Washer/dryer gfi

In a 2008 MADP model 4529 does anyone know where the GFI outlet for the washer and dryer is located? There are 2 outlets behind the washer one for the dryer and one for the washer, they both don't have power to them. I've checked the circuit breakers and they are both on. The GFI in the bathroom is on, so I'm thinking that there is another GFI that tripped, but I don't know where it is. I've looked under the coach and didn't find anything.

Look under the upper cabinets around the sink. Not on the wall but installed on the under side of the bottom shelf of the upper cabinets.

UPDATE

Ok, found out it wasn't the GFI as I first thought, it may be worse. Even though I am plugged in to shore power, I'm not getting power in the coach. Everything is working if I'm on Generator. Not sure what to look at next . Could it be a fuse? Could it be something more? I'm open for any ideas before I take it to a dealer.

If you have 120 vac power in the coach on generator but nothing on shore power then you need to check the power at the pedestal. If power on both hot legs at the post then you need to check power at the transfer switch. Do you have an EMS that would be keeping power out of the coach because of a power problem?

Steve - you hit it...even though the circuit breaker on the post was on there was still no power to the plug. Called the guy out and he had to reset the breaker at a remote site. Now everything is back to normal.
Thanks to everyone, it's good to know that there are so many knowledgable folks out there willing to help.
