Where is the GFCI reset?

I have a 2022 Thor Sequence 20J van. Since I bought it a year ago, I've been complaining about a faulty solar panel. Finally, it got replaced and billed to the warranty, yay! But, suddenly, many of the outlets in my van are dead (yes the inverter is on.) The outlet for the microwave, TV and one other outlet under the TV work fine. But, all the other outlets are dead. Many of them are labeled with
"GFCI protected" stickers. But, there is no outlet anywhere with a reset button. Also, I found the breaker panel in the back, nothing was tripped, I reset everything anyway and same thing. Is there another panel somewhere with a GFCI reset? Is there another outlet somewhere with a reset button that I'm failing to see?

Must be another outlet somewhere I would think. Maybe in an outside storage compartment?

You could call Thor warranty division and ask them. Also ask them for the schematics for the van. That should include the electrical, plumbing, LP gas (if it has it) etc.

Make sure you give them the last 4 of the VIN number.

Maybe not totally related but I found this that is interesting.

Most of the time GFCI outlets with the reset are located near a water source. It is usually found in a bathroom or near a sink. They sometimes have one on the exterior where a TV is located(exterior mounted TV) or where there is an exterior 110 outlet.

A GFCI outlet will also protect all outlets wired downstream of it. So look for an outlet, not necessarily in the bathroom, that has a GFCI reset button.

As David said, there's usually only one GFCI outlet containing the reset/test buttons... then the rest (labeled GFCI protected) are daisy-chained on that same circuit.

Your challenge is to find the one with the reset button. Note that GFCI outlets tend to fail - especially the lesser quality ones used in RVs. They're $10 at big box stores or Amazon.
