Not sure what you mean by nothing happened.
Did the outlet trip off when you hit the test button??
Did it reset OK when you hit the reset?
IF you meant the GF outlet is working then you'll
have to dig further.
I do not have your trailer so cannot give exact suggestions.
I'm sure your GF outlet is connected to other outlets in
your trailer. IF the GF outlet is working and no other
outlets are hot then it's time to start pulling out the
outlets to check the wiring on the backs.
Let's be sure we are on the same page first......
Are all the outlets in your trailer not working???
OR is the GF outlet working and all the others not working?
OR you have some (how many?) other outlets that are working and 4 that are not?
The pop your wife heard could have been a circuit breaker
or GF outlet tripping or it could have been a loose connection on the back of one of the outlets that arked
and burned the wire in two.
It might be time to start pulling out the outlets and checking for loose/burned wired on the backs.
You need a volt meter to check for voltage once
you've pulled one out.
Start at the GF outlet.
It should have voltage coming to it and voltage going
"down stream" to the next outlet in the string.
Be sure and shut off the breaker while your pulling the
outlet out of the wall. Once you've got it out you can
flip the breaker back on and check voltages.
If you don't know what the heck I'm talking about it's
time for a pro or a knowledgeable neighbor!
Be careful out there!!!
More people are electrocuted by home "low" voltage than
high voltage work!
