2011 Coachmen Clipper 127ST Pop Up - Nothing Works Inside

I am not sure how to explain this, but on battery power nothing inside the cabin works, fridge (3-way), lights, fan, radio....all dead. I checked all the fuses inside the cabin, all good. I just got this so I have not had a chance to hook up the shore power....any input/advice would be much appreciated, thank you.

The battery is a brand new deep cell.

BTW, there is no ground cable to hook to the batter coming from the cabin, there is only a ground wire coming from the electric winch.

you probably should post a picture of the battery and how it is hooked up. I take it the lift motor works off the battery. When I had my popup, the lift was directly wired to the battery in addition to the cabin, so there were several wires.
