Lights and fan not working

2016 viking legend v12rbst. I'm new to this camper. Seems like the battery things aren't working. Battery looks good. Is there a switch that I need to turn on the battery? I'm connected to electric right now. TY

Did the previous owner install a battery cutoff switch. Look around the battery. Is the battery charged/installed?

The A-frames come with a top close switch it is located inside on the front driver side just behind the curtains next to the lift spring it is to shut down power to the top lights and fan when closed. It is lightweight and gets broken easily.

This is the A-frame site if that is not what you have you might post you message on another forum.

It is an A-Frame

I checked the battery and looked for a switch. No luck. Nothing in the owner's manual helps. Just thought someone may have a similar problem. I'll call the dealer tomorrow. I bought it new.

Love my new camper. The battery things not working is no biggie. I moved up from a tent. So, I have all kinds lights and fans to use.

I appreciate the time everyone took to read and post. TY

It looks like the Viking Legend v12rbst is an forest river A frame.
so I agree with abdiver look for the switch in the trailer behind the cloth flap that cover roof hinge to the front wall. If the radio or water pump do not works then is is not the problem.

Radio and pump work

The camper sales gave me the wrong owners manual. I called the service number. They are to answer 24/7. Well they don't. I left a message. I will look again at the wires under the fabric flap.

I still love my camper. So much better than a tent!!

It should probably be on the front drivers side under the curtain. A wire on mine came loose so my lights weren't working. Just had to plug it back in.
