Are you plugged into power or trying by use your battery?
Do you have any power? Are there any LEDs lit anywhere (smoke detector, co2 detector, etc) or is everything dead?
Check breakers for all 110v appliances.
Check fuses for 12v items.
Check battery disconnect.
Check breaker at power pole or in your home if plugged in.

You'll need a good battery to use your 1000w inverters and it will not last long if using larger draw items like a/c or water heater.

Well as stated you need to see of your batteries have any charge. If they do then look for a master switch, usually near the entry door. This switch disconnects the batteries from the coach so they do not run down to bad during storage periods.

There should be a monitoring panel somewhere where you can check the battery strength.

IF the unit is plugged in to AC power and the afore mentioned switch is on you should have something and the ac should be charging the house batteries.

i do not know anything about your particular motor home so I am not sure where any of this is.

Time to start exploring to find things.

When you click to reply to a post there will be a paperclip along the top of the menu bar. Click it and a popup window will appear. Drag and drop the pictures to where it says browse. When you get up to four there click upload and wait till it says it is finished. You should then be able to click send and it will show in your next post.

I will be traveling tomorrow but will be available in the evenings to look at what you send. Others will also be happy to help you.

We got the power figured out. The plug in is now working. Thanks guys . However it's not turning anything on in the motor home. The fridge is set for electric or Propane but we can't find a switch for it . And the hot water pilot light won't light.

Hope you get it figured out. If you know someone who has something similar, or any rv, they can show you lots of basics and explain the many systems on yours. David
