Coach Electricity out

The power to my coach is out. I've looked in manual for breakers, fuse boxes, etc. and can not find any solutions. TV's work, refer works, no problems with chassis. We are plugged into power, generator works....
I am thinking maybe batteries are dead but nothing was on to cause this.
as we had just stopped after driving a few hours.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you are talking 12 volt, check the salesman switch by the entrance door. Sometimes gets flipped by someone going in or out. If you have lost 120 volt outlets, check for tripped GFCI being tripped.

Welcome to iRV2.

Sorry you're here with problems .

Just need to clarify some things .
The way I read about your problem , you have no 120 volt power in the coach for the outlets or roof air conditioners . Is this the situation ?
You have no change if you're plugged into shore power or running the gen set . Correct ?
The fridge and TVs operate , but the fridge may be operating on propane and the TVs off an inverter.
Is the fridge an RV type or residential ?
If the fridge is an RV type , it requires 12 volt power for the control board , so you must have battery power.
You haven't mentioned ; lights . Do your interior lights work ?
Have you looked for tripped GFIC outlets ? Most coaches have two and a tripped GFIC could shut down 4 or 5 outlets. Kitchen and bathroom are the normal locations.

Check the power you are "plugged into" Sounds like one of electrical supply lines in the 50 amp plug you are connected to is not working. If you have a residential fridge and working TVs your inverter is working and your batteries are good.

Sounds like your inverter/convertor is off for some reason. Maybe the breaker on it has tripped . . . battery power should still be there though.
