No power to outlets in kitchen slide out

Hi, I'm looking for advice on how to troubleshoot an electrical problem on my slide out. I checked all the breakers and gfi.The outlet to the refrigerator and two others in the slide out are dead. Have power to the microwave in the slide out. There are 2 black wires under slide going into the floor one is hot and the other one is not.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

The microwave should have it's own breaker and wiring to the main panel. So my advice is to start as follows:
1. Turn breakers off/on to ensure they got reset.
2. Check the power outlet with a multi-meter and see if you are getting power. If no power pull the outlet loose and check at the wires.
3. If the above doesn't work get a multi-meter and verify that you are getting power to the breaker. You might have to take the panel loose to get to the wires.
2a. If you don't have power coming in start going upstream.
2b. If you don't have power on the output side replace the breaker.
2c. If you have power in and out of the breaker start going downstream.

Watch for fuses and breakers. I've found random ones installed at the weirdest locations. I usually find a way to move them to a more "logical" location.

I'm not sure from your post but there are usually two GFI's, be sure to check both.

It could be a bad connection in the quick snap connector in the under carriage

I have a gfi below the back window on my crossroads 2012 330s Sahara. It supplies electricity to the kitchen slide. Trips easily if someone plugs something into it without being careful.

Bathroom gfi

My kitchen outlets run through my bathroom gfi. If it blows the kitchen outlets don't work.

This happened to us also. Check under the slide where the wires come in. That doohinky that holds the wires up out of the way was broken and wires were rubbing on tire. They need to replace/ fix wires and replace that doohinky that holds the wires up. Same was happening on the other side so we fixed before it broke.⁷
