Is it a GFCI circuit? I would check the reset in the bathroom.

I have a 31s and had the same problem. I found a louse wire at the transfer switch. I then started checking all of the junction boxes and found most of the wire nuts where loose. another time at the camp site the power went out, I traced it back with a tester and found where you plug in shore power the white wire pulled out. piss poor quality

Do you have an Inverter? Residential frig? Maybe the Inverter's breakers are open.

Windsport 35M would have residential fridge... which means an inverter as Tfryman mentioned - that would provide power to the fridge AND TV's typically...

Would be a breaker in the normal panel to feed the inverter (you said you checked those...)
Should be breakers on the inverter to protect against overload... but can't help you on where that would be on your rig.

Don't know what inverter you have - but guessing a hair dryer, fridge, and TV might be too much for it. Hair dryer should probably go into a non-inverter supplied outlet - which means shore power or genny to use.

I also experienced the loose wire at the plug in on the side of my Ace 30.1. I also agree there are some quality issues but these things run up and down some of the worst roads, vibrating and shaking and things are going to get loose. Kind of like my boats. Just have to keep an eye on things and tweak them occasionally.
