Question outlet for fireplace does not have power

On my 2013 Crossroads Sunset 25' travel trailer, I have a fireplace connected to an outlet inside the cabinet below it. The only repair that has been made recently was to replace the battery. After replacing the battery, we had some electrical issues (i.e. blown fuses 40 amp and a blown fuse in the sound system). These have been replaced. However, we are unable to resolve the issue with the outlet that the fireplace plugs into inside the cabinet. Tester shows no power is coming to the wires for this outlet. All fuses have been checked, all other outlets and electrical components are working fine. Any suggestions?

Hello and welcome!

Please add the make,model and year of your camper to your signature. This helps us to better help you.

You say that you replaced the battery and had some blown fuses. That usually happens when the battery is hooked up backwards. With the colors of the battery cables it is easy to do and is a somewhat common occurrence. That said the 12 volt system has nothing to do with the fire place.

Have you checked the breakers - turn off then back on? Sometimes a tripped breaker is hard to see. Also is your camper 30 amp or 50 amp? If 50 amp are you plugged in at home and is it wired correctly? One other thing is the fireplace in a slide? If so check the junction box under the slide.

Is this TT new to you or have you owned it for a while? On my TT (30 amp service) there is a three position rocker switch, positions are; 1) water heater 2) off 3) fireplace. I can not run water heater on electric and fireplace at same time, its one or the other.

The fireplace is in partition between bedroom and living room/kitchen. the partition has the TV at the top, the fireplace in the middle and a sound system and cabinet at the bottom. The fireplace plugs into an outlet in the cabinet area.

PSG; It sounds like your setup is very similar to mine. The fireplace outlet on mine does not have power unless the 3 position rocker switch is flipped to fireplace mode.

The toggle switch on my 2014 Sunset Trail Reserve is located on the panel just inside the main door way mounted on the side of the cupboard. The panel includes switches for the awning, slide, water/holding tank monitors, water pump, hot water tank and maybe a few other gadgets. As previously mentioned the hot water tank and the fireplace cannot both be on electric at the same time. The hot water will work on both or either gas and or electric but the electric must be shut off before the fireplace will operate.

Check this switch and shut the electric power off to the hot water tank and the fireplace should operate.

Outlet

I have been dealing with this.. there is a relay ( mine is accessible behind the drawers that are behind the electrical panel) that flips power from the water heater to the fireplace. Toggle the switch between them and listen for it. My issue was poor wiring and a lost neutral. I'm sure the relay is susceptible to failure also. Mine was in a metal junction box mounted to the wall in the void. It was hard to access.
