I checked for voltage (12v) on both sides of the big fuse right under the front of the trailer and have voltage on both sides. I assume that means it's good. I am going to disconnect the power to the inverter and see if the inverter is causing a load situation. What else can I try?
You can't check fuses this way. You will have back feed on wires. Either check across the fuse with both leads or pull the fuse out and check continuity.If you check across a fuse while it is hot, there should be no voltage reading if the fuse is good (just like checking 2 spots on the same wire)

Reset the breaker by turning it fully off then turn it fully on.

There should be a small push button on the breaker. Push it. if it clicks it was tripped. For your set up. I would operate under the assumption that the 12V aux from the TV will keep charged batteries charged if a few small things are on. It will not recharge a dead or very weak battery especially if inverter is running fridge. If you use the generator to recharge the batteries, hook the TT to the 120V out of the generator and allow the converter to do the charging. While charging, check the battery voltage it should be 13.8V or higher when convertor is running. The 12V battery chargers on most generators are marginal at best.

I hooked up my generator. I got a little over 13v on one side of the terminal mounted on the frame. The other side I have 1v. I can't figure out how to send a picture of where I am talking.

Ok. I found a breaker under the TH that was blown. It is a 24vDC Y08 30A. I went to the local RV dealer (not the one I bought the TH from) and he gave me a 12vDCY42 30A. Anyone know if these are compatible?
