Only Have Electric in 1/2 of Our Camper

by Mark Wright
(Bristol TN)

We have a 2001 Palomino camper. We had it plugged into the electrical outlet outside. The kids were in it one day popping popcorn and turned on the AC. It tripped the breaker in the house for the outside outlet. Now half of the camper does not have power.

We have checked the GFI outlet as far as we know there is only one. It was fine. The fuses that we have been able to find look fine. We do not know what else to do or where else to look.

ANSWER: Greetings Mark thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

In all likelihood you have tripped a circuit breaker inside the camper itself. I cannot tell you where that circuit breaker is located. You need to check inside the cabinets in your camper and also in any exterior storage compartments on your camper. The camper’s circuit breaker probably tripped at the same time that your house breaker did.

There is also a slim possibility that there is another GFCI outlet somewhere in your camper that may have tripped. Again look in the same areas that I suggested you look for the circuit breaker.
