GFCI outlets in DRV Elite

Does anyone know why there are no GFCI outlets in DRV's?? I just realized we don't have this safety feature. Is is covered somewhere else in the RV?

I mis-spoke when I said 'them'--I have one for the entire 110 volt system and it is in the panel box.

Kind of odd--I was helping a friend with an electrical problem with his new Open Range fiver, and knew his problem was a tripped GFI. Then I thought about his being in the bath when I first answered you. When you said you still couldn't find it, I got to thinking and went to the trailer and lo--no GFI in the bath. I knew I had one, and if it wasn't where a lot of them were, then guessed the panel was where I had seen it. So your question helped me 're-find' mine.
Elites are sure nice units.

Besides the circuit breaker in the panel, I have one in the bathroom where the hair dryer is mounted. That is the only one on the unit.

Yeah, we love the Elite and fulltime in it now! Glad we could help each other, Joe. My unit is custom built and I didn't get the hair dryer, so apparently no GF for me in the bathroom! Guess they think you won't drop the non-built in!
