2006 Intl CCD 25ft GFI Switch Location??

Power went out in all elect outlets in Galley, Goucho, Bathroom of trailer. Only outlets working currently are in bedroom. Lights, fridge, everything else working fine. This happened sometime during the nite after I plugged in a lil floor heater..before this everything worked fine. Was told to look for GFI switch/reset cant find anywhere.
My fear is it was relocated during the trailers prior life as a commercial trailer. Anyone have an idea where to locate this switch?
Thanks
LilNomad

look in the 120v breaker panel. look for a breaker that has a "test" button on it or one that wiggles a bit when the lever is pushed to "on". flip it all the way to "off" and then back on.

Hi

Did you ever figure this out? We have a 05 28ft CCD and the same thing just happened. None of the breakers are tripping anything and I can't seem to reset the power to the outlets.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Found it finally

Turns out that there is a gFI breaker underneath our sofa behind the actual panel. It's kind of hidden so I never noticed it before. You should just have to reset that and all is well. At least it was for us.

WHAT ELSE is running on that same circuit? Resistance elements (things that make HEAT from electricity) are very big users of juice. Too many on one circuit trips the breaker: Here's how to trip your breakers:

Have your Water heater on electric instead of gas
Use a microwave full blast
Run a small heater while also running a heat pump on HEAT.
Blow dryer going?
Toaster, electric skillet, induction burner or other electric cooking device.

The heater all by itself shouldn't pop the breaker - unless it's loose or defective - but add two of the others on top and Kablowee!

Here is a test - If you have a long heavy duty extension cord and your fantastic fan has a pull out screen, pull the screen, open the fan cover -but keep the fan off, thread the cord out to the power stand and plug it into the 15/20 amp outlet. Close down the lid on the fantastic fan as far as it'll go manually. Plug in the heater and crank it on high. Turn on whatever else you normally were using when the heater popped the breaker. If the breaker on the campground's power hookup blows before you add any other load, the heater is definitely at fault. If the other appliances cause the breaker on the pole to pop, then you've exceeded the voltage at the plug in point. If something still blows the breaker IN the trailer... having isolated the fan would prove the problem is in the trailer wiring, not the fan.

If the fan runs fine on a separate feed... you're just not used to having to conserve electricity. You went over 30 amps and the circuit breaker did what it's supposed to do to prevent fires.
