    1984 Empress Triple E Motor Home - 454 motor.
    I was plugged into an electrical outlet running a floor heater, when I unplugged the floor heater I noticed a small spark. After that I could not get any of the pluggins to work. Below is a list of the things I have tried to get them working. Everything else in the motorhome seems to work ok.

    - Flipped all the breakers on converter box
    - Replaced all fuses in converter box
    - Checked all fuses running from battery location
    - Pulled off all electrical outlet covers looking for a reset switch

    Here are a few questions that I have

    - Are the only breakers and fuses on the converter and in the battery location, or are there others I should be looking for.

    - Will my battery meter read full when I am plugged into a outside power source (it doesn't)

    Any suggestions on what to check would really help alot, I am completely stumped on figuring this out. Please suggest anything

    What was your source of power? Generator or plugged into external power? Or perhaps you have an inverter powering your outlets (although I imagine you wouldn't be able to run a heater long on that :) )

    Is it a 12 volt socket or a 120 volt socket where you had the problem? All the steps you mention seem oriented towards the 12 volt system.

    Ground fault outlet anywhere (near sink?) that might feed the rest of the outlets?
