OK, when you say "no power" do you have lights?

Is all power gone or do you have AC (like air conditioning, microwave) or DC (like lighting and radio).

Your 120VAC to 12VDC converter is not working:
Reasons:

1) Your CONV breaker may be tripped in the power panel.

2) Your converter may be bad and not providing charging power

3) Because your converter is not working your battery is dead due to not being charged.

Yes. ONE of your 15 amp AC breakers powers your converter. It may be tripped.
Turn it off; then back on to reset it. It may have CONV on the legend.

Your converter (makes DC for Bus) will be powered by 115 VAC circuit breaker. Its output is often protected by fuses at or close by the converter DC output. Still puzzeled by Microwave not working unless its broke also!
