electric receptacles not working

We are in our 2013 vista 35b on our way to Disney fort wilderness from md. About half of the electric receptacles are not working. I checked the fuse panel and reset all 3 zones but did not work. Any ideas? Thanks

I had the same thing happen on my previous diesel pusher, and it was a circuit breaker on the inverter. On my coach there were two little buttons on the inverter, and one of them had tripped and I lost power to 1/2 of the outlets. Pushed it back in and everything was fine. Hope this helps.

GFCI's are a common cause of this. If outlets are inverter powered check breakers there. If 50a coach I have seen a loose shore power cord allowing one of the 120v sides to not have power.

As others have already noted, I'd check all the GFI's. I have one in the water closet that's on the drivers-sidewall and never used, that trips and takes out the entire passenger-sidewall.

While under warranty, a Winnebago actually cut into the flooring of the living area and kitchen (and did a pretty poor repair of that flooring putting it back together) trying to find the problem. They didn't realize that the GFI had tripped.

I have never figured out why it trips, but at least it only takes a second to get all the 110v power back. -RT

In my coach, the most common cause of "dead receptacles" is a tripped "pop-out" circuit breaker on the face of my inverter.....(another is a tripped GFCI receptacle).
Each of those 2 pop-out breakers kills the power to 9-10 receptacles.
A tripped GFCI only kills the power to a few, (1-3), receptacles.
