Tropical Charging system

My 2005 Tropical has been in storage for 2 months, with electrical all shut off. I just tried to start it and it would hardly turn over. I started the generator and it started charging the batteries but I got over eager and tried to start the engine again. It turned over a couple times then just went rrrowwell and the generator quit. I've plugged in my shore power to 120 v and my inverter is slowly charging the chassis batteries, but now i have no 12 volt access at all, other than the little light by the entrance steps.My battery disconnect does nothing, I press the House Battery switch on the Control Panel and it shows nothing. I can't find a 12v Main breaker. Is there one and where is it?

Not sure since it has been some time since we sold our 04 Tropi Cal but, There was an outside compartment on the passenger side near the rear that had a fairly large removable screened plate in it. Behind that plate were two or three resettable breakers that look similar to this Sears.com
To the left of the red button there is a leaver to reset it. Just a thought in case you have not looked there.

l'm thinking that God is very partial to Current and Former National TropiCal owners. We're in Hot Springs, AR, and the only RV service businesses are closed until Monday. We were looking at a minimum of 4 night's in a Hotel, and worse, missing the New Year's Eve Party at our RV Resort in Apache Junctio, AZ.
God Bless you and thanks for your reply. The reset lever worked!
