Electrical outlets

We are plugged into 30 amp outlet at the campground. Everything is working but the outside electrical outlet close to the door (Four Winds 31 W) and the receptical over the sofa and the one by the sink in the kitchen. We do not see that any circuit breakers are tripped.
Any thoughts or help?

Flip your battery switch to use and see if those two outlets maybe run just on the battery?

It was the GFI in the bathroom that had tripped.

AC outlets don't run off the battery unless there's an inverter involved.

My AC outlet are all run on inverter. I have a Thor chateau. When my generator doesn't work and I'm not hooked up to electric, just the house lights work and the stovetop fan.
Service guy told me the battery needs jumped to start the generator. I find that odd when everything else works. Any thoughts?

Sounds like your battery is too dead to start the generator, but the lights and stove fan will run at very low battery voltage.
