Help, On trip NO power to Outlets / Microwave

So last night on my 2011 Sunseeker 2860 I had a small heater running off the outlet above the Sink, I was connected to line power @ my house, Not thinking I unplugged the line power from the house with the small heater running in the RV. This seems to blew a breaker so I thought, I figured when I got to my destination I would just reset it.

Well I'm here and it's not any of the breakers or fuses, and the GFI in the kitchen isn't tripped.. I get no power to the microwave, or any of the outlets.

When I fire up the generator I feel like it's not providing power and that I'm just running off DC power, The T.V. doesn't work either.. This is so weird, but I feel like it's something I'm missing..

Can anyone give me any insight?

While none of the breakers look blown. I would start with manually resetting your main breaker. Also check the breaker on the generator.

I'm new to this, so please bear with me, I turn off ALL the breakers and lights and everything in the RV still work. I cycled all the breakers and still NO GO. Cycle but flipping them all to off, turning on the main and then enabling each one...

Generator had one breaker I could see, a 30AMP i Cycled that as well.

Your lights are 12 v that's why they don't shut off.
They are running off your battery.

There's one in your bathroom as well.

All outlets are run by these gfci outlets.

There might even be a third in one of your outside compartments.

Do you have an inverter/converter???? Mine was off at one time and certain things wouldn't work...

Just a regular plug that says GFCI protected.. No breakers or such on the plug to reset it.
