Electrical outlets not working

I took my Rockwood 2604 in to have a shower leak repaired, now, none of the electrical outlets are working. I checked all fuses are good, Is there a ground fault breaker else were?

Your electrical outlets are 120 volt AC and would be powered via a circuit breaker (CB) not fuses (at least would be first for me to learn otherwise). You must have a CB panel somewhere.

Did you check out your GFI's? Could have 2-4 of them depending on your particular trailer. Also, as suggested above, are any breakers "tripped"?

Check bathroom, near kitchen sink, and outside outlets for CGFI. FR uses one CGFI to protect several outlets.

Yep, had that happen on my 2104S. GF in the bathroom took every receptacle out.

None work on shore power? There are at least two ground faults, one in the kitchen and one in bathroom by the sink. Fuses have nothing to do with the 110 VAC. You need to reset the circuit breakers. Shut them all off then turn them all back on. Do them all in case they are not labeled properly. You will have a ground fault for each breaker marked GFI. There will be at least two, maybe three if you have one outside.

The reason I say to shut the breakers off then turn back on is sometimes a breaker trips but it doesn't look like it is tripped.

If you have no ac power check your power pole , or source.

If you have more than one GFI outlet in your camper and neither is working, it is more likely at the source. The very first thing I would be checking is the shore power to the camper. If it is plugged into a GFI circuit at the house/garage, that could be tripped. Check your source of power panel (main breaker panel at the house). I have seen tripped circuit breakers that are not showing red. Flip them off, then back on. Check your power cord. If using an extension cord, that may have pulled loose. Sometimes, it the most obvious things that can cause the grief.

As others have stated the outlets are daisy chained off one or two GFCI outlets.

However, can I ask if the microwave display is on? This gives a starting point as to where to start checking for power problems.
