Electric gremlin

‘16 Bounder 35k, have an issue with slide electric receptacles not working, residential ref, outside TV, bedroom Tv, and under dash passenger side. Had mobile rV guy come out, replaced two breakers, one being the 50 amp dual, and original issue still present. Any and all suggestions appreciated! Air conditioners work, on board monitor shows both legs getting juice..

Typically this is a GFCI outlet being tripped. There is often a well camouflaged GFCI somewhere that has tripped and the other outlets are on the South side of that and stop working when the one GFCI trips.

Do you have an inverter in the rig ?

Everything you listed would run off one.

If the issue is a breaker they replaced the wrong one IMO.
I am not convinced it is a breaker but if it is I would check the 4th one down and labeled "Inverter/Chgr Out"
Then I would also check the 2nd from the bottom labeled "Inverter/Chg In". This feeds the subpanel and the inverter. Also check the neutrals and grounds for all the circuits to make sure the connections are tight. I found a number of screws, nuts, bolts, etc. work themselves loose over a couple years of driving. I now check all mine once a year.

My guess is the inverter as all the circuits you list are running through the inverter. There is a breaker on the inverter. Also, is there 12v power to the inverter? That is needed for the 120v power to pass through if I recall correctly.

Where on inverter would the breaker be?? I can’t seem to find anything other than reset button above the green light indicator. It is a magnum ms-2000.

The hide the breakes on the side. It may just be a push button breaker with a 20 or 30 stamped on the end.

Did this fix the issue?
Is the issue still present on a 30 A connection?

No, problem escalated. After talking to Magnum techs and walking me through several scenarios, changing out a Bussman fuse-throwing a fault of ac overload...seems something inside the inverter has shorted out. Think I am going to be in the market for a new one...but with the supply chain the way it is.....who knows when??????? And we live in it full time, so right now we limping along with extension cords to what "circuit" the inverter services.....

Well, after trying everything "in my tool box", I finally broke down and got a knowledgeable tech who knows inverters. It has been taken out and will be 'rebuilt', seems the converter part's mother board is fried. He has me hooked up with AC and with my battery charger hooked up to battery bank we have DC as well. Hope to be back to normal next Friday.....
