I was using an extension cord pluged into the outside

Customer Question

I was using an extension cord pluged into the outside reseptical of my mobile home. The cord shorted out at the receptical and tripped the breaker. After reseting the breaker there is still no power to that patr6 of the trailer. There is power coming out of the breaker but nothing will work that is supplied by that breaker. It is on a gfci circuit. I replaced the gfci receptacle thinking it might have been damaged. Still no power. Any suggestions?

1) Do you have either a 2 wire lead AC voltage tester (a contact type) or a multi-meter to take some voltage measurements?
