    Maybe someone here knows. I am in this 2019 Cascadia. In the bunk I have three 12v outlets. One is up by the climate control and light switches. The other two are in front of the bunk. The two on the bunk, I had my koolatron "fridge" and a little 300w inverter plugged in. No issues until this morning. I get up, neither is working. I pulled the cover off the fuse panel and every fuse that it said 12v I pulled and checked. No burnt out ones. Lifted bunk and the rear of the sockets looks fine, no sign of melting and they weren't heated up. Did I pull every fuse, but the correct one? When it gets serviced, the techs at the shop could probably trace it to the source, but I have no idea when my work will get me through. I just usually wait until they call me, but I know it hasn't been quite three months since the last one.

    Maybe your battery voltage dropped too low and shut off power to the accessory outlets?

    I think you are right. I have a 2018 Cascadia. Those 12v outlets are shut down when the truck batteries get low. I have an APU. If I forget to arm the APU those 12v outlets get shut off. If I arm the APU those 12v outlets get shut off for a second and then the APU fires up and the outlets are live again.

    The 12v outlets near the dash don't shut down

    Mine doesn't have an APU. I usually idle it up and let it run at night while I sleep. I can check the voltage when I get back in it. Sitting in a shop getting trailer worked on. Never thought about the battery, since I only shut the truck off when I go home.

    I have a 1500w inverter installed but I only use it for microwave and tv. Eventually, I was going to get a little dorm fridge and ditch the koolatron. I just used the plugs for the little inverter and the koolatron. The main inverter is still working fine showing what the truck shows 14.2v pull
