Do you have a battery disconnect switch? Is it "on"? Slide and landing gear are often wired direct and will work with switch off, but everything else would be without power.

Look for a resettable circuit breaker on the power feed from the battery.

No 12volt.

Thank,s Dave and Bill,so far I have pulled out the circuit panel(converter) I found the black feed wire came out of the wire connector(marret).Thought for sure my problem is solved,soldered it together this time with new connector and still not solved,been following the feed wire forward to the source and the black and white feed wires go up the wall.Seems like behind the idiot panel to the right of the door opening,the only peek hole I can find is behind the tank andbattery meter,sort of stuck for an answer where to find a reset switch or breaker!

The resettable circuit breaker should be very close to the battery...the reset is the small black button on the side as shown in the picture.

Hi Dave,the junction block,circuit breaker was not tripped,in the process of following the wires,behind a panel in the chest of drawers is a 30 amp bosch relay,no power going to it, the black feed wire from that junction box(circuit breaker)goes up the wall behind switches and display,don,t know where it goes from there,been trying to find a schematic without any luck there!

The black feed wire goes to the slide switch,now trying to find out where the green and yellow wires go to,routed under the trailer by the looks of it.

The green and yellow wires that you're now tracing, is either one off the resettable circuit breaker near the battery...that will be the feed to the power center/converter.

I went out and checked mine. One wire from the battery to one side of the resettable breaker...3 wires off the other side. Two of the three wires have in-line fuses...1 feeds the langing gear, the other feeds the main slide motor. The 3rd wire, a heavy gauge red wire feeds the power center/converter.

They seem fine,now I am trying to find the routing of that red wire that feeds the center converter....no power,maybe thats where I should have started!
