How Can it Be? 2 Plugs work, 2 Plugs dont

I have a 1999 Safari 25'. All of a sudden, two of the 110v plugs work and 2 don't. The kitchen and bathroom plugs stopped working, the bed and living area plugs continue to work. I'm baffled, please help. Thanks, Ben.

Maybe

I think they are different circuits protected by separate circuit breakers.

Are the kitchen and bath plug-ins GFCI plugs? If so the GFCI might have tripped....

Hi, this is your answer; GFI plugs are located in areas that have water. [kitchen & bathroom]

Last year I replaced all of my breakers, except the GFI (The GFI was $40 so I left it alone). Last week I had this very same problem. My GFI breaker tripped and would not re-set. I had to replace the breaker. I would highly suggest that anybody with an older trailer replace all of their breakers...makes a huge difference. Breakers don't always function or not function. They can also get weak over time and begin to shut off pre-maturely or function erratically. Fairly cheap preventive maintenance. The GFI breakers have 3 wires to them, not just the one that most breakers have. Be careful.

Thanks for the great responses. I believe all of you that its the GIF breakers. Only, the plugs don't have the GFI's in them. Is there a breaker box I can't find in the trailer? The only thing I can find is the 12v fuse box?

There should be a 120 circuit breaker box hidden in a closet or something.

The 110 outlets that are controlled by a GFCI breaker in the control box are just standard outlets and would appear just like the others. You need to locate your breaker box and check the breakers. This is almost certainly your problem. If you have an owners manual, it will tell you where the box is. It varies greatly in different model Airstreams. Look for a louvered panel because the breaker box is with the converter and has a cooling fan that needs to vent.

Thanks, Brian. I think I found it under the sofa in the back. Very hard to get to. There is a sealed box with two nuts/screws that I have to take off. It is next to the invertor. Does this sound like it?

It should be readily accessible through a little metal door. It is most likely very near where your shore power cable comes into the trailer. It will look like a miniature breaker box like the one in your house. One of the breakers will be a GFI.
