Microwave Outlet

Last night everything was working as it should. Got up this morning and there is no power to the microwave outlet. Breaker wasn't tripped, pulled the outlet and no power on the wires. Got power coming from the microwave breaker but wires are dead at the outlet. Any ideas?

Every plug in the rv works but that one. Everything in the rv works but that outlet. I'm guessing the wire runs from the breaker straight to the outlet. I'm baffled..lol

Is the micro located in the slide? If so there may be a junction box on the outside of the frame under the slide that may have a bad connection. Ususlly they get water in them.

I had my GFI under my island counter that controls the microwave. Didn't even see the outlet. Finally found it and reset it. Microwave went back on.

I didn't see a junction box under the slide. I looked under the sink for a plug, didn't see one. The only gfi outlets I see with a reset is the ones in the bathrooms. Was yours under the sink?

Under the outside of the sink cabinet. Right below the counter that extends beyond the cabinet.

Thanks everyone for the input. Finally found the problem. It was the wire pinched between two pieces of wood which made the cheap plastic plug at the frame rail overheat.
