Lost three outlets, need help!

We were in Jackson Center Monday, lovely tour with Don, stayed overnite, no issues, la-de-da. Now we are on way to work for a week, and have lost three outlets. Curb side dinette, By bathroom sink, the one tv plugs into ( only we do not have a tv). I checked fuse box, I read my nearly complete Guide to Maintainence book, no where does it say HOW to make the outlets work again. Two are Gaif outlets, no reset button on them. I'm just an old lAdy trying to figure out what I hope will be an easy fix.

Please can someone guide me? No appliances, no microwave, we have the huge power protector thingy where u plug into CG and nice green light is on. Thank you in advance.

When you say you checked the fuse box. Do you mean the power panel?
Did you turn off ALL the breakers, then turn them back on?
Check the outlet in the bath and all others in the coach. Look for one that has a "test" and "reset" button. If so make sure there is nothing plugged into any outlets, then push the reset button.
Let us know what happens.

First thing to check is the 110 volt breakers in the converter box. If those are all set, the next thing to check is the GFCI outlet with the reset button on it. You should have one of those.

If you have an outside outlet check it for moisture if the GFCI won't reset.

Oh so only one outlet has reset button, will look for it. I will turn 110 off than back on. When I say fuse box. I mean bix below the closet that has the breakers and the fuses. Be right back.

Ok i have five outlets plus one outside, non of the outlets have a reset button. I opened bix,mfound 20 amp switch, and a TEST button. I pushed the test button and did not feel anything happen. Then I pushed 20 amp all the way down then up. I tested the three outlets. Everybody working. Thank you, thank you thank you.

To some people that is just a normal thing to know to do. To me, not so much. I knew it was not deadly, just an easy fix,
I wish the book had said that. Thank you again, tomorrow
I will ponder the why did it hapoen to three outlets including one we never use. For now I am A VERY HAPPY CAMPER. Thanks again. I will write this down.

There is more than one outlet which is protected by a single circuit breaker. In your case, at least three. Possibly more.

There should be labels for each circuit breaker in the panel or on the panel door indicating what each one protects.

As a backup, your Airstream user manual should have a wiring diagram with the same information.

On my WFCO 9555 the GFCI Test/Reset is on the panel next to the AC circuit breakers, not on any of the outlets.
