Electrical problems

Microwave stopped working last night. Fuses and breaker are okay. Any suggestions?
Also, kitchen side of RV lost electricity to elec. plug. Again, fuses and breakers are fine.

Check your gfci and see if it's tripped. You usually have them near sinks in the kitchen and bathrooms. If the master gfci outlet trips, then all the other outlets wired to it in succession will not function. These gfci outlets are also famous for wires coming loose in them, and just being faulty too.

Check GFI. Note that FR uses one GFI to protect itself and several down stream outlets so GFI may not be located in same area as non working appliance

After you check the gfci suggested above and still not solved we will need some information to be able to help you:

Are you boondocking and running a generator?
Are you plugged into shore power?
Are you running these things from an inverter?
Do you have 30 amp service or 50 amp service?
