Most lighting in rigs is 12-volts DC.
You won't be looking for fuses and not circuit breaker.
Chance that the power umbilical cord under the slide has pulled loose.

Yes, Unplug your electrical plug from the trailer and clean the trailer connections on the side of your trailer and then use some steel wool to clean connectors on the electrical cord. Blow out any debris. Plug in the electrical cord and remove, do it about 3 times. Then plug it back in. This should solve your problem.

Hi I had the washing machine on before all the power sockets in the bedroom stopped on another forum I was told could be the washing machine which rattled the wires out of the back of one of the sockets

try turning off all circuit breakers in the rig applying light pressure toward off, then turn on main breaker (if equipped) followed by branch breakers one at a time.
How are you connecting to the rig? 30 or 50 amp? any adapters?

That's a good possibility. Sounds to me like you should be looking for a loose/barely holding on connection. Try pulling all the receptacles out of the boxes (if they have one) in the bedroom and check the connections.
