Customer Question
Hello. This morning I...

Hello. This morning I had a space heater on and then tried to dry my blow dryer. It blew the breaker but I can’t reset gcfi.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

No. Everything has been running fine until I did this. Is there another gcfi outlet to reset?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your RV?

I think 2018 cedar creek Hathaway

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Turned off each breaker one at a time and tried to reset gcfi in bathroom.

Normally a GFCI will not reset if there is a wiring problem or no voltage is going to it. Make sure you disconnect the shore line, turn the breaker OFF at the supply post, plug back in and then turn the breaker on the supply post back on.

I would also go around the RV and make sure you are not missing another GFCI, they are normally in the bathroom and or galley but can be located just about anywhere else including the outside.

IF you have an Inverter you want to check that as well for a tripped breaker, an inverter allows you to have AC power when you are dry camping NOT plugged in. Most inverters have one or two breakers on them, they can be round buttons or small switches.

Beyond that I would isolate the AC power and start checking each outlet, look for any melted or loose wires.

Hope this points you in the right direction.
