Electrical outlet troubles

I have a 2015 Sierra 385FKBH. I lost power to all outlets except ones labeled gfci. The GFCI that has reset button is fine also. No breakers tripped and have power coming in as advertised. Besides outlets I lost power to living room ceiling fan at the same time. I shut the camper up after the weekend with everything working and came back next weekend and had these issues. Any ideas would be appreciated. Has anyone had luck finding electrical schematics online before, not having much luck myself.

Should be a reset button on gfci outlet that works . Push that , you'll hear it click and your in business.

The problem has to be in a junction box or loose wire somewhere. Having trouble locating junction boxes because underbelly is closed that is why I would like to get my eyes on a schematic. Breaker/fuse panel is fine as well as the converter.

You have 50 amp service, did you check that both hot legs are powered?

You may have 2 GFCI's . Check outside outlets or others near sink. Larger units usually have more than one. Is the ceiling Fan AC or 12V?

I will check closer when I get to the camper this weekend. The one outside and by the sink both have GFCI stickers on them but no buttons. These three outlets that are GFCI protected are the only ones I can use right now. They have power. I forgot to mention that the fidge outlet quit also but I ran an extension cord to outlet by the kitchen sink and fridge works fine on that outlet. Microwave also works. I am unsure of the ceiling fan until I get there, I don't have books here either. Thanks!

The GFCI outlets are wired such that one GFCI unit will protect several down the line and are controlled by the test / reset buttons on the master. The downstream outlets are protected by the one unit. Check the fridge outlet as some fridge outlets are GFCI masters.

Thank you for your help. I have checked the fridge one also. Unless I am missing one somewhere all GFCI outlets work. Fridge one is not identified as GFCI protected but I did check that. I think I need to get my hands on the wiring schematic.
