need help - where is gfci reset?

2015 cardinal model 3825 - somehow this morning it looks like we tripped a gfci circuit protector. we have three outlets in the kitchen that all have a little sticker on them that say 'gfci protected outlet'. they are normal outlets with this sticker on them. they do not have the gfci test or reset buttons on them. this implies to me that there is another device somewhere that has tripped knocking out power to these outlets. i have gone to the 110 volt distribution panel and checked and reset the circuit breakers. there has to be a gfci device between the circuit breaker and the gfci protected outlets. does anybody have any idea where it might be hiding? I have looked under the sink and in all the places that are obvious to me. can't find it. since it should have a reset button on it, it should be accessible. any ideas are appreciated.

Gfci's can be located anywhere in the RV. I've seen them outside, inside near the kitchen, in the bathroom and even in the bedroom. Just look at every receptacle in and out of the unit.

Mine is 12" left of my bathroom sink and only a few inches off the counter - the perfect place for water to splash on it which SHOULD trip it every time. We have to be careful.

found it! thanks. the receptacle in the bathroom has the test and reset buttons. turns out this receptacle also controls the three in the kitchen that went out. thanks for all the replies. and as somebody said, I am learning that stuff can be located anywhere. I still have other things to track down. again thanks

Wait until you try to locate the crank handle that operates the slide out when it is inoperative.

Better know how to operate the slide now, when you have time not when an inopportune moment strikes. Mine doesn't have a crank...that would be too easy
