Newbie to Newbie - Power

Ok I learned a lesson today, after struggling to find a bad fuse.
Just picked up the coach after having a hose replaced. Got her cleaned up and ready to roll to mountains for the holiday. Ready to drive out, plug in the GPS and cell phone to cigarette plugs, and no power. So, I go outside, pull cover off fuse box. NOTHING marked cigarette fuse. So I start pulling fuses one by one trying to find that bad fuse. All good! 1 1-2 hrs later I Thought I'd go in and see if by chance by wiggling, removing and replacing I may have power. NOTHING. Went to move my drivers seat back, no power. Now I'm getting anxious and frustrated. Wife is ready to roll!
So, sit down to think. Ahh, Battery cut out switch (by front entry door)..
Wife had hit it punching buttons trying to turn on a light. Urggggg.
So, I learned, if you don't have power to something, check the battery cut out switch first!
I learn, some of them hard, lessons every time we roll somewhere.
Hope this helps someone save some frustration.

We go to Pigeon Forge TN. Place called Anchor Down RV Resort. Been going to this place with the 5r (now the coach) since they opened 2 years ago. It has spoiled us. Can't find other places to go, anywhere, that are as nice as this one so we keep coming back.
I hope someone that reads this will check it out and tell me where there are compatible resorts like this.

Funny story but at least you got it figured out and nothing was broken. Everyone goes through the learning stage, I still do after 15 years or more.

Having had a similar experience, that's my first check if all 12v power is out.
