I'd look for tripped breakers first, then reset GFI plugs. If they trip again, I'd take a NEW trailer to the point of purchase and have warranty work performed. I would try myself on a used trailer as they are like home circuits and simply unplugging the trailer de energizes them to safely work on them.

How is the house battery? Usually mounted on the trailer tongue or front compartment. Check for good clean connections and if dead, disconnect and charge fully with a charger for deepcycle batteries.
