microwave dedicated outlet issue

looking for suggestions. For a problem with our 2013 36RL. The microwave plugs into a dedicated outlet above the stove. The outlet is only putting out 60 volts. The breaker tests good. But outlet is only getting one leg. I am not knowledgeable on electrical issues. Any ideas as to what the problem may be.

We had a similar trouble with the kitchen slide receptacles and traced the trouble to a splicing connector at the rear of the coach. The driver's side rear slide has three circuits coming from the power panel:

1. microwave
2. electric fireplace
3. entertainment center, pantry, outlet by range, and refrigerator and ice maker.

Take a look at this post for more information

Also check the outlet, these are the cheapest type on the market & may not be making a good connection. Be sure to turn off the shore power breaker before attempting any repairs & if not comfortable working with electricity, ask someone nearby by for help.

microwave dedicated outlet problem

That was the first thing I check. Removed the outlet altogether and put the test meter directly to the exposed wires.

There is usually a junction box in the slide out where they join the romex and SJ cords together, like behind the fireplace or behind drawers. There is sometimes a junction box up in the underbelly of the coach also, Would have to loosen some of the coraplast underbelly to find it. Another RW owner had their wiring get caught up in the slide out ram mechanism. Grabbed or pinched the wires going in and out. Made for quite a mess. Good luck.

There is only a Hot and a Neutral. 120VAC is one leg. The 60V is probably just a phantom reading. In short, you have a bad connection, broken wire somewhere, probably on the neutral. You might try measuring the hot to the neutral on another outlet. If your not comfortable around electricity you may want to call an electrician on this one.
