Sense you are a newbee I wil go into more detail than normal.
Your trailer has a device called a converter. This is where your circuit breakers and fuses are located. Your shore power, where you plug your trailer in at CG, supplies power to this converter. The converter distributes the 110 VAC and 12 VDC thru the trailer. The converter also has a charger built into it to charge your batteries so you always keep your batteries connected.
Keep in mind this is a "CONVERTER" not an inverter. You will see this device mentioned quite often here also. It changes the 12VDC power from your batteries to 110VAC. Not all trailers have an inverter but all trailers have a converter. You could think of the converter as a control box for the power thru-out your trailer.
Welcome to the group and ask away! We all have to learn somewhere and sometime.
