I want to say this nicely, but I think you're jumping to some pretty quick conclusions. Pay attention to the previous post regarding a resettable circuit breaker. Most rigs have one, and if it is tripped it probably isolates your 12 volt system from the rest of the rig, INCLUDING the battery charger. The chances are that your rig IS equipped with a battery charge capability, built into the Power Converter.
During my first foray with my 2006 Wildwood LE I had the experience of having a known good battery, and the slide would go in and out, but all my other 12-volt systems (lights, fans, pump, etc) would not work unless I was plugged into shore power. It took a lot of research and reading before I learned about the resettable breaker. I went looking for it, located it easily, and found it was tripped. That was EXACTLY what the problem was, and ever since I reset it, things have been working perfectly.
