Angry Where is GFCI in 2008 Safari?

We have 2008 Safari 28 feet. Several circuits are out but all fuses seem ok.
I suspect the GFCI needs to be reset but can't find where to do it. Several outlets say they are protected but do not have reset button.

If it is not in the circuit breaker panel it will be the closest receptacle to the panel that is effected.

Make sure it is not in the panel first. Panel mounted breakers do not always move the toggle all the way to the off position so feel each one by putting slight pressure on the toggle towards the off position. A popped breaker will move while those still on will not move without additional force and then they will snap.

Check each effected receptacle for a reset button. Most likely the bathroom

It is most likely in the A/C circuit breaker panel. Ours has a small yellow test button on the circuit breaker.

We have looked at all receptacles but not found it. It is not on the circuit board. There are several lights affected throughout the camper, so it is not just the outlets. TV's don't work either. Of course, they are plugged in. Help!

If you have lights also affected, you have more going on than GFCI. The lights are run by 12v DC (your battery system).
You need to describe more about your environment. Are you plugged into shore power? Are you at home or in a campground. What is working and what is not. Etc.

Yes please give greater detail.

Some lights but not all and some receptacles but not all and can't find the GFI in a modern trailer we need more detail.

The only connection between the lights and the 110 receptacles is the convertor charging the batteries. If you had ALL lights out I would suggest you check the 110 receptacle feeding the convertor and test for dead batteries. But if you have some lights that is not the problem.

Everything you listed would logically be on the GFI.

It is almost certain to be in the electric panel.

You had mentioned some lights did not work. All the lights are 12 volt and would not have anything to do with the 110 volt ac power because you had mentioned that the pump, refg control circuit, and other 12 volt items are working. Some 12 volts lights have a local switch on the fixture and may also have a wall mounted switch. If you Granddaughter is like mine, turns switches on and off just because they are there, look for a second switch that you do not normally use

Smile Problem Solved!

I finally got in touch with the previous owner of our Airstream.
There is a reset button on the INVERTOR, which is located under the front couch. Once I reset this button everything worked.
Thanks for all of your suggestions.
Frank
