I'm having electrical issues with my Rockwood

Hello everyone new member here. I'm having electrical problems with my 2007 Rockwood Premier Tent Trailer. My ceiling dome lights , exhaust fan, and outlets will not work. My Refrigerator, water pump, and Radio work though. I've checked the fuse panel (One 20, two 10, one 15, and one 30 amp fuse) and none are blown. I've also checked the safety switch (red button under the sink) and it seems to be working fine with both wires underneath secure and doesn't stick. The 15 & 20 switches on the fuse panel aren't tripped either. I've also physically checked the wiring and nothing is loose or unplugged. On my last trip I had a cell phone and a Nintendo DS plugged into the outlets and started my 2000 Honda Inverter Generator plugging it in. At that moment the lights, fan, and outlets stopped working. Can someone please help?

try replacing the outlet first.
still doesn't explain why your 12v stuff(lights/fan)aren't working.
is the battery hooked up? was it replaced recently?

I'm having electrical issues with my Rockwood

In the back of the fuse box there are connections for the hot wires to the fuses and a terminal block for the ground wires. It's possible the ground for that circuit is very loose or came out. I would check that first and while you're at it make sure all the connections are tight. Make sure the power is off.

All of the 12v stuff can work with no battery in the unit because of the converter if you are plugged into shore power. (note: any slides will not be able to move in or out or be very very difficult to move with out a battery). I believe that you do have a 110v grounding problem. Be very careful tracing this down and shut the power off before adjusting or tightening or removing any 110v wires.
