gfi not resetting

I have just hauled my Blue Ridge to Florida after owning for 5 yrs and being stationary. On arrival I have 2 gfi's that will not reset and I have no power to 6 outlets. Any ideas out there. I do have power to one gfi and have power to my entertainment and outlet near stove all on same slideout

If you have power to the gfci and it will not reset it is bad and has to be replaced. If they do not have power to them most if not all will not reset.

I had the exact same issue and they replaced the bathroom GFI control outlet. Still NG. Turns out, one of the ground wires came loose. Once they found the bad wire, everything OK. You will need a power checker to plug in and check for ground - not just power.

Check to see if you have a breaker that has tripped. As Toddupton stated, they generally will not reset if they have no power.
Travel safe

Thanks Everyone for your help. I hauled yesterday another 4 hrs and when we set up we had all our power back. Must be a loose ground somewhere.Can't tell now that everything is working.Will be moving again in a month so see if it rears its head again so I can check for bad ground wire.
