GFI dead?

With shore power all my 110 outlets work fine. Fridge, lights etc all run fine.

With dry (house battery) power all my 110 outlets DO NOT WORK. Fridge, lights etc all run fine.

Reset the breakers. Outlets still don't work.

Turned off the fridge breaker, fridge stays on (strange).

Does our GFI panel need replacing? Sounds like it's dead to me. It's the one under the couch in the 50 model made by GE.

Your fridge runs on 12v when 110 isn't present.

Did you reset the GFI outlet itself? If the GFI is tripped, no outlet will work.

I reset all 3 of the breaker switches on the front of the panel. Is there more? or a reset under the couch? I looked underneath and see the smart charger wizard deal with a green light and next to that looks like a breaker.. but i dont see the red push button on it.. other than that.. i dont know any other spot.

Good deal on the 12v fridge.. i thought i was going nuts.

I know this is a stupid question, but do you have an inverter? No inverter, no 110 volts without shore power. I can't remember if you mentioned having an inverter in other posts.
I always try to go for the basic first....

Yeah, the inverter is right near the heater ducting behind the couch to passenger rear. It's 1000 watts. And yes, it's wired up properly. I even heard the fan kick on one time when i was plugged into shore power.

This is what I was talking about:


If that one is popped none of your 110v will work.

Also when I had no ground on the shore power the invertor wouldn't charge- I don't recall if I had 110v but you might also check the shore power ground.

Ok, went and reset that socket. Still nothing. It's stuck in test mode now.

Ground on the shore power? But we are talking about dry use, not being plugged in. Wheres the ground for the shore power? I checked all the cables and lugs under the couch along with the huge leads coming from the inverter (ones grounded to the wheel well) and all is tight.

Ok, im thoroughly confused now. I just talked to the PO and he said that as far as he knows the 110 outlets only work when plugged into shore power or generator. He's unaware of any inverter underneath the bed portion of the rig. I just checked the work order from SMB for this rig and inverter is not checked as an item installed.

I know what an inverter looks like... and it even says 1000 watts on it! Am i losing my mind? I'll go take a picture of it.

Pics.. of what i think is the inverter... says good for 1000 watts on the sticker. Sorry for the bad cameraphone pics.







Guess it's not an inverter... its a power controller/converter.. http://www.progressivedyn.com/prod_deta ... 60a_2.html

Ok, so i can relax now and stop trying to figure out why my sockets don't work. Thanks for the help guys.
