Electrical outlets not working

We have a 2014 Coachman Liberty Express. Two outlets above the sink and one just below the sink are not working. Checked fuses and they are good. All the other outlets work. Any suggestions on how to fix this. Thanks

Besides obviously checking circuit breakers, Check that the GFCI on one of the nearby outlets are reset. (ask me how I know! )

Electrical outlets not working

Thank you. The only GFCI we found was in the bathroom. It works. Just the three outlets in the kitchen are not working. Any other suggestions?

How many breakers do you have for outlets. My windjammer has only one. The reason I ask this question is that if you have two breakers then you might have two GFI's. If you only have one outlet then you have a loose or missing wire at one of the outlets in the run.

You don't say what model Freedom Express. If you have an outside kitchen, you might have a GFI in it. Also check the outside outlet.

Thank you all very much. We will check the outside outlet. Not with camper right now. It is at the campground but going there tonight. You have probably solved our problem.

Our GFCI is on the outlet under the dining table seat. Rarely used outlet, so it was a surprise to see it there.

We had a similar issue with our 323MK Wildcat this year but at my house. Plugged my 50 amp trailer into a 110 house outlet (after downsizing to 30amp then 15 amp adapters). No outlets would work. Took it into our dealer and discovered my hardwired EMS wouldn't allow the trailer outlets to work. It was doing its job. Told to just turn off the EMS because the low amperage house outlets wouldn't harm the electronics in the trailer. Did it and now the outlets work fine at my house. If you have a surge protector check it out. It may be protecting your trailer.

I would be very careful taking any suggestions from the person who told you this as it it wrong. GFI's and EMS units sometimes don't play well together when connecting RV's to garage outlets

I had same problem but gfci wouldn't reset after it tripped while DW was trying to use a blow dryer. 2 downstream outlets would'nt work. Turned out to be a bad gfci outlet. Replaced and all worked well after that. There was an outlet in the cargo bay that was hard to find that wasn't working and one one the island.

Is there a way to check the GFI outlets besides the reset button?
