Check underneath the slide. I had a 2006 bighorn and the wire loom would rub against the tires until the wires finally separated.

Is this a residential refrigerator or gas electric? If residential it should be on a separate decacated outlet and which is also powered by an invertor. Fridge either residential or gas electric will never be the main electric on a GFCI.

You could also be missing one of your hot legs of 120 vac power. Are you on 50 amp or 30 amp service?

Check the fuses. Is it plugged in or not?

In addition to the previous suggestions also check to be sure the electric feed wires under the slides are not pinched or cut fro slide movement. I had a like problem with my stove once. The propane lead was pinched shutting off the propane to the stove.
