Outlet trip circuit - can't find fuse or breaker

Tripped the outlet on near the passenger's footwell right side wall and upper outlets that works tv and sattelite. Checked fuses and house breakers in rear bedroom and all are fine. Any ideas? Is there a GFI circuit that is connected to this that needs to be reset or a fuse in another location. Everything works but these three outlets (2 in the upper cabinet that the tv and sattelite are plugged into and the one on the floor near the passenger's footwell). None of these are GFI outlets. Your help appreciated before I call a mobile electrician. Thanks in advance.

Check the GFI's in bathroom and kitchen and reseet all the breakers in the circuit breaker box. They may be tripped and not show it. Also reset the invertor if the circuit is powered by it. There should not be any fuses involved

Is there a second circuit breaker panel other than the one in the master bedroom? Checkede all the breakers and reset them. Still no power in the front 3 outlets. I was plugging in an electric heater nearby the floor outlet and it tripped something. Thought I heard it 'click' nearby, but can't seem to find a place to reset the outlets. None of them or GFI outlets and reset both the bath and kitchen GFI's, still now power. Puzzled still. Thanks for the suggestions

Do you have an Inverter? If so, the breaker on the Inverter is probably tripped. That was my problem when the same thing happened to me. The "breaker" on mine is a little white round "button".

Sorry viewers, I guess I didn't check it well enough after all that switching. It's back on again! Thanks for your quick response and help. Love this forum.

Gary, on my set-up, the overhead & footwell electricial plugs run thru a xantex inverter 1200 plus- 1000 watt in the battery bay. If you have to many accessories hooked up & turned on at same time you will kick the inverter breaker everytime as it only handles so many watts.

Yes, when I went out to check it, the 7amp fuse had popped. I reset it and I guess that was the issue. Thanks for your input and help. Love my mountain aire.
