No power just aft of the cab

My wife and I are on our maiden voyage for a short trip (2 nights) in our 2008 Lexington 255. (6000 miles). We are doing a shake down and I'm trying everything. I did it upon purchase and on an overnight in the back yard with the dogs. Everything seemed to work. Well tonight, the power for the front tv outlet and outlets on the bulkhead (front) facing the driver does not work. All the fuses in the electrical control box are good but the circuit breaker for rep/conv. (???) is tripped and won't reset. Not sure if related or not. Any help would be appreciated.

Look for a ground fault receptacle somewhere.
They typically daisy chain several outlets to one of these.
It is probably tripped. Look for a little reset button in the middle of
one of the outlets.

As far as the breaker for rep/conv. I don't know what that is but it can't be good
that it's tripped and won't reset.

6000 miles is a short trip?? Yikes!! What is a long trip??
Good luck!

No sorry, I only have 6000 miles on the rig. We put on 400 miles in a few days. It seems to be my outlets on the bed and cab and my converter as my batteries are not charging. The breaker stays tripped with no power. Thanks for the input.
