Sorry! Will do thanks!
Incorrect. The Dometic RM2190 is 2-way - gas or 12 vdc. The Dometic RM2193 is the 3-way version that includes 120 vac operation.
So your lights work, is the battery connected and charged?
Your air conditioner runs.
Your outside 110 outlet and one inside 110 outlet have no power. I'm surprised that with two 15 amp breakers you have only 2 outlets.
You have a 3 way fridge but only you can determine if the 110 side of the fridge is hooked up.
Is this about it?
Once again - the OP's Dometic RM2190 is 2-way only, no 120 vac mode.
There still might be an outlet there, in case you wanted a diffrent model fridge.
Yes - Lights all work
Yes - A/C outlet works
Yes - Both the gfi outlet and the outside outlet have no power and i volt tested the wire coming out of the breaker and there is power coming out of the breaker they are wired up to?
I will volt test the wires to the fridge when i get home .
Usally the gfi is the one hooked up first in a series. And its usally the one closest to the converter box. You could unhook it and power up the other side of the outlet and see if that powers up the down stream outlets, at least it will give you a place to look.
Yeah, the user manual I was looking at was for multiple models including the 2190, but the installation manual does not list a 110 option.
The lights are upstream of the GFCI.
It all points to a GFCI failure, replace the outlet, carefully following the directions included with the new outlet.
Have you pulled the GFI and checked for power on the back side? There is a line side and a load side. It has to be wired correctly to function.
Thats what im thinking - but since it was working a few weeks ago and i havent moved camper - not sure how it could of happened. Im assuming that the wires from the breaker go directly to the outlet without any other stops or safety switches then its a short somewhere but woundnt a open wire cause a short and trip breaker?
Rodent. An open wire carries no current to trip a breaker. As long as the powered end does not touch ground, there is no short.
Ceiling lights in the OP's popup are 12 vdc and have nothing to do with any GFCI installed in one of the 120 vac circuits.
Turns out when camper was assembled, the electrical wire was pinched in between the bottom of the roof lift track rail and the bottom of frame. Over time, movement caused the wire to strip and finally make contact with metal and created a short on the circuit.
Thanks for all the help!
