No Power even though battery has a charge

I have a Coachmen Clipper 16CFB Travel Trailer. I just finished de-winterizing the camper and have had it plugged into my house yesterday and overnight. everything works fine with it plugged in, I unplug it and don't have any power in the interior of the camper. the battery seems to have a charge as I have an electric jack/front stand which is connected to the battery and that works just fine. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Follow the battery negetive wire to its ground point and check for loose or rusty connection.

Follow the positive wire that powers the trailer. There will be a fuse or breaker , most times hidden just under the frame near the hitch.

Then it must be a fuse somewhere. As mentioned, there could be one along the frame. I have seen the blade fuse type and the resettable fuse block type
If you find something like this, push the little black button on the end.
Good Luck! Click image for larger version

manual breaker

I did find that in a junction box, but couldn't find a switch. I ran my finger all around the block as best I could, so many wires in that small junction box.

That being said I may have pressed it and just didn't see it. as after I reconnected the battery now everything is working....

Thank you for the help!

Those CB that Reprobate posted a picture of are hard to tell sometimes if they are tripped. In that picture above, the reset button is that little black circle on the end. When they are tripped, it only pops out about 1/16"-1/8". You probably reset it by running you finger around it.

First thought would be the inverter wasn’t turned on.

16 ft travel trailer probable doesn't have an inverter.

If your referring to the converter/charger, that was working because he has 12 volts while on shore power.

There are many that are self-resetting and don't have a button/switch. You can bypass the breaker to see if the breaker is the problem and replace. You can find them easily on Azon.
