GFI receptacle reset mystery

For reference, I have a 2019 Tiffin Pheaton IH. All the receptacle's on the passenger side rear slide have no power, also basement receptacle's do not either. I have looked everywhere, none have a reset button. No fuses or breakers are blown or tripped that I can find. I did find one with a reset on the bottom of the front slide, that did not solve the problem. We were sitting outside with a fan running when we lost power. Any ideas?
Thanks

Did you actually cycle the breakers? Some donít look tripped, and donít have trip indicators, when they actually are tripped.

Was that ALL power, including your air conditioners, or just the power to the curb side slide?


Were you hooked up to shore power or using generator? Have you tried using the 'other' source? If you were on shore power are you certain you had both incoming lines (both hot legs)?

Find the inverter/charger and check the breakers on it.
Probably out in a compartment.

Thanks for the thoughts (all good ones by the way). Sorry I didn't ask my question correctly, I was really looking for a reset button on a GFI receptacle that controlled the GFI plugs on the rear passenger side of my MH. After much frustration, I finally found it, in the back closet on the drivers side, on a vertical surface hidden by clothes. Why did it take me so long, such a logical place for it! (FYI the the one for the Kitchen GFI plugs, which is on the drivers side, is on the UNDERSIDE of the front passenger slide out!! Go figure!!

In order to protect all the other outlets on the circuit, the GFCI module has to be on the physically first outlet on the wire, i.e. the one closest to the breaker. And the wiring is laid out to be the easiest and cheapest for the factory, not for your convenience!
