2011 zinger 29bh electrical outlets

So I have 5 total outlets out of 6 not working up front and on living slide. Gfci in bathroom not tripped all outlets in back of camper work along with outside outlets working. Didnt see any breakers tripped (reset all them) all fuses look good. What am I missing?
Thank you

Have you looked to see if there is a junction box attached to the frame under the slide?
They have been known to not be sealed and get wet. Also the wires in the box are usually joined with wire nuts, which come loose. If you find that to be the case, when you re tighten the wire nuts, tape them together good with electrical tape.

Have you pulled the wall plates on the plugins to see if the wires have come loose there?
Just a couple things to check.

Usually there are at least two gfci outlets. Check for a second outlet that may be tripped.

I was having a similar issue, none of my outlets were working. I had a GFCI in the kitchen on the other side of the sink that had tripped. Once I reset it my outlets started working.
Good Luck!

Try tripping the bathroom gfci and check if that turns off the power to the remaining outlets that work. If it shuts off the power then I would continue your search for another gfci. My gfci's are in the bathroom and kitchen.

By any chance is there a GFCI in the fridge compartment outside?

Microwave outlet would be another place to check.

Been away from camper but microwave and fridge are single plugs hooked to the gfci in bathroom im assuming the whole camper is on one gfci. Checked the junction boxes all looks good

Perhaps someone replaced a GFCI with a regular outlet. i would pull all the outlets and look for a disconnected wire that may be feeding the outlets that aren't working. Look for an outlet that may be a slightly different style from the rest of the outlets. If you find one that could be where a GFCI was replaced. If it was originally a GFCI it would be feeding the other outlets.

Update i finally found the 2nd gfci was not tripped it was under the upper cabinet was sanding them and bumped into it. I ended up replacing the front outlets with house outlets in shallow boxes and everything works now. Thanks for all the help
