Circuit breakers?
Is the RV still plugged in?
Inverter driven?

Double-check the breakers by switching them solidly off and then back on.


Carefully feel and listen how they click when they change position.


If one feels mushy or doesn't have the "snap" of the others, you've got a bad breaker.


Also cycle the test and reset on the GFCI outlets. Sometimes (my TT has this) other outlets are downstream from the GFCI's.


Open the panel and look for loose screws, corroded connections and possible broken wires.


If you have a good VOM or DVM you can check the neutral wire of the faulty outlets to see if you've got damaged ROMEX between the panel and the outlets.

I vote for a tripped or bad circuit breaker. After eliminating the circuit breaker, then you have to start looking at the wiring on the outlets; given the symptoms it would more likely be close to the breaker panel.

X2 on Mike837go's VOM or DVM. You should probably have one in your toolkit anyway. Cheap ones are under $5 at Harbor Freight, $12-15 will get you a decent one at Lowes or Home Depot.

I believe all of the 120V receptacles are on the same circuit. It goes to the GFI first and then all the other receptacles are on the load side of the GFI. Odd that the GFI works but not the others. Have you tried pushing the test and then reset button on the GFI receptacle?

You may have a "hidden" GFI, supplying the others. Look at where your water heater is plugged in, or the outlet inside the fridge back, where the fridge plugs in. Also, if there is an outlet in any storage area, check that as well....

I think it's the gfi. The outlets are daisy chained, if you have a bad connection behind the gfi you would loose power to the daisy chained outlets.

Usually only the microwave and ac ate on there our breaker without a gfi.
