Start out simple - check the cord is delivering power, then take a look at breakers.

I checked the cord I have power going to the camper and the microwave works I am getting 110 to it. It's not charging the battery are giving it 12v power

To the op
This is not a disconnect issue.
There's either no power coming into camper or there's no power from the outside connection to the converter.

Are you plugged into a gfci in your house?
If so this may be your problem.
Have you also checked your circuit breakers in your house ?
Have you checked your circuit breakers in your camper?

Yes I checked the house breakers and I am not on a gfi circuit and I checked the ext. cord and tried other outlets and cords. I have also checked the breakers in the camper and fuses.
Thanks

Not on my 2013 Surveyor 220. I imagine it varies from model to model.
I haven't seen one on our 2013 Surveyor SP 296 either.

Nor on my Sabre. I know they're doing it now, I have a picture from my factory tour.

I wouldn't put too much time or labour into this repair, outside of visual insopection and breakers. I wouldn't start tinkering with the converter.

You mentioned that the trailer is new, I assume you have full warranty.

Let the dealer make the repair under warranty, if it happens again, at least you have a paper trial.

That's what I was trying not to do this week my dealer is a hour away and I am working all week and have reservations at the lake this weekend for 3 days it is my first trip not out to a good start. Is there a way to bypass it for the weekend?

Our charged RV marine battery never stayed charged very long even when only using it to run a light or two.

It's basically shore power or forget it.

Ok. When you can, let's check the connections to the battery, check the ground connection to the frame, and look for an inline fuse from the battery.
