Help !!!!

I have a 2012 Sunset Trail. My hot water heater, radio, vent fan light and status lights on the panel don't work. I have checked all fuses that I can find and they're all ok. Are there fuses somewhere that I can't find or can the circuit breaker be bad ? Any help would be helpful.

Did you by any chance have the battery cables off for some reason?
If so, did you accidentally reconnect them backwards?

it sounds like you lost 12v power to all those items. I would start with checking the fuses (again) and for a possible loose connection at the converter. **CAUTION** if you pull the cover off the converter be mindful of 120v electrical wires.

Just a question - when was the last time these items worked? Did you work on something or possibly do something that might cause this issue?

there are 2 -30 or 40 A fuses side by side kinda hidden in the convertor. may be that ...like was asked before,did you hook up battery wires backwards? Black and white are not like house wiring.....

Yes I did but caught it and replaced the fuses it blew. Rechecked all the fuses today and still nothing.

Rechecked all the fuses today with a tester and all tested fine. Took the converter out and checked for fuses and everything looked ok. Last time I used it was almost 2 years. I did connect the battery backwards but caught it and replaced all the blown fuses. Everything else works.

I'll have to check again tomorrow. Trailer is stored at a storage facility. Will let you know later tomorrow. Thanks.

Radio will have it's own in-line fuse behind it. Does the vent fan work? Maybe the bulb is blown. Possible the status lights and water heater also have local fuses as well. Or you may have caused a bad connection at the switch panel that affects the status lights and heater, so you may need to check for a melted wire or connector on the backside of the panel.
