Light switch stopped and so has 120volt outlets ??

So I had to replace part of my floor this year in my Flagstaff. (long story). I was running a circular saw off the outside 120 volt outlet when it suddenly stopped working....I just used an extension cord off the house to finish the job.

I figured it was just the gfci plug that tripped so I pressed the reset button on both the bathroom and the dinette outlet thinking one was wired to the outside one and nothing...........then........I noticed the interior light switch that controls the light over my dinette no longer works as well as my 120 volt outlet near the dinette.

Checked all the breakers. they are good? Wtf?

Figured I blew something but what ???? any ideas? please help me!!

thanks

Any "chance" you may have cut a power line under the floor when you did run your circular saw repairing your floor? Hope not!

AFTER you check for a cut wire under the floor (remember the wires are not secured and could have pulled apart after the cut and be laying on top of the underbelly covering):

The exterior outlet is fed off the same power as the kitchen in my camper.
Check the GFCI (you did); the in-camper breakers (you did but check again); the house breaker powering where the camper was plugged in; reset any power monitor (surge protector).

Good luck.

Thanks . All solid points and am willing to bet I did split a wire running down underneath. I will check for this tomorrow AM and report back.
