2005 Thor Citation electrical issue

I'm hoping to help my uncle with an electrical issue. He has a 29' 2005 Citation with an electrical short somewhere. It's blown out a number of outlets in the trailer and never tripped the breaker. He's checked for continuity in all of the outlets that are not working and they've all come back good. I'm thinking that something shorted before the breaker panel but we have no idea where to look. Does anyone have a resource for a wiring schematic for this trailer?

Have you located a GFCI outlet ?

The first one in the series controls the rest, down the line.

The trailer must be plugged in, to reset the GFCI.

From the GFCI outlet is a pair of wires that feed a few other outlets. Mostly near water sources.

Have him pull the GFCI out and check the " LOAD " side of the outlet.

You are discribing an open circuit. Open connection.
A short trips breakers or shoots sparks and gets hot.

I am not sure what you are saying here.
I assume the TT is plugged into shore power.
I also assume you have battery power and are not having trouble with 12 volt devices.
Does anything work? Air Conditioner, Microwave, Elec water heater ,,,
Do some outlets still work?
How did you continuity check outlets?
