Electrical Problem!

No power to anything on the dash and or to the starter on 2014 Itasca 35j with V-10. I think the problems started due to a broken valve problem for the front black tank, on the 14th, the inverter got got wet and shut down. Yesterday did an online search found out that there was a standard ground fault interrupt and a reset on the inverter case plug and I had tripper it when I unpluged the Pelonis heater I keep in the compartment for cold weather. Resetting the ground fault got all the inverter sockets back online and related appliances operating, TVs and satellite and equipment. Went to start the engine and nothing, other than the items on the dash that are inverter controlled. Won't start, no lights, no pack up camera. I have checked all the push button breakers in the cabin, under the dash and in the outside bay. Anyone got any DIY ideas and if not, any body know of a mobile mechanic in the Conroe Texas area who is worth calling. Also, I am not getting any power to the fuse block in the engine block.

Check your battery cables for the coach. You may have a corroded clamp.

The inverter doesn't power the dashboard or start the engine. You need to be looking at the chassis battery wiring, including the ground.

"lift off"

We have lift off, or to be less dramatic, we have power to the dash and engine. Thanks for the feedback. After Church and dinner with family from Houston and Cleveland, Texas this morning I came back and started again on checking for the problem. Another Rver from another forum questioned if I had checked the power disconnect for the engine battery. Duh and Duh again. Apparently while we were out shopping early yesterday, one of the dogs tripped the disconnect switch. I've been RVing since 1987 and know to check that first. Think panic management set in and overrode good common sense.
