If yes then start working the chain of self contained protected outlets that are not working one by one till you find where the 120 volts disappears

If you donít have a meter then itís a guessing game and I donít like to guess
My husband knows how to do this, but canít find his meter naturally! Guess I need to go get him one!! Thank you!!!!

They are cheap and you can get them at many places. Like potato chips, ones not enough. I pulled mine in the house a few days ago; 5 of them. RV; 2.

Have 1 in the house, 1 in my little shop & had one in the rv that's now in a box for the next rv.
Harbor Freight gave them away at one time with a purchase, although not the best meter but for around the house/rv they worked fine, a bona fide electrician wouldn't get caught dead with it though, & it was FREE!

Yep, Back when Harbor Freight was giving away a free something with a coupon on every visit, I wound up with about 10 or 12 of their red voltmeters. They're excellent for RV use, and if it gets wet, something falls on it or you leave it on a picnic table at a campsite, you don't feel the need to turn around, drive 50 miles and hope it's still sitting there.....

Funny, I have so many duplicates of some things like soldering irons. If I couldn't find it (or my BIL borrowed it AGAIN) I'd just buy one as they used to be cheap. I guess if you count the 50 year old "engine analizer" which was an analog dwell, volt, dc amp and ohm meter I have 3 multimeters.

I keep my quality meter in my tool box in the garage and when my 50+ year old Amprobe clamp on amp meter finally died I bought the HF one as a replacement. It lives in the truck tool box.

We started going through the outlets from the back forward checking for anything loose- The outlet next to the toilet in the bathroom had a loose wire. Thankfully, an easy fix!
