Awning and steps wont work

My 2016 Georgetown 310's electric steps, awning and dvd player above the entry door are not working. I have checked all fuses, circuit breakers and the gfi outlet. The steps are in and the awning is as well. Any ideas out there?

The power for the steps and awning are fuses directly off the battery and I suppose you have checked them. Not sure for the DVD. Have you checked the fuses in the battery control center?

Not sure which fuse would corespond to those components. Difficult to tell without pulling every fuse. The ignition is off and the parking brake is engages. Everything worked fine until I turned off the power to the dvd player switch. Not sure if that had anything to do with the problem, probably a coincidence.

Yes they are directly fused off the house batteries.
See picture of mine.

No doubt there is some vairation in the wiring from one model
year to another. On my 378 the 2 fuses directly connected to
the batteries are 1 for LP Detector and the other for the step.

LP is a 5amp fuse. Steps is a 25amp and awning is a 15amp. One or more of these fuses could be connected to the side of the battery control center. That is still directly off the battery. You must not have a powered awning if you do not have the 15amp fuse. Steps, awning and I think maybe O2 (5amp fuse) detector still have power available even if battery switch is set storage. I believe there also is a 5amp fuse for the step switch input but it may be in the battery control center, maybe. I don't have all the documentation to back this up and not sure how accurate it is. I'm done.

like I said, there no doubt some variations between model years. The schematics
I attached earlier reflects mine. There is a 25A fuse for my awning and a 5A fuse for the step with in the BCC and if you have the batteries disconnected the only way you can have power to these fuses is if you are connected to shore power. Check out he schematics.
