looked all over the bathroom, kitchen, dinette, front bedroom, most outlets have a sticker saying gfci protected... after getting the fluke out and checking everything in the breaker panel, and the j-boxes that go to the slide, everything basically looked good. so next i have the ah-ha moment, maybe it's in the bunk-room, i didn't look there because its way in the back, couldn't possibly be where the reset for the kitchen is located could it... well, it was, the gfci outlet is in the bunk-room, on the back wall of the trailer. power problem solved, hit the reset and good to go. boy do i feel like an idiot.
The TV still doesn't work at all, won't turn on, took it out and tried it in the house later with no success, hopefully the dealer will help me out on that one...dvd player plays intermittently, same disc will work one time and not the next. so the electronics issue is unrelated to the fridge power issue. i swapped out the tv from our bedroom for now, so i'm back in business other than getting a replacement for the original..
thanks again for all of your help, nice to know there are folks out there who will share ideas and solutions, i really appreciate it.
