I would be very careful taking any suggestions from the person who told you this as it it wrong. GFI's and EMS units sometimes don't play well together when connecting RV's to garage outlets

I had same problem but gfci wouldn't reset after it tripped while DW was trying to use a blow dryer. 2 downstream outlets would'nt work. Turned out to be a bad gfci outlet. Replaced and all worked well after that. There was an outlet in the cargo bay that was hard to find that wasn't working and one one the island.

Is there a way to check the GFI outlets besides the reset button?

This may be an old thread, but the info. found here was very helpful to this newby! I check GFCIs in my house but hadn't thought of it for our trailer. Problem solved!
