Electrical problems

Hi and Help!
we have a 2007 cruiser 5th wheel, this a.m. the plug in by the kitchen sink popped and took all the plugins for the rear of the unit with it. Weinstalled a new plug in and it has power going to it but it won't reset. any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

You probably have two GFI outlets in your trailer and the other one needs to be reset also.

whatever caused it to pop needs to be corrected before it will let you reset. you probably have a short. if the outlet by the sink got water splashed in it, it will need to be dried out before the reset will work

Did you drive through rain lately? If so, there are two junction boxes under your slide (depending on model). They get water in them and the GFI will trip. You will need to pull the cover and dry things out. Let us know your rig year and model and we can help direct you to the location.

Glad you found the issue. I drilled a small hole in the cover so it won't happen to me ...again!

I had the same problem on mine. The box filled while driving in a rain storm. Drivers side, right behind the slide. Definetly not water tight.

I find it hard to keep water out of waterproof enclosures, so I tend to put drain holes in the bottom of any box mounted outside.
