Where is the circuit breaker in my 2007 Rockwood Roo 232?

We are getting ready for our first trip out in our NTU 2007 Rockwood Roo 232. It is plugged into house power. The lights and radio/CD player have worked fine. I plugged a fan into an outlet for the first time today. NONE of the plugs have power. I have already attempted to reset the single GFCI plug. Still no joy. I'm thinking I have tripped a circuit or blown a fuse, but don't know where the panel is located. Can anyone help me out? I looked through this thread but wasn't able to find this. Thank you for any help you may offer.

I looked at a video of a 2005 Roo 232 and it had the power panel under the oven, between the fridge and the sink. It's a brown panel.

All your 120V AC outlets will be on breakers, not fuses.

Thanks so much itat. My panel is under the fridge. I had opened it and attempted to reset the breakers I found there with no luck. I was hoping it was just for the fridge and I was missing something. It never occurred to me to test the plugs since the lights are working ok. I'll need to keep troubleshooting. Appreciate the help.

This has been resolved. When DH arrived home, I explained the issue. He told me that he had unplugged the house end of the connection late last night so he could charge the weed whacker. As I am not tall enough to see the plug up on the shelf, it didn't occur to me to look at it. Do I fell dumb? Yes, but not as dumb as I felt when I couldn't get the plugs to work. Thank you so very much for helping me out itat.

Ford Idaho, it's funny you should say that. When my husband told me about unplugging the rig and then remembered that I am too short to see it, we both quoted the same line.

KateE: Welcome to the wonderful world of trailer power. The lights are 12VDC and work off the battery when the trailer is "unplugged." When the trailer plugged in, the 12VDC is provided by a converter (usually located near that breaker panel) that changes 110VAC to 12VDC to charge the battery and run whatever needs 12VDC. Here (to improve your "professional aloofness") is what typically uses 12VDC:

1. Lights
2. Carbon monoxide detector
3. Fridge electronics (power for cooling is either gas or 110VAC)
4. Hot Water Heater electronics (power for heating is either gas or 110VAC, or both)
5. Radio/stereo
6. Fans in the roof vents, if you have fans in the roof vents
7. Water pump
8. Water tank level indicators
9. Slides if you have them
10. Range hood fan if you have one
11. Power awning if you have one
12. Furnace electronics and blower (heat provided by gas)

This list got longer than I was expecting!! If I missed something, someone else will chime in.
