Wall outlets not working

All my wall outlets just stopped working. I bought a tester and it shows they all have open hot. I've taken a look at the wall outlets and did not find any messed up wires. My breaker and fuses are okay. What would you suggest?

Do any of them have a (tripped) GFCI outlet?

Its been my experience that GFCI's have a shelf life not unlike a carton of eggs.

No, my refrigerator keeps eggs longer than 30 days, LOL but for all the receptacles I have changed out for friends and at work have mostly been GFCI's.

Then I am an idiot too. In my case, only one outlet did not work. It was the one on the side of the kitchen cabinet by the door. I ignored it for a while.

Later I was attempting to use the outside plug on the curbside. It’s a GFI and it was tripped. I reset it and the mystery of the kitchen outlet was solved. Duh!

I too experienced this. I am glad to help. Just think, one day you'll be able to pass it forward.

GFCI Outlet Circuit

In my 17’ Spirit Deluxe Casita, the outside outlet is “behind” and controlled by the GFCI outlet on the side of the stove/sink by the dinette. One night during a driving rainstorm while camping the GFCI “tripped”; it must have been moisture from the rain. I figured out the situation because I had my cell phone charging from the GFCI outlet and when the power dropped, the phone lit up.

No it was higher near the shelf where the TV goes. Here I am looking lower.
