brownboy:
I been living in my '94 Holiday Rambler free spirit for a couple years now...its not all been peaches and creme to say the least however I was wondering if I might get some help with my latest greatest...Yesterday while at work the temp dropped 15 degrees in about a half hour when I was able to get home i was froze up...anyway its happened before but this time the pipes in the rambler were froze not just my hose...anyway i used my heatgun at the outside outlet to thaw a few things ,,, everything was as normal as could be...I got up for work in the morning and again plugged my heat gun at the same outlet used it a little unplugged it and went to work...I get home today and again i plug my heat gun in same outside outlet and not power...I use another outlet and worked fine...I check my fuses and breaker and all check out fine...by my power converter there are some small rectangley shaped things to me they look like relays but when I google nothing comes up..theres a bank of about 10 of them...can someone tell me what these are and what they are called and could they be whats wrong...also my dining room light has not worked for a while as well as my wall lamps by my bed...seperate incident but same thing as no fuse or breaker malfunction..thinking they are all the same problem and suspect its them rectanguler thingys..
Also along with the outside plug not working my 2 in the kitchen stopped working and the biggy my hot water tank switch stopped working..the overhead lights and the ones under the cabinets work fine however..

HueyPilotVN:
Might be GFI outlets with a small square that you push in to reset

brownboy:
i wish that was it but they aint that kind

HueyPilotVN:
Your overhead lights are probably 12 volt.

Are you sure that anything 110 volts works?
