Bedroom TV has no power

2013 3010 DS
The 19" Jensen TV in the bedroom is unresponsive. It was working in my pre trip check and typically has a blue light on when the TV is powered but not on. Now there is no light and the TV won't respond to any remote or panel selections. I have checked the connections and everything is plugged in, the small inverter connection on the cord has a red light on so it is getting power. Anyone out there that can suggest what else I can try?

Plug in a lamp in the outlet to see if you have power there. You may have a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) plug that has tripped. Check all the GFI outlets, bathroom, kitchen, outside outlets and some not so obvious (under the table). There should be a little button between the plug outlets that should be flush with the surrounding surface, if it is raised up it is tripped. Just push it in and it will reset. The way they wire RV's it could be any where. Any outlet downstream from the GRI outlet will be affected.

Thanks, will check that all out but I'm thinking that if the inverter plugged into the outlet has the light lit up, there must be power. But who knows, I'm going to look anyway.

Or, a very remote possibility the TV is kaput. Plug an extension cord in to the TV from another outlet that you know works and see if it comes on. If the TV is fused, that may be bad. Not familiar with your RV so I'm doing a lot guessing

Your TV, if it was a factory option, is 12 V DC powered so some of the comments posted are related to 110 VAC and do not apply.
If you have a volt meter you can pull the plug at the TV and check for proper voltage or if you have a power cord from another TV or appliance try it but I would not expect a problem there if the red light is lit. Check your TV manual to see if it has an internal power fuse. TV failures are not common but they are electronic devices that do fail especially in high vibration applications like RVs on the road.

Some have had problems with the 12 volt plug on the Jensens (where it plugs into the socket). Check that - might even check for a fuse inside the plug or just swap it out from another Jensen in the coach. Oh, and make certain the TV end is plugged in. It's just a barrel plug and can wiggle out.
