Zinger 5th wheel electrical problem

Have 31ft.rear kitchen model and the outside receptacle and the receptacle in rear of kitchen are not working. GFCI over the sink kept tripping so we replaced it but the new one does the same. We replaced it with a regular receptacle to see what would happen and it works but the other 2 still do not work. The fuses and breakers are all ok.
Does anyone have access to an electrical schematic for this model or know what might be the problem.

Had a similar problem where plugging into any 20 amp CGFI on the house popped it but regular connection was fine. Also had slide receptacles not working. Never got definitive answers or figured out exactly what was going on but suspect there is a connection (or failed connection, lol).

I did discover through exploratory surgery that receptacles and wire connectors in these units are quick connects which can fail totally or intermittently but look OK. There are also connection boxes in odd and nearly impossible to get to locations.

I'm looking forward to more group wisdom on this thread. Sorry I don't have an easy answer.

We finally diagnosed the problem. If you are inside standing looking at back of trailer we have left to right, stove, fridge and then cabinets at corner. On the right wall between those cabinets and slide for table and couch, low on wall there is an electrical access cover. We opened that up and one wire was not attached properly. Fixed that and now everything works again
