Hi Eileen.
Not an expert on your model but there should be a GFCI receptacle either in the kitchen or the bathroom that the outside receptacle gets it's power from. Check and make sure that none of the GFCI receptacles are tripped. If they are reset and check your outside receptacle again and see if that fixes the problem.

Best regards
Roger

Just checked my 1999 T-1950. The outside receptacle by the door is fed by the GFCI over the bathroom sink, not the one at the kitchen sink as you would expect.

The bathroom GFCI is the one that controls my outside receptacle as well.

Far as I know, that's the only thing fed by that GFCI.

Hi Eileen,

Did you find your issue? Following along, I agree the bath GFI would run the outside outlet. The kitchen GFI only runs itself. If the bath outlet works and the outside does not, the bath GFI may be bad and not passing the power or a screw is loose on the side of it breaking the connection. It seems you are not getting any power to the outside outlet by your posts.

Hope this helps

John

H'mm, OK this is new info.

Confirming, tell us if any of this is not correct. Your current situation is:

1. The bathroom GFI will not reset.
2. You went outside to the fridge compartment and unplugged the 120 volt fridge plug from from the fridge area outside outlet, and still the GFI will not reset. This was a good trouble shooting thing to do.
3. Did you check the fridge compartment outlet for 120 volt ac power? It may be dead also, just need this confirmed it is has no power.


It may be possible your camper is wired a little different. The fridge compartment outlet, the outside outlet, the inside outlets, the power converter and the bath GFI outlet are "normally" all on the "general purpose" circuit breaker. It is possible they may have wired all outlets down stream of the bath GFI, there was some that may be that way.

In the current state when the bath GFI will not reset, have you checked the inside wall outlets, all of them? Yes/No? Does any of them have power? This excludes the microwave outlet and the kitchen sink area outlet as there on on separate circuits.

If the bath GFI will not reset and now all inside outlets are dead, the fridge is unplugged and that fridge outlet is dead too, this points to two possible things, well at least 2 anyway.

A. The bath GFI is bad and will not reset. It can be wired first in the circuit and feed all the rest on the down stream side of the GFI. I suspect this cause first.

B. There is a wire or outlet in that circuit that has the a wired crossed or skinned touching each other tripping the GFI. This is not impossible, but can be.

If you change the GFI and the problem still exists, then try this below. NOTE: When you unhook the wires from the GFI, make sure you mark which is "line" and which are "load". The whites and blacks look the same but they are different with no markings and must go on the new GFI the same exact way.

If you have access to someone with an ohm meter and someone who knows how to trouble shoot wiring, they can shut the AC power down and with the fridge cord unplugged, nothing plugged into any outlet in that circuit, (make sure there are no night lights or anything plugged into a wall outlet) and then, unwire (unhook) the black wire off the load side of the GFI. The power converter is still wired in the system and it can have resistance between hot (black) and neutral (white). Unhooking the load side of the GFI makes a clean wiring test.

Then, check the black, white and ground wires on that were on the load side of the GFI,
check to see if :

1. Check if the AC hot wire (black) is common to ac neutral (white) or ground (bare). It should not be common be to either
2. Check if the neutral is common to the ground. It should not be.

If any of them turn up being common to each other, then you have to start looking at each outlet for crossed wiring. Start at the downstream side of the GFI and one at a time figure out where the wiring is crossed. The inside outlets and the fridge outlet are speed boxes, there are no terminals in them like the outside outlet has. You can take the grey cover off the back and look inside. If you need help on how to get the gray cover off, ask and we can show pics. There are instructions on the side of the box.

Hope this helps

John

PS. What year is your T1950?

PS2. Since you changed the outlet outside, there may be metal camper siding touching a wire or screw terminal on the outlet that will trip the GFI. Sunline did not do a great job sometimes cutting the siding and the hole is jagged with metal hairs hanging off to touch a terminal. Check for this.

I edited the test in the post above in blue. The power converter is hard wired on the general purpose circuit.
