You did not list your specific model number, so here's the link to Winnebago's electrical wiring diagram for all motorhomes they ever manufactured. Click on your year followed by specific model. Look on the list and select the TV Wiring diagram. Start there. If you need more info on other wiring, just select the diagram that corresponds to your need.

One idea is to take the tvs out and sell them.

According to the owners manual for your year/model, it is located in an outside storage compartment. Doug

Check for a reset button on your inverter if you have one



Most Motorhomes, if you have the smaller Inverter, power the entertainment systems. If it fails or the breaker ON the Inverter is tripped you lose power to the entertainment 120 plugs. FIND the Inverter and check its power and reset buttons. Doug


Any idea where the inverter might be located? 2017 Winnebago Sunstar.


OP: Found the inverter control panel. Maybe now I can trace the problem. When (if) I locate the culprit, I'll post that info. Thanks to all who responded.

I would seriously NOT suspect GFCI first on TV's

I would suspect an inverter.. In fact I have a 2nd breaker box (For the inverter) one of those feeds the TV's. and this computer.


Home is where I park it.

When you find the inverter, most likely you won't see something that looks like a breaker, more like a reset button. On mine it's really small and recessed. Look for a small round button that you push...my money is on the inverter...That said, is the key OFF??? ....Dennis

Do you have the OWNERS MANUAL for your RV? That manual from Winne is VERY complete and even shows a Pic of the Inverter. The pic shows the GFCI ON the front of the Inverter and the button you push to reset it. Doug

PS, the remote Inverter panel is not even close to the actual Inverter.

Thanks! Good information. But, not being an electrical engineer, not of much help. I'm to a point of taking it to CW and let their technician figure it out. But, again thanks...

Dennis, the key is off. Neither t.v. is viewable by the driver thus no need for ignition control. Re: the inverter. I agree that that's where the problem lies but I have no idea where it's located. Would it possibly require removing a panel (which I will not do) to access. If so, that would seem a bit odd.

Doug, I do have manuals and, yes, they are detailed. The remote control panel is right below the other controls but I have no idea where the inverter is located. The manuals do not provide that information.
