2018 Ultra-Lite Electrical

Our 2018 Sunset Trail 331BH has suddenly lost power to the fridge. Fridge is running on gas. All fuses and breakers seem fine and the only things that are not working are the outlet above the counter by the stove and the fridge. Microwave works, light and stove hood work all in that slide. Fridge plug and outlet both have GFCI stickers but we can't find a reset the affects them. There is a GFI on the island and one in the bunkhouse, neither of which affect the outlet or the fridge. The fridge and outlet have worked fine for over a year, so this is a new issue.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Electrical on these darn trailers can be tricky and a real pain at times. Mainly because it seems like who ever is doing the job at the time does it his way and not necessarily by code. Plus it's usually impossible to find a wiring diagram.

They seem to put a GFI by, or close to all the water outlets, sinks etc. You might have one more there than what you have found. Also, I see your fridge in installed in a slide. Check underneath that slide for a junction box. If there is one there open it and check for moisture/water. They are notorious for getting water in them. While you are in there, make sure all the wire nuts are tight and all connections tight. When you close it back up, seal it with silicone to keep it dry.

I'm not saying this is your problem, just giving you things to check that I've seen in the past.
Good luck.

Thank you. Right about that wiring diagram, we have searched and searched! Looked and didn't see a junction box under the slide but will look more closely. It is very frustrating and just crazy, shouldn't be this hard, lol.

We had a similar problem. The fridge was plugged into an AC outlet behind the external fridge access panel. Some times water would get in and trip the GFI, which was the bathroom outlet. Once it dried out it would work again. My guess would be a GFI somewhere.
