110V system partially dead

Its full day #1of a 14 day trip with the wife and kids....My wife was using a hairdryer in the bedroom of our 2011 390BH Berkshire, and the circuit went dead, i was showering so i heard only her complaint.
The tv, bunk, and bed area outlets all went dead. None of these effected circuits wear a "part of a gfci circuit" sticker on them. All of the other outlets, except the microwave and washer (also unaffected) have gfci stickers on them and they all work.
I reset both the bath and kitchen gfi outlets first anyhow, then went to looking at the ac breakers. Nothing was tripped, so panel cover off and multimeter out....all of the circuits were properly passing full voltage through the breaker.

Ive looked at the manual and I've covered the locations noted there, So does anyone know of a third gfci outlet location? Or a second AC breaker panel, or trick etc to try and restore power to the back half of my coach?

Look outside.

You may have an outside outlet, and you may also have one in the frig compartment.

On your GFCIs, press the TEST button, then reset it.

You might want to remove the outlet and see if the wires are loose on the outlet.

Check your AC breakers again in panel....a trip breaker might not look tripped and needs to be reset: usually to the right then closed to the left.....

All good advise. I tried the breakers, reset all of them yesterday. I have not removed the outlet yet though, worth a look but i doubt thats the issue because outlets on both sides of it are dead also.

Keep it coming please!

You will prolly be disappointed when you pull the outlet. It most likely will have push in wire connectors. I think you need a tool to re-crimp the outlet if salvageable. I was going to replace an outlet with a usb charging outlet. I found no box and wires crimped in. Had to regroup and get a remodelers box to fix. I hope you find/fix easily.

My hair dryer has GFI built into the plug. Just a thought. Have power at the outlet? Buy a cheap 3 light plug in tester and keep in TT. Some even have a GFI tester built in.
