Electrical problem

Redwood 2013 36RL
While watching TV I lost power to my entertainment center. The circuit also includes the refrigerator (now running on propane) and the outlet on the wall beside the fridge.
Fireplace, microwave, and all 12v lights still work.
All breakers are set

Any suggestions??

Are all non working items on the same breaker? If so, might be a bad breaker or a loose connection in the line.

Popped a GFI? Don't have any idea where it would be, but the symptoms are there...

Check for GFI in that circuit. A lot of times it's in the bathroom.

If all of the failed outlets are in a slide out, then you should check the wiring harness and connections either side of the harness. Moisture buildup at the connections can sometimes cause a leakage path that then trips the GFI. A single GFI can control many outlets in an RV. But having said all of that, in my experience, the refer. is normally on a dedicated outlet and should not loose power along with other outlets. Any additional facts that you uncover could be really helpful.

X3 on the GFI. Usually in the bathroom or kitchen outlet.

I've tried all things mentioned. Problem is probably in a junction box where wires come into the slide.

A number of owners find water in the junction box under the Rv that trips the gfi. But again the refer should be on a separate circuit, check the labels on the breaker panel. If it is separate, then you have loose or corroded connections
