Lost Shoreline Power

We normally store our 2016 VTDP 3709 all electric coach in a steel building - plugged into 30 amp power. I stopped in today to do some errands unrelated to the RV but checked things out. I noticed that the building's 30 amp circuit had tripped and there was no power going to the coach shoreline. When I went inside it was obvious that I had no power; the coach batteries were dead and the gauges above the passenger seat were inoperative. The gauge that normally displays levels (including battery levels) is dark. I reset the building circuit and I'm hoping that things will recharge and resume normal operations. I'm not near the manuals to do technical research.
  1. Will things reboot and return to normal?
  2. Will I have to re-set a lot of settings?
  3. How much trouble am I in?

Think about it, it's no different than when you have to change out batteries. Everything goes dead until the "hot" batteries are installed. The normal things will have to be reset like the clock on the microwave and any other timed electrical items. Once the batteries are charged everything should be working as it previously was.

All the batteries will charge eventually but may faster if you put a stand along 12v battery charger across batteries.
If you will not be using for a while they will charge so you can get engine started and your alternator will take over while your driving.
Always have your BCO on while using coach or plugged in at home and the B.I.M.or BIRD Systems will keep your batteries fully charged.
BCO will not operate until you get plugged in to at least 119.
