Outlet problems

I have a 2002 Forest River 23' Salem trailer. 4 of my indoor outlets and the outdoor outlet tend to only work part time. I can plug into then in the morning and they are fine. By 11:30 a.m., they all quit working. That leaves me with 2 working indoor outlets. I have checked fuses, breakers, and everything else I know. Any thoughts?

They are probably all on the same GFCI, and it's probably either defective or has a loose connection on it.

It sounds like the outlets work sometimes, and other times they don't. Is that correct? They start working again without any intervention?

My first thought was the GFI as well, but I have never heard of a GFI tripping then resetting itself. I do agree the GFI must be checked, but it could also be a loose wire which feeds those outlets, and is much more serious. A loose wire can arc and start a fire.
