No power to chassis

I have an '01 Georgie Boy Cruise Master. Was doing some work on it recently, had a trickle charger hooked up to the auxiliary batteries. Forgot about that, hooked it to shore power to get power to an outlet. Not sure if that caused my issue, but I ended up with no power to the dash. 12 volt system seems fine. All batteries test ok. Couple of random things that occurred while poking around (am not good with electrical issues - no strategy to my investigation). Thought I would fire up generator to see if that helped - at first, just got that same clicking sound you get when you try to start anything that doesn't have enough juice. While using 12 volt tester (lights up when power present), had very faint light when testing 60 amp fuse 14 of power distribution box. Then I disconnected an auxiliary battery cable and reconnected. Got a spark, then my levelers started to retract (must have bumped manual retract button while inside). Turned off levelers, tried generator again and it started. But no power to dash still. Checked power distribution box, don't seem to have any power there on #14 now. Not sure what to think, looking for suggestions before arranging for someone to come out.

dgrover, do you have a battery disconnect switch that may have been bumped?

Remove all battery cables clean, reattach and come back and tell us everything is working again

All is good

Must have bumped something even though I thought I was careful. Went back and tightened everything up and it fired up. Sort of feel silly that I didn't do that first - but much relieved that I don't need a tow or get a repair bill!
