335 GFCI location(s)

We have been enjoying our first experience as snow birds. However, on Saturday the two outlets in the kitchen died. Since these are labeled as controlled by a GFCI circuit I wasn't surprised they were both out. The only reset I am aware of on our unit is in the head. I have reset it multiple times to test and we still have no power in the kitchen. There is also an outlet in the second storage bay that is dead.

I've checked the circuit breakers, none were tripped. Have reset all of them anyway.

My question is:
Is there a second GCFI outlet somewhere I am missing?

Does the one in the head work ok? If not you may have acquired a poor power pole. Has happened to me twice in the last three years. Also, the GFCIs have been known to go bad. On our rig there is only one "master" GFCI and it is located in the bath area.

Often the first Daisy chain connection leaving the GFIC outlet (in the head) is a bad connection. It can also be a bum connection with the neutral wire, usually in a wire nut. Remove the outlet and check with a multimeter.

Normally you'll have two gfci's
One in the bathroom and one in or near the kitchen sink.
Those with an outside kitchen have one there as well.

Look under the overhead cabinets.

I think in our 350 there is a gfci in the basement with the tv cable connection. I would try there.
