Dead outlets

The drain on our refrigerator was iced up, so I decided to tear into it and thaw out the problem. After shutting off the power to the camper it was a simple project. Turned the power back on to the camper and realized the TV didn't work (3791RD). What the heck !! Checked the outlet and it was dead. Flipped the breakers a couple times and no luck. Turns out coffee bar, Island, and slide breakers are all out. Grabbed my multimeter and head out to the pedestal ✔
Camper plug ✔
Fuse box ✔
So let's check all the outlets .... after about 2 hours of trouble shooting I finally realized that they are all tied to the bathroom GFI maybe some day I will learn to start with the simple things

Yep most of the time it’s the simple stuff. Start with the easiest thing to check that’s where you will usually find the problem.

In your defense, only in an RV would the TV be tied to a GFI in the bathroom.
