Welcome to the forum ,your fuse box is usually a brown box with two tab you have to turn to open most likely it will be close to the floor maybe somewhere like under the fridge or next to the heater, usually they are not hidden

Also, the outlets are usually "daisy chained" together with one
of them being a ground fault outlet.
That outlet controls the others.
It should have a little test/reset button on it.
Push the test button and it should click.
Push the reset button and it should stay in and turn on!
(Like Chevy2 said- you have to turn on the circuit breaker
in the power panel if it's not already on.)

Hopefully your camper is plugged in to an outlet. Lights will work off of your battery, but not anything that takes 110 volts.

In that panel there will be breakers and fuses. The breakers are for 120v ac stuff (receptacles, A/C, Fridge, etc) and the fuses are for the 12v dc stuff (lights, fridge control, furnace, etc).

you might want to check where you have it plugged into the house also. That circuit might be tripped or a GFI outlet that is tripped. Try the A/C fan and see if that will work, it only works when the camper is plugged in also.
