch is a large box about 12" square and 6" thick. Black or silver.

Tested 124 volts outgoing
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

So you found it? IF so, what do you show AT the main breakers in the load center? Two of them.

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
125 volts
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

At each one?

Ask Your Own RV Question
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

IF you have good AC voltage at BOTH of the main breakers, then it has to be a bad feed breaker or bad GFCI. BUT, testing with a meter can lead to a wrong conclusion as it can't measure under load. Some breakers will open up under the least load.
