fireplace doesn't work

I just purchased a 2005 forest river salemn (SMT381FLFB). I can't get the fireplace to work. I checked the outlet and get no voltage. I then plugged the fireplace into a different outlet and it worked. All other outlets in the trailer work. Is this outlet connected to a switch somewhere?

Have you checked you breakers in the electrical panel? It may be tripped and just needs to be reset.

My camper (Flagstaff 8526) has a switch next to the floor by the door that switches from (Fireplace - OFF - Microwave) so that I can't exceed 30 amps.
