Electric outlets no power

2017 364TS, suddenly no power to outlets by door, for TV in cabinet above sink and just to left of microwave. Checked fuses and breakers, all good and on. Digital multimeter registered no lights which legend states is "open hot". There is a sticker that says they are GFCI but no button to pop in and out like at home. Any suggestions?

Generally, there is only one (possibly 2) GFCI master outlet with the Test and Reset buttons. The others MAY BE labeled as GFCI PROTECTED but they are not master outlets. You need to find the master outlet - often in the bathroom - and press the reset button on it.

Gotta love this forum! I spent the whole morning trying to find the "secret breaker" that controlled all the outlets on the passenger side of our 2021 GT7. I had no idea the GFI in the bathroom would control all the outlets in the kitchen. One more thing to give thanks for today, Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Most, and I’ll repeat…..most GFCI master outlets will be found in the bathroom.
Their purpose is to trip quickly if there’s a outlet fault….usually found in close proximity to water or dampness.

Therefore, if you test your GFCI master outlet, you’ll probably find the bathroom outlet, any outlets within arms reach of the kitchen faucet/sink, and any outside outlets because you could be standing on wet/damp ground will be controlled by the GFCI circuit. Hitting the reset button should return power to these outlets.

Do the test and go see what your GFCI master outlet controls.

Thanks KenandTerry, I appreciate the functionality provided by the GFCI, I was surprised to see the one outlet in the bathroom controlled the entire circuit of outlets on the starboard side of the rig. At home, each GFCI is independent... good to know.

The bath GFI is linked to the kitchen receptacle thus both are protected by one GFI outlet. Why.......in the interest of the economy.

Make sense, but I almost tossed my coffee maker!
