No power to outlets

Testing a TV connection, found I have no power at any of the outlets. I'm on battery power only, but nothing plugged in and everything powered off. Battery is showing full. Outlets worked fine over the weekend when running from shore power. Cannot reset the GFI outlet. Fuse box looks good - nothing tripped, no fuses blown. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Being on battery only you will not get 110 volt unless you have an inverter to convert 12v to 110v. No outlets that are 110 v will work without being plugged in to 110V. You need to be on shore power to have A/C voltage.

yep, the dealer should've explained that to you, during the PDI.
you can't run anything plugged into the outlets nor your a/c nor your microwave nor the electric side of the WH, if you don't have shore power or a generator.

See if these help you understand the different systems in the RV:

I used to be addicted to time travel, but that's all in the past now.
