Outside Electrical Outlet

After this much time I thought I knew where all the fuses are located, but....I had a radio plugged in to the outside receptical and "I" popped the fuse where the trailer is hooked up. Reset the breaker in my garage and EVERYTHING works in the trailer except the outside receptical. Where is the fuse for that receptical or could it be something else? 2006 Bambi 19' Safari SE. Thanks

The outside outlet, as well as the one in the bath, should be on the GFCI breaker. In my Excella, the outlet for the converter is also on that circuit.

It can be easy to overlook that the GFCI has tripped because most of the time I don't have anything plugged into the bath outlet. The outlet in the bedroom in my Excella is there too, so that's how I usually catch it. My alarm clock goes dead.

Indeed numerous outlets are "run through" the gfci, find it, reset it, chances are very high that is the problem. In older Firewood products we had to "reroute" some outlets because the gfci would not carry the total current loads....

I have the same trailer and my outside electrical outlet is connected to a GFCI in the main panel. My GFCI failed a couple of years ago and I replaced it with a standard house GFCI from Home Depot. However, if all of your other outlets are working, you may have a second GFCI receptical inside that feeds to the one on the outside. Home bathrooms are commonly wired that way so all recepticals are protected in the room. Just a thought.
