There's normally a resettable fuse or circuit breaker on the + or red line close to the battery, often on the frame. Look for a popped button and push to reset. Even better to follow the circuit with a multimeter and trace the voltage back, battery to circuit panel. This should be the only interruption on the way. This assumes you have kept the battery disconnect switch closed. Do slides or jacks work. They have independent power connections at the battery.

Look at the metal box your umbilical plugs into. Mine is under the pin box.

Right next to it is another resettable current limiter (under the red cover).

Make sure it did not pop (short side of limiter) and the terminals are not loose or corroded.

(On a travel trailer it is under the frame).

This limiter can pop if you routinely use the truck to open the slides and such with a low battery.
