No power to 110V outlets

I woke up this morning and discovered I have no 110V power to the 3 outlets that are for the TV's (front entertainment area and in the sleeping area). The coach is a 2015 Chateau 28F. I tried resetting all of the circuit breakers and no luck. I had a 110 V electric heater pluged into the outlet and it ran last night. I did run an extension cord to the tv's from the GFI outlets and the tv's work. I'm wondering if their is another breaker that I am overlooking or thinking the circuit breaker got toasted. Any help would be appreciated!

You mention 3 TVs so if one is exterior it is possible they are tied into a GFCI outlet that has tripped. That is one place I would begin looking.

Actually, it is the inside outlets, the outside tv is hooked to a GFI and it is working. I'm about to test the circuit breaker to see if it is fried. Thanks for your response its appreciate. I'll keep trying till I get it.

The GCFI will have several plugs tied to it, if you have more than one reset all of them. Ours is next to bathroom sink & affects half the plugs in the coach.

I checked the circuit breaker and it looks good. I stumped now. I sent an email to Thor to see what they can tell me what to try next..

Agree with previous comments. It sure sounds like you have a GFCI tripped.

On my Vegas the outside AC plugs and the plugs by the kitchen sink are all tied to the AC plug in the bathroom on the bottom of the cabinet above the toilet (picture attached). So any ground faults on any of these plugs will trip the GFCI switch on the bathroom plug. In other words a ground fault felt at the plug on the outside of the coach will trip the GLCI in the bathroom.

Very easy to trip the one in the bathroom by the wife while plugging in the hair dryer also. She's done it twice before and has become more cautious of doing so.

Well, after contacting Thor, they suggested checking the junction box under the bed. I used a circuit tester and found I had power to all the outlets, but no neutral. Under the bed their are several junction boxes. I opened each one and checked the tightness of the wire nuts. Thor did a good job of taping each wire nut, but when I got to the junction box on the wall at the foot of the bed, as soon as I turned the wire nut the power came on. The wire nut was taped, but was not tight thus the neutral was not making contact, and no power. You have to have hot and neutral for a complete circuit. The GFCI was not he issue this time. Thanks for everyone's help..
