Exclamation Need Troubleshooting help

I own a 2018 Jayco Eagle fifth wheel, 325BHQS. Oddly, today, my full size refrigerator went out, the outlet behind the TV does not work , and the outlet above the stove does not have power either. I have checked all fuses and they are still good. Not sure if they're related issues but it happened today after we both left for work. Everything out is located on the left side of the camper. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? Please help.

Update:
I switched the battery off then back to on and now have a humming noise coming from under the bathroom floor, but fridge and outlets work

Check your ground fault outlet.

Is there an inverter that powers the fridge and TV located under there? Check the basement compartments under that area.

Sounds like an inverter problem to me also.
You say full size fridge, is it a residential fridge that does not run on propane? If so, you have an inverter that runs off of the batteries when not on shore power.

Yes, there is. And when I switched the battery to off then back on, the fridge turned on and the outlets started working. Is my inverter faulty/going bad?

Maybe not going bad, but it sounds like a loose wire or loose connection, which has been an ongoing issue with Jayco's workmanship. You need to check out all the wiring connections between the battery and inverter, and from the inverter to the outlets. If they are loose or shorting out, it can be a major fire hazzard.

What happens with loose connections is that the wire gets hot and expands when the appliance is on, then cools off when the appliance cycles off. This repeated hot/cold cycle can cause a short/overheating/fire at the bad connection.
