In the dark

We're literally and physically in the dark. My wife and I purchased this motorhome from a private owner and were thrown into the deepened of the pool. We're plugged into the campgrounds facilities, and sadly on my part I'm not certain where the inverteris for this unit.
Previous owner was no help at all, left as soon as I gave him the check. Said to call if there were questions, but will not answer their phone or return our calls. Sorry to vent, we've wanted to do this for years and now that we can haven't had much luck. Appreciate your quick responses not sure how to proceed, stumbling forward in reverse.

Usually other campers are very helpful. See if one of your neighbors can help.

Not uncommon, used units are sold with aged, defective batteries. These can over tax the battery charger portion of the converter to the point of fuse opening or converter failure.
I'd start with batter check/renewal, then proceed to check the converter. The batteries if defective could damage a new converter. Start with battery maintenance first.

Start at the beginning. Check power tower to insure plug is in fully and circuit breaker active.
Talk to neighbors, usually very friendly , and check with park people. In many cases they have faced similar situation and may be helpful with solution.
