Dead outlets

We recently had some work done on our Bounder motorhome and are now experiencing dead outlets. The only live outlet is beside the dining table. Outlet near the kitchen sink, bathroom sink and on both sides of the bed are dead. TVs work in bedroom and front of unit. No breakers have been thrown. Where do we look? We are on the road now.

Probably had a GFI trip. Each coach will be different, but check all of your GFI outlets and reset them.

Welcome to iRV2 .

You have to check for GFIC outlets that are tripped , each GFIC will have 5 or 6 outlets " daisy chained from it , GFIC tripps , 1/2 the outlets in the coach go dead.

EDIT: I see Carl , posted the same info while I was away typing.

Possibly a breaker on your inverter/converter. Those dead receptacles sound like some that would be inverter fed.

Mine ended up being a bad GFI. It took a while to track down because GFIs were wired weirdly. The gfi in the bedroom controlled outlets in the living room, even though there is a GFI outlet closer in the bathroom. Took me a day and a half to figure that one out.
