Default Power Outlets Not Working

I was on the second day of my trip andI blew both of the front power outlets in my truck. I pulled over to a rest stop and none of the fuses were blown unless there's another fuse box that the one in the manual. Anyone have this happen to them before? I have an appointment at the dealership in a week so I can get it checked then but if anyone has a simple solution so I don't have to waste an hour at the dealership please let me know.

What year is your truck and what motor? It sounds like you may have a problem with your IPM.

20071500. All 3 power outlets were working while I was on my trip until about the 1000 mile mark and 2 of them went within 10 minutes or so. I had thought it was a fuse but none of the fuses were bad when I checked at the next gas station.

They are all on different fuses fuse 1, 30 and 40 the tpim controls all 3 but they don't all share the same curcuit. The lighter and power outlet both share the same ground G203 check this. The way chrysler has been going with the quality control lately, I wouldn't be suprised if it was loose. hope this helps

Actually the fuses on a 2007 are a 1, 38 & 40. I looked in the manual and it only listed #1 so that's the one I checked. I finally out of desparation of not wanting to go to the dealer I checked the every other fuse in the fuse box and I found 38 and 40 were out. I replaced them and they worked like a dandy.
