Help...power to plugs lost

Wife was using the hair dryer along with an electric heater and we suddenly lost all power through the inside plugs. I reset the two 50 amp breakers in the MH as well as the 50 amp breaker outside at the pedestal. Checked the main breaker on the building electrical panel where we are staying. All good. Also checked the built in Surge Protection system and the GFI outlet (only one on this coach). Could it be the GFI gone bad?

Anybody with any ideas?

Not all the outlets would be daisy chained through a single GFI outlet.
Is your couch equipped with a whole house inverter?
Checked breakers on any inverter, that your coach is equipped with?

We have an Invertrex whole house inverter. I checked the inside breaker for that as well and it was not tripped. In our coach manual it states that there is only one GFI which happens to be in the bedroom below the house breakers. Interestingly enough the microwave is working and it is, of course, plugged in.

Try resetting the Gfic a few times.

Go to your battery bay and open up the cover above the batteries. There you will find the inverter and most likely one of the two 15 amp breakers is tripped

Thank you, thank you, thank you! One of those switches was tripped. They certainly don't make it easy to get to...which can be good but not if you have to get at it. Anyway, I sincerely appreciate the help!!

Had something similar happen to us last month. The inverter released its magic smoke. It was rebuilt for about $150 and now AC works as it should. In my coach the breaker box for both the Inverter and Shore power AC are next to eachother in a cabinet I think that I will had a duplex outlet in that cabinet from the shore power panel so that if the inverter ever fails again I can supply AC to vital components (like the frig!).

Why not just jump the inverter 120 vac input to the inverter 120 vac output? That would bypass the inverter so that it could be removed for repair.
