Thanks again for the support, this is proving to be a great resource.
There should be a little black button on the end/side of it, that you push in to reset. It shows up in the link I provided in post #4.

Edit: See the little black button on the end in the pic below? Push it in on your resettable fuse/cb

Popups don't have factory disconnect switches.
A previous owner would have to installed one.

The OP has to find the resettable breaker and press the black reset button.

If it is none of the above, I would look for corrosion on the battery cables, had something like what you had a couple of years ago on my travel trailer and it was just a matter of a little wire brushing.

My circuit breaker doesn't have a button to reset it, it seems to be one of the automatic reset models. Is anyone aware of how long does that takes to reset?

Some of them don't have the reset button. I've had to replace a few that wouldn't reset on their on. Most auto parts stores have them in stock.

More help

OK, so I checked the fuses, they are all good. I plugged into shore power, the lights, fan etc, still don't work! T

his is really starting to make me angry, the thing is less than one year old. Also, when I plugged into shore power, the fuses go hot to the touch, any suggestions. What are the odds that the power inverter is bad?

I think you mean to say converter, not inverter.

You need to read post #9 again about blowing the converters reverse polarity fuses when/if you connected the battery backwards (which I think you stated you did).

These have to be replaced before the converter (which powers all your 12 volt items when connected to shore power) can function. This fuse(s) may be in electrical distribution panel, or could possible be on the converter itself.

Were you able to specifically locate the reverse polarity fuse(s) in your distribution panel?

I found the fuse. I took it out and it appeared to be fine. It looks like it is a fine fuse. I will test it, but I think it is ok.

I just tested all the fuses. They are good.

When I connect to shore power, the AC outlets work, but nothing else seems to work. I am not an electrical expert to begin with and I am really getting frustrated. Any suggestions please?

The only thing that I have not tested is the circuit breaker. I found it, but there is no reset button. There seems to be an inline one right at the batter and then one on the trailer tongue as were posted earlier. Should I take the inline one at the battery out and see what happens.

If you have a meter, measure the voltage across the fuse and /or breaker . It should be zero ( or very close). If there is a voltage across the fuse / breaker, it is open .

...So if the voltage is 0, the breaker is closed? Which means it is good or bad?
