2 interior outlets with no power??

'08 Phaeton 36QSH, recently new to us.

Both outlets in driver side forward slide have no power. the one below dining table is labelled GFCI protected, the outlet behind the couch is not.

Owner's Manual says: "Electrical receptacles in the slide out are wired through the kitchen GFCI. Exterior receptacles are wired through the bathroom GFCI".

Unfortunately, I find no "resetable" GFCI outlet in kitchen OR bathroom. There IS one in the cabinet below the TV and another beside the sink in the bedroom. I have tested and reset both, and that did not bring power to the 2 powerless outlets.

Also, on the 120V breaker panel, I find 2 breakers labelled "#1 GFCI outlets" and "#2 GFCI outlets". Both breakers have been cycled off and on several times, to no avail.

Any ideas how I get power restored to the 2 outlets in question? (I say restore - assuming they had power at one point.)

Thanks, B

Check for GFCIs in the basement area and the wet bay. Those are two more common places as well as underneath the edge of the bathroom counter top. Another thing to check is clear looking Molex connectors are used to connect 120v outlets in slides to main junction points in the bays. It's not uncommon for one of those connectors to either deteriorate or come unplugged. The connectors will look similar to below.
