Help help help

Help. Just came back to Florida to the motorhome and I have limited power inside. I left two weeks ago, turned the power off at the main but did not turn off the main batteries cut off. I have power at a few switches (plugged in sweeper and tv but no where else. Salesmen cut off switch is off. Any ideas

Please note questions in red as your post is a bit unclear.

If the salesman switch is OFF, you will have no house dc power. If your inverter is ON, you will have a few 110v outlets powered. If you are plugged in again, turn on the salesman switch to charge your batteries as it may be necessary in your coach, and set your inverter to charge.

Yes. I threw the shore breaker off but forgot to turn off both the house and chassis breaker switch. Plugged in, no power in unit but the microwave time flashes and sweeper charges. No other power. Checked batteries cut off switch in motorhome and it is off. No power in the batteries to start the generator. I have the shore power charging the batteries now because the batteries are dead

As mentioned in your other post, your inverter/charger will not charge dead batteries.

Find an outside source of 12 volts, to get some voltage into the batteries.

Starting the generator will not do it, like shore power, it runs the inverter/charger.
