Do you have a battery disconnect? On my 233S it is a big plastic key under the propane bottles. Sounds like your disconnect is turned off.

Is there a 30 or 40 amp fuse under the camper or by the tongue that feeds the inside of the camper?

You didn't happen to reinstall the battery, did you?
Either way, check the resettable breaker that's tucked inside the A-frame.
Has a tiny black button that you press to reset.

Well i just got the unit and have installed and reinstalled the battery. And i now have the battery out as to charge and make sure it's charged. I have looked and looked for the reset you talk about because everyone references it and i can't locate it.

You may have reversed the battery cables, thus tripping the breaker.
Common newbie mistake.

Google "resettable circuit breaker " for pics of one.

Your symptoms usually points to the resettable breaker being tripped.
Or you blew an inline fuse.
