It could be your battery "cut off" switch. This turns off all the little lights, sensors etc. when you don't want any drain on the battery, when in storage for example. I have a different TT but that is what my switch looks like.

(chuckle) There's a lot of discussion about which way is which on a battery disconnect, so DH and I tested ours and made a label for it;

Out is On

Battery switch, but looks like it was installed for something else. Probably just have to trace wires...

Are you running off of battery when everything still works? Or are you plugged into shore power? If your camper is still plugged in, your converter usually works without a battery and it could look like this battery disconnect doesn't do anything.
