I would test all outlets with voltmeter, tracing back to fuse panel. Could be defective GFCI or bad wire somewhere. I had similar issue due to defective GFI in bathroom.

Many GFI outlets will not reset if they do not have power to them. You can pull the outlet out of its box and check for 120 volts feeding it. If you do have that voltage there, probably a bad GFI.

If you discover any outlets using push-in connections, I recommend you re-wire them to the screw terminals on the side of the outlet. The push-in connections do not like the constant vibration that RVs provide.

Had the same thing happen to us!
Found out that a wire had come loose off a receptacle.
Everything "downstream" of the working receptacle wouldn't work.
You'll need to check each outlet to see if that's what the issue is.
Doesn't take to much skill and no need to be afraid of getting a shock as long as you remember to unplug from shore power!
Good Luck!
Let us know what you find please.

We had this happen in our 2011 springdale. Most likely a wire off on one of the outlets as they are ran downstream. If you have a multi meter you can figure it out fairly quickly. I had this happen to two separate receptacles in the same circuit a week apart. 10 minute fix.

One thing you should know about TT, they are wired just like mobile homes. The power can be wired from one GFI/Outlet to the next, so if one link fails, the whole leg from that point on dies also !

Good Luck !

There may be a 2nd GFI somewhere (outside), you may find it's the culprit!
