Maineiac, we were in our RV this past weekend. I went into the storage belly and pulled out the receptable. I put a flashlight in the outlet hole and peered over at the wiring into and out of the outside outlet. The backside of the outside outlet had a line running from it to the storage compartment outlet. I'm guessing this same line is disconnected on your RV.
As for the kitchen outlets, I saw that the panels between the underbelly storage and compartment with the plumbing and wiring, are easily removed by removing the fasteners. I was tied up this past weekend, although I plan on removing a panel to access the electrical wiring and finding the source of the problem. I have non-contact circuit tracer that will make short work of finding hot wires and dead wires.
Hope this helps.

Did you speak with the FR production manager?

you are right - the line from the outside outlet to the storage compartment outlet was disconnected and just laying loose in that space under the stairs. I re-connected it and now that outlet is fine.

in the kitchen the 3 are still dead. the one on the end of the counter and on left side of the wall under the cabinets have just a single line in. the one on the right side of the cabinet wall has a line in and 2 lines out (I'm assuming to feed the other 2 dead outlets)

so now my question is where does the line that feeds the outlet on the right side of the cabinet wall come from? if we can trace that back we might be able to find where it is disconnected

I have the same model 2016 REBH and have 2 questions.

Did either of you guys fix the kitchen receptacles?

Is your inverter mounted under the stairs?

I looks in the and some a bunch of wires and investor under the floor through the air vent. Seems like they could have made use of the empty space by putting a door to the outside and make a cargo area that holds the inventor.

Maineiac and Static: well its the end of summer and we did a lot of camping in our 371 REBH. Funny thing, we found the dead receptacles didn't really matter to us because we generally have dished and other items on the counters, not things requiring power to 120V. Anyhow, I trust you two had a great summer in your RVs as well.
I'm about to winterize my RV and thought, maybe I should quit stalling on the outlet problem and find the issue once and for all. With that said, by chance did either of you trace down the wiring inside the belly? I don't mind removing a few fasteners and crawling around. A road map from someone else's experience would come in handy too. If you have anything to share, please do. If not, I'll let you know what I come across in the quest to reconnect the power to the kitchen outlets.
Static: I haven't looked for the inverter. If I find it, I'll let you know.
By the way, any recommendations on a cover for the 371 REBH? I think the length of our RV is 41' 6". Not a lot of options I'm finding for that length.

I spent about 90 days straight in mine no major problems. My invertor is under the stairs I can see it looking through the vents. Just laying there and wires laying everywhere
