Need help with new-to-me RV

My wife and I recently purchased a 2006 Coachmen Cross Country se 384ts diesel pusher (Freightliner chassis, 5.9 cummins 300 hp ), and in spite of paying for a survey of the coach prior to buying it, there are some things that do not work that I didn't find out until our first camping trip.

The first I would like suggestions on is that none of the TVs will power up. I have checked the circuit breakers and they are not tripped, but there is no power to the 110 plugs they are plugged into.

Secondly there are switches on the dash I cannot figure out their purpose and I cannot find any diagrams telling me what they are for.

The 12v accessory plug on the dash has no power as well.

Any suggestions of how to troubleshoot? I am a complete newb to this.

Is the person who did your inspection located near you? If so I'd have them come by and explain why there is no 110 power to your tvs. Probably just one of the 100v circuit breakers are tripped.

A few questions. Do you have any 110 power at all. Do you have it when you're docked? Do you have it when your on generator? Can you plug a lamp in the same outlets as the tvs and get anything ?

You might start by looking for any tripped GFCI outlets in the coach. They may be in the bathroom or near a sink, possibly in the galley.

Check your 12v fuses till you find the one that controls the 12v Auxiliary outlet as some MH's had a 12V relay that shut the front TV off while travelling. This 12V fused relay also controlled other 12V circuits. If the ignition key is on the TV plug was dead.
Also GFI's control a lot of the plugs in your RV so make sure they are not tripped. They can even be found in luggage compartments as the manufacture wanted to see how resourceful we are at finding them.

Tried calling them, they are not returning my calls. I checked the breaker box and none appear to be tripped but I should probably flip them off and on to see.

I have 110 everywhere else as far as I can tell. Shore power or generator makes no difference, it is like the circuit is dead but none of the breakers are tripped. If it is on a GFIC that is tripped it may take a little sleuthing!
