2006 safari trek over loaded 110 outlet (hair dryer, coffee pot, sandwich maker). Microwave and AC still work. Only 1 GFI located in bathroom. No power at that outlet. Reset power pedestal and all breakers in distribution panel. No luck. Do I need to look at inverter-charger?

Yes.
Check for a tripped breaker on the inverter-charger itself, (what malexander said in reply #2).

IF you do indeed have an INVERTER (Does the kitchen outlet work when NOT plugged in or using a generator?) then yes. that is likely your problem.. The breakers may be on the inverter (most factory installs) or in a "SUB Panel" 2nd breaker box. Mine is in a cabinet).

If you do not have an inverter (or that is not the issue) then I would start by a visual inspection of the wires and connections in the power distribution (Breaker box) panel. UNPLUG (and kill any generators) use a flashlight and make sure all screws are TIGHT.

Then move to the GFCI and check for burned or broken connections behind it.

That's all I can give you

But if you have an inverter odds are like 99%+ that's it.  Tripped breaker.
