100% chance that there is.

Check storage bays, etc. Just keep looking everywhere. They will put them in the most unusual places where you least expect it.

Remember that many things are daisy chained together.

A call to the dealer or Mfr might save some time.

Mine has two interior GFCI circuits, one main GFCI is by the kitchen sink for that area and the other is in the hallway area for the bath, etc.

Electrical problem

There was only one in my 08 35E Bounder. Have you checked the circuit breaker panel for that breaker ?
I agree with the above , call FW 800-322-8216. They'll be able to assist.

Many motor homes do have two and the name of the game back at the factory is "How Well can we hide it"

That said: make sure the GFCI did in fact reset.

OTEHR suspects

on the back of the GFCI there are usually at least 4 wires, Two marked LINE and two LOAD.. it's possible the LOAD side has come apart (is no longer connected to the romex) since wire nuts are not the best way to secure wires,, and Crimp connectors no better.

Same can be said of the connections at each outlet, they use Punch Down connectors,, In my book the worst choice.

GFI for Kitchen

I recently had the same problem. kitchen GFI would not reset. I checked the A/C breaker panel (in bedroom in my case). All breakers were okay. Turns out there is a A/C breaker for the Microwave in the battery box. Once I found it, reset breaker - problem solved. I have no idea why it is not in the A/C breaker box.

If you have 50 amp service in the motorhome you should have two GFCI's.
