Often there is a re-settable circuit breaker. Different vehicles different locations. On my TT it's between shut-off switch and junction box. Just follow the "hot" wire from battery to panel and look for a small box like device with two threaded studs on it with the hot wire connected to one side and continuing to the other and continuing on into the vehicle. On the side there is a small "reset" button. Much smaller than it should be but it's there.

Oh yeah, look for the circuit breaker in the most unlikely and most difficult place to access. That seems to be the norm for it's location

If it's tripped you will have no battery power at converter terminals (with it shut off) or any 12v power to distribution panel (again if converter is shut off). With no shore power, if you have battery power at the distribution panel, the Circuit breaker is OK and you can save yourself the "scavenger hunt" for now anyway.

I found the voltage at the converter to be greater than the voltage at the battery terminals. Found the circuit breaker but it wasn’t tripped.

Turned out a loose connection on one of the battery post. Go figure.

I’d like to thank everyone for their comments and suggestions. What a great group.
