Gfi.. problems

Hey guys.. I'm camping this weekend. 2014.. a122s.. only second time out. This morning I made the mistake of having the tv on, a ceramic heater, coffee maker and an electric griddle.. ya I know, stupid. Anyway.. gfi tripped. I unplugged and tried to reset gfi. Button will not reset. I know it was resetting last night.. because I reset it once.

Any ideas? I can run an extension cord from the camp site power box for tv, etc.. tonight. But I would like to get my electric outlets back.

Did the breaker trip at the service pole?

Also check the converter for tripped breakers

Sounds more like a tripped breaker. All those things running sounds like an overload for sure. This happens and people assume the GFCI is at fault and start pushing buttons there. If you push the test button it will trip the GFCI but it won't reset until power is restored.

I checked the breakers at the pole, first thing. The rest of the camper has power. Micro wave clock is on, etc. Where is the breaker on the converter?
