We have no reset buttons, i was on here a couple weeks ago and that was suggested then. I'm going to check out a few thing then go to the near dealer ship from what i have heard this is what we are going to look for when we get back there Wednesday. If anyone can add to this list i will check that to

1, jumper wire - crimped cracked anything looking odd in any wiring
2, in-line fuse or extra circuit breakers other than the 2 clearly seen
3. disconnection switch - maybe no where near the battery area

the one thing i have noticed the most is that we can't find electrical plans for wiring anywhere on line. I know that would be the biggest help here, but if i enter my style trailer i can't find it either.... YUP WEIRD

so again if you have anything extra for us to look into please forward your thoughts.

if i wanted to double check the smaller fuses in the breaker panel with the test light would i go from top to bottom and right side to left? or the other way?

I wonder if you have 2 blown battery polarity fuses in the converter? Check and see if two red leds are lite? You can ground the test light and check fuses on both sides. there is little slot in the top of the fuse.

not WEIRD, because they don't exist.

Others have the right idea, check each connection in line, one by one, especially crimped connections for corrosion. Check any wiring connected to trailer body for corrosion as well.

Where have you seen 2012 wiring diagrams of any RV?

Start with the red line where your finger is pointing in the second picture. If that is where you say there is still power, follow it as it looks like it would be the one moving to your 12 volt power panel. There is very likely a cut off switch along the way. Some are mounted on the front frame cross member and use either a chrome knob about 3/4 inch diameter, or round 3/4 inch plastic hole that takes a red key and a quarter turn to turn on the power. Mine is the chrome knob type which reminds me of an after market panel switch in an old old pickup truck. Anyway it pulls out to turn on and pushed or snaps in to shut off. Looks like the smaller red line in front may be running back to your break control box and that usually stays hot and is not turned off by the power / battery on off switch. So track it with the test lite and like someone said eventually you will reach a point where it is no longer hot and that is where you look for the problem. My batt on off switch is in the box where my shore power lead comes out of the trailer. I have seen them in the wall next to the entry door and in or next to the fuse box in some interesting places like the cabinet under the fridge or behind a couch Usually near the 120 volt main shore power breaker box. Wish I could come over and help. Good Luck

That looks like the Trailer brake and light control

That box is usually the automotive light controls / hook ups. The 1st breaker should be the main in line fuse then it peels back to the connector box to power the emergency breakaway switch to activate the electric brakes in case you come off the hitch. The red wire continuing rearward is the main battery supply to the house

I would try to find the battery disconnect switch. As you have power coming from your gen and I assume same when you plugged into shore power. All trailers if you have a battery disconnect bypass the batteries with out charging them or connecting it to the inverter. This is just my opinion but welcome to check all the other options also.
Good luck.
