AC front receptacle for TV has no power

The front AC receptacle for the TV has no AC voltage. I haven't been able to find the source wire termination. The diagram I have for the coach, 2002 38 FD, is for a 40 foot coach and indicates a entertainment center ckt breaker but mine has no breaker. Where does the power to the front originate?

Do you have the ignition on or is the coach running? There is a box installed that prevents the TV from being turned on when the coach is running or the ignition is on. If not, you could also potentially have an issue with the safety mechanism. Try testing the actual wires.

There are 4 receptacles and none have power. I am aware of the "TV" receptacle" but I don't use it.
Thanks for the reply

….believe the TV plug is tied to the inverter breaker panel [black], usually located in the master bathroom area ..probably listed as a common plug...vs specifically for TV or entertainment....

I found the problem. The feed for the front starts at the light switch for the ceiling light over the sink/stove. I tried to remove the switch to replace it, as I thought it felt soft. I pulled the feed to the front off the switch. The wires are very short so I added pigtails for the replacement switch, and it very soft also. Waste of time.
