A/C Outlets in Dinette Slide Quit Working

Hello guys.
2014 Berk 390RB, with Residential Fridge

At a campsite and noticed my Fridge was not working a little while ago.
It was working earlier today and yesterday.

Here is what I have checked/done so far:
No A/C power to outlet behind fridge.
Reset A/C breakers,
Tried on inverter,
Hooked up to 30 amp with adapter,
Reset GFI in back bath (only one I could find).
Tested other outlets with meter and all others outlets seem OK.
Ran extension cord to outlet right behind drivers seat to get the fridge back on temporarily

Seems it is only affecting the 2 outlets in the dinette slide.
One outlet behind fridge and one outlet under dinette.


Has anyone ran into this issue already that can point me in the right direction from here?

Thanks, Dan

EDIT: While travelling yesterday, we did smell something that we could not identify which may or may not be related. Was kind of a burning smell, kind of like a fan belt but not really. And was just faint. We had stopped to check it out, but could never identify anything.

something to check

Have you checked the wire on the bus bar inside the breaker box? We had some come lose and melted the box, almost a fire. To check disconnect from shore power, there are two screws that hold the breaker frame in place and you will see two bus bars below the breakers. Check wires for discolor and that they are secure.

I would look for another GFI outlet. Should be one in the kitchen area on the corner of the counter next to the fridge.

no3putt, thanks. I'll get into there in a while when I can get an opportunity to get the others off the TV and Air Conditioner

tmmar, thanks but I think my RB is quite different layout than your BH.
The kitchen counters are on the other side of the coach and all work fine.

no3putt, got into the breaker box.
Found one wire loose that was not on the fridge circuit.
No burnt or discolored wires

Maybe I should check for power at the bus bar while I have it open?
I'd have to plug it back to in to the pedestal for that though.

We have two GFI outlets. One in bath, one in kitchen area.

I'm afraid not.
I'm out of ideas.

I would also think it's a GFI. Might be outside and not close to the outlet. There are a couple in the back compartments that could be the issue. If all the beakers are on its a plug issue our a GFI as far as I can guess.
