Circuit breakers in '09 International 25FB

We seem to have tripped the circuit breaker with overload by plugging in two appliances at the same time. All outlets except one in bedroom do not work. Fridge and TV don't work, either. The Airstream instruction manual is useless (says panel is under dinette when it's actually in the bedroom). At any rate, testing the GFCI doesn't work. When pressing test button, nothing happens. Fuses seem to be OK. Any ideas?

You're gonna get answers from more experienced than me, but testing the GFCI will cause it to trip or disconnect power. It must then be reset to restore power. Are you at home or at a camp? Doesn't hurt to start over from your power connection, make sure all breakers are not tripped and in a mid way position between ON and OFF. To reset, push to off then back to on. Remove all connected loads, try again.

Good luck.

make sure you turn breakers to off then back on to reset.
the breaker has to be set to off to reset.
happens to us when my wife uses blow drier and forgets to turn off electric heater.

The breakers are in the same panel as the converter and 12 volt fuses.

To reset the GFCI once popped or tested push all the way down first, then up to reset.

Do you have an inverter??

If so check to make sure the inverter breaker (located on the inverter) has not tripped.

Circuit breaker

Thanks, everyone! It was a Sunday morning and we were stumped! Turns out we blew the circuit breaker and it had to be replaced. With a trip to Home Depot and the help of a fellow Airstreamer, with electrical knowledge, we got it fixed.
