One side outlets don't work

I have a 2001 National tradewinds coach. This morning the right side outlets have no power. I have checked all of the GFI outlets. (3) One didn't
trip so I checked both side of the outlet to see if the GFI was the problem. No juice to it. I checked all of the fuses I can, and none have been blown. I don't know how to check the enclosed fuses in the fuse box. I have checked the master breaker located in the battery compartment..and all is well.
I have checked the breaker box and none have been tripped.

Can anyone suggest where/what I should check next?

Often a breaker can look O.K. when it is actually tripped. Turn off each CB and then turn back on. You say you tested one of the GFI outlets and found no juice. Did you just test with a probe in the outlet or pull the outlet out of the box and test at wire/post connection? A bad GFI might be the problem.

With RV unplugged from shore power, you should remove the cover of the main CB panel and check that all wires are tight to their connection. It is not uncommon for vibration to loosen connections. If it is a 50 amp service, you need to check for loose wires in the transfer switch also if you don't find a loose wire in the CB panel. If it is 30 amp, you'd get no power if wire was loose in the transfer switch.

Go to your inverter and check the 2 breakers on the inverter.

Did you check the GFI in the plug behind the fold down counter at the edge of the sink?
