Do you have one of the small receptacle testers? Little yellow plug in device. This will help telling whether it is getting power or whether one of the legs is open.
Use a volt meter and check to insure you have power out of the inverter(s)
Remove the gfci recptacles from the wall, test with voltmeter to verify that you have 120 volts AC on the load terminals. GFCI receptacles protect down stream devices with this function.

Have you checked at the inverter circuit breakers for 120 volt power?
Have you checked each circuit brekers at 120 volt AC distribution panel for 120 volt output?
Use the small three light plug in tester at all other 120 volt receptacles to see if any others are dead

Is thus an onboard genset or a portable?
If you have tried operating rig with onboard genset set only, you need to check for proper output from genset going to transfer switch.
Make and model of genset?

Ok. Good news!!! After 4 knowledgeable friends looked at and researched the problem, one made a second visit and in the breaker box happened to touch the wire and noticed it was loose. Sooooo
Tightened the set screw and fixed the issue. One loose screw caused several 120 volt outlets to not have power.
