No power to shamrock

Hey guys, need help. I recently winterized my camper. I've been charging battery by leaving it plugged into home. I found my ext cords were borrowed for Christmas decor and battery is dead?? No lights will come on on camper. I've charged battery today by plugging back into home. Nothing works. Any ideas?

Many times owners trip a resettable circuit breaker, when taking the battery out or putting it in.
Google it and look at Images. It's usually the gray one with the tiny black reset button. It is located along the A-frame, tucked away.

Check your circuit breakers-if they're good then put it on a slow charge and give it time-24 hrs?It may well come back.

Thank you, I'll check it, but I didn't take the battery out if battery box or unhook it. Do you have any other ideas?

When you say nothing works, do you mean the 12v DC stuff or the 110v AC stuff?

Check your fuse at the convertor it's either 40 or 30 automotive style. Do you know if the polarity is correct? just a guess, did it work before or is this the first time? A xmas tree extension will not carry enough capacity for voltage to begin with. not sure if you mean the light weight ones or a 12 ga. extension cord? 12 ga would be okay capacity wise.

12volt stuff. It's strange because if plugged into outlet, shouldn't this bypass battery?

How did you test the battery to determine that it is fully charged?
don't depend on the idiot lights inside the trailer, on the monitor panel. Because if hooked up to shore power, the monitor will show the battery fully charged, even if it's nearly dead.
