    4788: AC plugs

    My 2 plugs on the bar quite working all of a sudden. The other 5 plugs (salon and pilothouse) on the breaker are working. I reset all gfi outlets including the one in the bar on the flybridge. For the life of me I can’t figure out wjy these two plugs just stopped working. Thoughts? Thank you!

    Those are controlled by the GFCI outlet just to the right of the stove I think

      I reset all the gfi’s. I believe the bar outlets are port side outlet in the pilothouse.

        GFCI receptacle itself can go bad, fail...
        oftentimes, GFCI not tripped, but no current downstream.
        See if you have voltage on the line side of the GFCI, but no voltage on the load side of the receptacle.

          Are gfci usually at the end or beginning or a string of outlets? Or does it matter?

            GFCI's are at the beginning of the string of outlets. Anywhere else would require extra wiring.

              does anyone have knowledge to of the wiring for the Salon/Pilothouse AC wiring? Since the GFI Plug is port side pilothouse I know now that is plug 1/7, I assume the plug starboard PH is 2/7. Where does it go from there? The Galley or the bar? My problem is the two plugs at the bar stopped working but all the other plugs on the line work fine.
              I know that the plug by the bar sink is the end of the line and the plug portside aft is also the end of the line.
              Any thoughts will greatly be appreciated.

                I have a similar problem, the GFI at the counter beside the stove works and the outlet by the salon door works but no others. Also none of the stateroom outlets work, There is power on both sides of the AC panel circuit breakers. I will be troubleshooting it this weekend and it sure would help to know the sequence the witches are wired in. The schematic I have fron the 4788 owners supplement shows the circuit breakers but nothing downstream of them.

                  Since it's a looping system,
                  check the receptacle prior to your bar outlets, most likely fault is there.

                    Found some info that may help

                    120-volt Outlets

                    120-volt outlets are ground-fault protected (GFCI). In an outlet is not operating, first check the AC panel receptacle switch, and then check the GFCI outlet for the circuit

                      There's another GFI receptacle for the washing machine/dryer. Not sure whether that is the problem. For access, lie on the lower bunk, and open the small access cupboard door behind the dryer....

                      cheers

                        Update. Outlet PH starboard side was toast. Replaced. Issue fixed. I do not know what caused it. The Keurig is downstream. I am surprised that the outlet was still functioning.

                          An appliance that draws too much wattage like a portable heater, coffee maker.
                          Keurig in your case, peak draw is about 1500W app 12.5 amp.
                          Is that branch circuit on a 20amp breaker or 15?
                          Very dangerous situation... you dodged a bullet.
