Bedroom electrical sockets stopped working

Any troubleshooting ideas?
They were working fine then nothing, I have a 2014 26RLS.
Fuses are fine, GFI is fine, other sockets in the rest of the trailer work fine.

I'm puzzled.

Fuses only apply to the 12V items like lights and the fridge. I don't believe the bedroom outlets would be on GFI since they are not near a water source. I would start by turning off the breakers then turning them back on. Sometimes a breaker will trip but not appear to be tripped. If that doesn't work, I'd pull the circuit panel from the wall (shore power disconnected) and make sure the wires at the breakers are tight.

Thanks
I did the breaker off and in thing, and I noticed when they are off a red led lights up to indicate it's tripped or off.
Where and how do I remove the wall circuit panel?

Not sure about yours but mine has a few screws holding the trim cover over the panel. One the cover panel is off, there are about 16 screws that hold the panel to the plywood behind it. Another possibility is an outlet in that circuit is bad and not feeding the downstream outlets.

Had that same issue on our WH. Turned out that one of the wire nuts in a junction box had come loose. Not sure about your rig, but our junction boxes were behind the control panel and behind the carbon monoxide detector - not the easiest to get to. Just be sure you're unplugged from shore power before messing in the control panel and junction boxes - from experience, you'll get quite a jolt if you touch the wrong wire while the power is on.

I have GFCI receptacles in three places on my 5th wheel.... Kitchen Sink area, Bathroom area, and washup sink area in the bedroom...

When they trip many receptacles down the line goes OFF too...

Trip the GFI then reset it and see if that helps.. sometimes they need a "Gibbs head slap"

Ok, so I got home from our trip and everything is back working again. My wife thinks a loose wire somewhere.
I may need to pull sockets out one at a time to check wiring,
Thanks everyone.

During our first trip we lost power to all outlets except the one the microwave was plugged in to. Our gfci wouldn't reset either. It ended up being the outside outlet had a wire that wiggled loose. the wires are just inserted and tightened with the screw, but after replacing all the outlets in our house I've found that curling the wire around the screw and tightening is far better. I'd bet you have something loose somewhere.
