rear 110 outlets are dead

My wife was using the sweeper today and the outlet went dead by the rear closet. At the same time the outlet at the left side of bedroom and near the dining table quit. All should be on the same circuit breaker which checks good and has voltage. These are not GFCI outlets. Is there another spot to check for a reset? Everything at the power board checks fine. This is a 2003 Windsong 326. Any help here is greatly appreciated.

Check all the GFI plugs because two GFI plugs all the outlets. Or if you have a 50 amp service check the pedestal for a tripped breaker.

Pedestal ?

I've checked all the breakers at the electrics console in the rear bedroom. Not sure what you mean by pedestal.

Pedestal means the place where you plug in your shore line. 50 amp service is actually two 110 volt lines through a dual breaker where you plug in. There is also a master breaker on each phase in the RV park that could be tripped. Ask neighbors if they also have lost some power. Besides a popped GFI, individual outlets may have the input on one set of screws and then pass to the next from the other two screws. I have had a loose connection half way from source to end of the chain. The outlet at that point worked but nothing further on.

I covered troubleshooting your issue in the link I posted.
My post (numbered 5) in that thread has the troubleshooting procedure.

Most Rv's use one or two GFIs to protect many outlets. If one tripped, it will take out all the outlets that are fed by it. Check bathroom, Sink area, outside. Odds are one of the GFIs is tripped.

Just an update on my problem. As it turns out the outlet on the rear wall that we never use was the problem. Loose wiring inside the outlet box that couldn't take the current load. Replaced the outlet with a household type and all is good again. These outlets are very poor that they build these coaches with. Hard to believe the money these cost and the poor quality pieces they build them with. Thanks to all for the assistance in leading me in some directions. I'm powered up again!
