Dead 110 outlets

I have a 2002 Sierra T21 that is having electric issues. Replaced 15 Amp breaker and 2 plugs with no change. I have not located a GFCI OR GFI in the trailer. Could it be an inverter fuse ?
Would like to find wiring diagram but as Forest River
Keeps no records I am guessing.
I have searched forum for answers and not really find finding what I need.

50a or 30a service?

You have got to start with basics.
Have you checked the supply voltage at the power source where plugged in with a meter?
Are you using an adapter?
Have you checked the voltage at the power distribution box with a meter?
Have you checked all the outgoing feed voltages at each breaker?

I'd guess that the bathroom outlet is a GFCI. Either that or the Kitchen. I cannot imagine there not being a GFCI somewhere.

All three of the TT's that I have owned have had a GFCI in the bathroom. I also helped a couple out at a campground with electrical problems. I showed them the GFCI in their bathroom and everything came back on line.

In my experience, when all 120v outlets are dead and other AC items work (like Microwave) the GCFI that protects ALL of them is tripped.

Most common location is in the bathroom.

Keep looking, there is one somewhere.

When you find it, make sure to push the reset button firmly. Some I've found are hard to reset with my large fingers so I use the eraser end of a pencil.

If no GFCI in bathroom or kitchen area, check an outside outlet. I have not seen an RV in a long time without at least one GFCI.

And that GFCI will feed (and protect) other outlets further down the line on the same electrical run. So if the GFCI is out or tripped, you will not have power at any outlet after the GFCI.

Still looking and like we all think bathroom or kitchen .
It is not ! So in looking for the GFCI A THOUGHT I replaced the propane/electric water heater with a 6 gal propane only now Iím thinking about looking at that since itís water it could be GFCI. Right?
Anyone ever see one there?
As I said before an owners manual or wiring diagram
Would be nice. If I ever find one Iíll post it with a link o the pdf to download so others can see it.

My rig does not have GFCI outlets only GFCI breakers. Also your inverter will have a reset button usually hidden.

We had an RV once where the only gfci was the receptacle on the outside under the awning. All the rest of the receptacles were daisy chained to that one.

I also remember that the gfci in one RV was the one for the fridge.

As houstonstoker suggested, have you checked your breakers for a GFCI breaker?

In fact, have you checked all your breakers? It's not always easy to see when one trips. Turn them off, then back on.

In my old Rockwood mine was located in the outlet in the storage locker, it could be anywhere, but you do have one, never seen a unit without one.
