ELECTRICAL PROBLEM 2004 Holiday Rambler Vacationer 36DBD Mark 12-1-16  
I own a 2004 Holiday Rambler Vacationer 36DBD.
I have lost power from my GFCI receptacle on rear bathroom wall to all 110 volt receptacles in the coach.
I have 110v at the breaker and 110v to both the line and load side of the GFCI receptacle.

In troubleshooting:
I disconnected the wires from the load side of the GFCI receptacle (which feeds the coach) then ran a jumper from load side of the GFCI receptacle to the receptacle that the household refrigerator is plugged into and now get 110v to all receptacles in the coach.
I checked continuity on the wires from my GFCI receptacle on rear bathroom wall to the receptacle that the household refrigerator/positive on the white wire but negative on the black wire. I am told to look for a junction box between these two locations but I am unable to find it.
Would anyone have had this problem before that could offer help in solving my problem?

I called Monoco but they do not have a wire diagram for my coach, where can i find one?

1st I am unfamiliar with your floor plan so in generalities:

There are junction boxes hidden in places like the AC rough in in the ceiling, Behind the water heater, Any place a 120 volt option could be installed like a compartment that generator would fit in.

Next: It is common for 120 volt electrical to be hanging loose or unsupported in the belly and being unsupported break the copper inside the wire. If this is the case abandon the broken wire and run a new one. Yes a huge pain in the butt. We generally end up running a wire through the belly or through the cabinetry to by-pass the problem.

Last RV manufacturers in North America are not required to publish or provide or keep records of wiring diagrams.

And yes it is that Dumb.

Good Luck
