Canít find GFCI outlet reset

Hi folks, I have a dilemma just pop up when we were readying to leave. I have 4 outlets not working which I have determined to all be on the GFCI circuit. All other outlets and electrical are working, just not these. The outlets are one in bath, one above sink in kitchen, one below seat in dinette and one outside mounted on the outside wall by the outside TV. None of these have the test or reset button. Outside TV is NOT on this circuit as it works. Does anyone know where the GFCI reset outlet would be. I have searched all in the basement and inside to no avail. IĎve checked all breakers and throwing the GFCI does nothing so I know itís that circuit. You would think a GFCI reset outlet would be in a prominent place!! I have a 2018 Challenger 37 YT.

This isnít an emergency, just frustrating. If anyone can offer suggestions on what to do or where else to look, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

It should be in the bathroom. Did you look very carefully at that switch-there are very different looking switches for resetting GFI. On homes now, some GFI reset switches are part of the circuit breakers in the AC panel. Check again and then call Thor.

I could only suggest looking outside in the bay on the ceiling where one might be mounted 'out of the way', and of course, sometimes unseen.

All the outlets have a flat face and look alike except the one outside, it says GFCI protected but has none hav3 buttons on them. I have included pics. Sorry the one is upside down!

There has to be one Iím not finding but dang it, a GFCI shouldnít be tucked away as itís not uncommon for them to trip. I cheated and reset the GFCI breaker as i am familiar with the house ones in the breaker box but itís just a normal breaker. Thanks for the help, eventually Iíll find it!

Check for another outlet in the bathroom-up higher, maybe in a cabinet. I do not think they can mount the GFI receptacle at the floor level of an RV.

By the way, the trip and reset buttons are black unlike the normal house outlets.

Okay, after exhaustive looking, I found the wayward GFCI reset outlet.... it was under the bathroom mirror cabinet, neatly hidden where you could barely see it. Iím a little embarrassed but I also have to admit, I havenít known about it until today, never knew the BR had more than the one which is CLEARLY visible mounted to a cabinet wall!

Thanks for all the responses and ideas to help, you guys are a great and invaluable source of knowledge!
