Problems with inverter

I was trying to test the built-in inverter on my 2000 Fleetwood Discovery. I can't get any power to any of the outlets in the coach. I disconnected the shore power, turned on the inverter switch and tried every outlet in the coach. Nothing. The inverter seems to be working when I looked at it in it's compartment, but I haven't yet tested it back there to see if it's putting out 120 V. Any suggestions on what I should try first...?

With a touchless AC voltage tester check for power into and again out of inverter. Make sure no circuit breakers on inverter are tripped. If not power out when on shore power you have an inverter issue. If power is coming out check GFI outlets.
