black gfi outlet dead

my 2016 interstate lounge black gfi outlet is dead, will not reset.

Its in the 20amp breaker.... inverter..........black gfi (located behind drivers seat)..... front TV and Blueray player circuit. ( tv and blueray not functioning as a result of the gfi not resetting)

Inverter seems to be functioning properly green lite flashes once per second.
Have not reset inverter yet.

Have reset the 20amp breaker at the start of this circuit.

Has anyone had any success in making this repair. Any input is appreciated.

Joe

Don't have an Interstate but did have problem with gfci circuit. A new breaker from Home Depot cured the problem.

Joe, Look on top of the Magnum inverter, there will be a small 5 amp ? circuit breaker.
A reset should fix the problem. The outlet won't power much without tripping.

I have 2020 Interstate 19 and appear to have same problem. GFI Test doesn't work and all the GFI outlets dead. Inverter appears to be working powering other outlets (TV) on the non-GFI side/circuit. Tried toggling 20A GFI circuit breaker but to no effect.

GFI Circuit Out 2020 Interstate 19

Inverter is green and appears to be working; test on the GFI circuit breaker is dead and no power on the circuit--3 outlets including microwave

Any idea?

The Airstream Owner's Manual should be a lot more empathetic that nothing that draws more current than electronic items should ever be plugged into the two TV outlets and the outlet in the over-cab compartment. Also, during the purchase walkthrough, techs should explain why. I doubt whether very many do.

I do have a mini-PC mounted on the wall over the desk in my GT and connected to the TV below as a monitor. Nothing else gets plugged into those three outlets.

I ran #12 wire and installed an outlet on the front side of the galley counter so that I can safely run a ceramic heater in the front of the coach in cold weather. If I want to use the AC charger for my Yeti under the desk, I run the cord across to my new outlet and cover it with a rug for safety. The photo was before I installed the plate on the outlet.
