Just suddenly I lost power to the 2nd restroom in the mobile home. Checked for a trip breaker and they were all fine.

I did noticed that the there is no voltage to the left side of the electrical panel except for one or two breakers. I checked each one of them with a meter.

any suggestions?

please see attached picture of the electrical panel

thanks

Did you check for voltage across the two main lugs feeding the panel? You could have a problem feeder to your home.

If every second breaker (on both sides) has lost power but others are still on,
then you've lost one leg.
If you've lost one leg AND you have 240V across the main lugs at the top
right, then the main breaker is faulty. Call an electrician.
If you've lost one leg AND you don't have 240V across the main lugs at the top
right, the feed is open somewhere. Call the power company.

if you only lost power to the restroom, could it be the GFI and not in the panel at all? Some restrooms are fed from a GFI outside the restroom too, so check them all. I was in a house once where the GFI feeding the restooms was in the garage,
