I have a 78 holiday rambler imperal limited, I have no outlet power in bedroom, bathroom and two plugs in living room one plug in living room does work. All my fues are new????


It could be a couple of things.
1.Buy a plug tester from Home depot or Lowe's start from the one that works and move over to the ones that don't work. The Plug tester will tell you what wire is lose. Most of the time its just wire nut. BEFORE WORKING ON WIRES MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF POWER AND UNPLUG BATTERYS. Power must been on to use plug tester.
2. lose wire it could be the neutral", from the power inverter
Or in one of the j-boxes of the plugs.

If this doesn't work let me know.

Have a ct87k. Got power at wall. Plug t-stat nothing.switches are both off for gas.


Those normally do not fail, they have a mercury switch in them. However there is a cravat they have to be mounted level and up side up. If that is the way it is mounted then just replace it.

The unit won't come on. I pushed the reset button but still nothing. The green light on the plug its self comes on but nothing on the air conditioner comes on.


There might be something wrong with the wiring connection. Check for open wire, burn-out wire or worn-out terminal lug from your control box. Unplug the unit and unscrew the control box to find the problem.If you found nothing abnormal plug it in and test with volt meter if power is coming at the end of the wires (connected to the plug). If no power at the end of the wires, it is broken near the plug. Cut the wire and reconnect it back to a new plug.

Hav aplug with the letters g x y which color wire to which letter


1) Look at chart on following link to identify plug:
http://www.elecordset.com/twistlockplugs-powercordsets.aspx

2) Something doesn't sound exactly right, are you sure the plug has just 3 terminals?
3 terminals are usually not labeled X Y G, they are X Y W or X Y Z
G is always ground, and X is always Hot, and Y is supposed to other Hot wire in 240V circuit.

3) It sounds like a 240Volt plug that usually has 4 terminals
G is ground
X is black Hot wire
Y is red Hot wire
W is white Neutral wire
240V circuit will work without the Neutral wire.

4) Add a comment and say what plug goes to.
Is this an air conditioner receptacle or clothes dryer plug or oven plug or twist-lock equipment plug?
What is this thing used for, and what does it plug into?

5) Electricians don't guess, they test
Add a comment and say what you are plugging into.
If you are plugging into existing power source, then you can test the outlet:
Use ordinary tester. Test each slot to round-shaped ground slot. If both slots light up when tested to ground, then circuit is 240Volt.
If one slot lights up, then that is Hot wire and circuit is 120Volt, and black wire connects to Hot.
If one slot lights up, then test Hot wire slot to other slot. If tester lights up, then other slot is Neutral, and White wire connects to Neutral.

NO POWER AT ALL!


Does the power supply have its own power switch?

It is located next to where the power wire plugs into the back of the PC.
