Lost power in half of my popup.

Hello 1st time poster. I have an older rockwood popup. All power was working last night when we went to bed but storms rolled through. Now today my inside lights work and 1 outlet inside works. 2 other inside outlets and my outside outlet are not working. Fuse looks ok and I've flipped the breaker multiple times and tried changing where the camper is plugged in. Any advice would be appreciated.

Do you have a GFCI that may have tripped?

I only have the 1 converter box with two breakers. I've flipped both breakers. Breaker one kills the other half of the camper breaker two doesn't bring any power back but it doesn't trip either.

Look for the GFCI outlet. The others are most likely tied to it. Usually near a sink or an outside outlet. Probably tripped due to water getting in it.

Don't have an outlet with that.

Do you mind telling us what it was?
Was it a GFCI?

Ditto.
it's always helpful for others, to post what the solution to the problem was.

Yup it was a GFCI outlet that I didn't know I had. It was located way under the table on the bench seat. I've never seen an outlet there. Thanks again for all the help.
