In the 2003 it is in the bedroom wardrobe on the floor.

Are you sure this is the problem?

Are you plugged in? What happens when the generator is on?

How are you batteries?

Is it AC/DC or both?

On my mid-door Alpine it's located in the basement compartment on the passenger side just aft of the entry door.

If you lost all 110 volt power I would suspect either the inside or outside main breaker. I would doubt that every 110 appliance is fed thru the inverter but I could well be mistaken.

CORRECTION - it's the compartment in front of the rear wheel on the passenger side - second one back from the entry door. This places it close to the battery banks.

Older coaches, like mine, have two AC panels. One powers a circuit totally separate from the inverter. If that one is dead, your focus should not be on the inverter, but up stream of the AC panel. As someone has suggested, checking the transfer switch would be a good next step.

One other thought. If you have enough battery power, see if your inverter is supplying AC to any circuits. If so, you can rule out an inverter issue and reinforce the idea that the problem is upstream of the other AC panel. Hope that makes sense. PM me if you would like and I will try to provide a better explanation
