Electrical outlet issue

Noticed this morning that three of my outlets are not working, while the rest do……the one under the sink, under the table and the outdoor one dont work. I found the three breakers in the box and reset them but no change. Is there another breaker box, or a switch that would reactivate these outlets? Thanks

Try resetting the GFCI plugs. the one on the outside is GFCI and on my 17, the one by the kitchen sink is also a GFCI. Look closely, there should be two buttons on each receptacle; one says test, the other reset. Push the reset button firmly. Hope that works.

Glad I was able to help and that it was a simple fix. Enjoy your travels.

Over the years I would wager that 50 percent of the Escape owners have experienced the outside reaet on the outer receptacle, then, along with 50% of the owners who have accidentally flipped the 12v on/off switch under the dinette and for the trifecta plugged into a weak or inoperative campground electrical supply post. Before long, your diagnosis and positive resolution becomes almost second nature.
Have a great camping weekend.

Just to clarify one thing. Normally one GFCI receptacle protects several other conventional receptacles "downstream". Often these receptacles have a sticker indicating "GFCI" or "GFCI Protected" but they're not GFCIs.
