Elec outlets not working

Outlets in kitchen area do not work--GFCI in kitchen wouldn't work (wouldn't pop in and out at all), so replaced it. Still won't work. Checked all the circuit breakers--no problem there.

Any help or experience would be appreciated. Thanks!

Don't check the breakers. Flip them off and on one at a time. Sometimes they trip and look like they are on. Only way to tell is reset it.

If the GFCI will not hold it sounds like the power coming to it was gone. But there are tons of options on different RV, so which year, model, and size like 2015 Vista 31KE will be a start on looking at where things connect and what path they take to get there.

The GFCI's will control many outlets within your unit. Have you plugged something into the other outlets? For a test you might want to unplug all the items that are plugged in, see if you can reset the GFCI when the system is clean of plug in's. Did you install the new GFCI correctly? Something else you might want to go to your main breaker panel , take the cover off and put a screw driver to all the connections to make sure they are tight. Unplug unit first however

Remember to check inverter(s) for GFCIs as well.

Electrical tester

A no-touch voltage tester from Home Depot is a great addition to your RV toolkit. If the GFCI buttons don’t respond, it probably isn’t getting power. Check other GFCIs and breakers. If no luck start testing to find where the power stops and investigate. Good luck.

It’s possible, but unlikely, there’s another GFCI that might be controlling that one although it’s more likely that the GFCI is just no longer getting power. I suggest as others have that you check all the breakers and test the back of the GFI for power.

I would remove the outlet plates from other outlets starting with the ones between the GFCI and the circuit panel. The electrical line probably comes from another outlet. If there are two 3 wire lines (6 wires) in the outlet box that you removed the cover from, it indicates one line furnishes currant to this outlet and the other line carries currant from this outlet to another one, which could be the GFCI. I have found a loose wire on outlets that should furnish currant to the GFCI.

You may have to read this slowly to decipher what I'm trying to say.
Good Luck
I have no Idea!
