THOR #20560
Outlet above sink not working

We own a 2015 Thor Citation 24SR. Camping this weekend we needed heat because our furnace didn't work - plugged a space heater into outlet above sink around midnight and worked fine until around 5:00 am. Got cold - space heater was off - Nothing worked - so checked the GFCI under the sink and reset it - still nothing. The GFCI works and holds a reset and so do all the other outlets work. The light near the outlet under the sink even works. Checked breakers - all were good and so were the other outlets by the bed. Need some thoughts on this. Want to make coffee in kitchen not the bathroom!

Time for a volt meter.

Most RVs have another GFCI receptacle in the bathroom also.

It could be tied into the GFCI Outlet in the bathroom. You might want to check that one too. Did you check to make sure the heater is still working in another outlet?

Either another GFCI has tripped as others have mentioned, or
The breaker has tripped but doesn't look like it has, and needs to be reset.
There is a loose wire connection either at this outlet or upstream of it - common RV outlet issue.

The lights are 12 VDC and have nothing to do with 120 VAC outlets.
