2015 Grey Wolf 26RL breaker box issues

Dear Forest River community, please help! I am the brand new owner of a 2015 Grey Wolf 26RL travel trailer. I have the trailer parked at this time. My issue is with the breaker box. To keep the inside warm while parked I plugged in and ran a heater (HeatSurge) inside the trailer. It has been getting extremely cold here, so I hooked up another heater (HeatSurge) inside the trailer. My mistake! I believe both heaters overloaded the circuit and blew the breaker. Now the outlets will not function. Also, I cannot get the breaker switches for REFER and CONVERTER to stay switched in the ON position. I checked the fuses and they all look good. Any advice/info would help! Thank you! Click image for larger version

I would post your problem in the electrical posting: Electrical, Charging Systems & Solar - Forest River Forums
Do you have a multimeter, it sounds like you have a short and you should start looking at the outlets the heaters were plugged into. Could the heaters have been plugged into a GFI circuit that needs to be reset and/or went bad.
I do find it weird that 2 outlets on 2 separate circuits would have issues at the same time. Could you have had some kind of electrical surge from outside, do you have an EMS system to protect you from shore power issues.
Sorry more questions than answers, I would start at wall outlets looking for a short
Good luck

What was the solution? Was it to reset both tripped breakers by pushing handle to the left and then to the right?

I mysteriously lost power to my outside kitchen frig. & plugs, 2 bunk-room outlets, bathroom outlet, and the outside outlet for TV, etc. Traced it down to find power was run "piggyback" from the circuit breaker starting at the GF outlet in bathroom. I had to push with a screwdriver blade to get the reset button to work. All is fine now.
