Nw member with an electrical question

Hi Folks
Weve had our 2017 Zinger30RK for 3 years and love it! In a seasonal site and my wife says the kitchen is nicer than our home😮. Recently I was vacuuming in the front bedroom and the vac cut off. Assumed it was a breaker as the frig and AC were running. After a lot of debugging found that our front bedroom has no 120v and our tv console in LR has no 120v and the frig has no 120v. Checked all breakers, fuses, and GFCIs and all look good. Oddly there is no clear labeling on the breakers for the frig. Im wondering if I tripped a breaker and it is now a bad breaker? Not sure how to tell. Next step is to call a repairman in but wondering if Ive missed anything obvious? Appreciate any help
Thanks

Looking at the floor plan for the 2017 Zinger30RK,it pretty much wiped out your ac from one end to the other.
How about the bathroom? Is their a receptacle in there? If so is it a GFCI? You haven't missed a GFCI some place have you?

If you can't tell if any breakers are trip, turn them all off one at a time then back on. Some times they don't look like they are tripped but actually are. Has you breaker box got the double throw breakers?

If you have the 50 amp service check the power pole hook up for a tripped breaker. With everything that is out it could be a tripped GFCI or one leg of the 50 amp service is dead.

Thanks for the feedback Lloyd!
Bathroom and front kitchen are on GFCIs which I have tested/ reset and are ok. Another area of LR still has ac. I have reset ( turned on and offl) all breakers and pulled every fuse and visually checked them. As far as I can tell Ive found all GFCIs. And its a 30A service at the CG receptacle. Ive tested and reset that main breaker also. Kind of baffled. Thats why Im wondering if a breaker has failed and just looks good. Again Ive reset all breakers. No double-throws but looks like two breakers are ganged in a slot. I think Ive narrowed down which one might be bad but dont feel comfortable going the next step which would be to replace it...

Thanks dagst1! Ive reset the 30A service at the power pole as well as the GFCI at the power pole and the problem is not cleared. Leading me to believe the problem is in my unit...

If you are not comfortable with working on the electricity then you should call an electrician. Safety first!
