Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

In order to get help you'll need to tell us what RV you have. Then maybe someone with that same year model can help you. Enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome and glad to meet you!

How did you test for power?

Obvious stuff first: Is the breaker tripped?

If breaker is not tripped, is there power at the breaker terminal screw?

If there is power at the terminal screw, and no power at the vanity gfci, and there is nothing in between on that circuit, you have a bad wire or bad connections.

Or GFCI is bad..I.e.: not resting

True, but I meant at the screw terminal on the gfci, not in the slot. I should have specified.

You said no power to GFCI.. Question, How are you determining that.

Option 1; GFCI will not reset, Light or other device plugged into it will not work

Option 2: Removed GFCI From wall and used a meter or other test device (Test lamp) on wires connected to it on the SOURCE side.

If option 2: Then the breaker, the wire connecting them and #1 on the suspect list THE SCREWS inside the power distribution panel are all suspect. Check for power on the breaker screw. and with the RV not connected to 120 volts tighten all screws inside that box.. No matter what color the wire.

If option 2; Start by disconnecting the wires on the LOAD side of the GFCI outlet.. Now if it works check the patio outlet as suspect #1, it often gets waterlogged and that will cause a GFCI to trip.. Instantly, and you won't be able to reset it as it will trip instantlly when you do.

If that's not it you are in for some work tracing wires

OH, and unplug everything plugged into a GFCI protected outlet, even if it's in the kitchen or somewhere else.
