shore line

I have a 2010 Zinger and when I plug the shore line only the microwave and the AC work. I have checked the breakers and fuses what am I missing?

The GFI is part of the 120v outlets. I have one in the bathroom and one in the kitchen area. It has a red reset button.

If you have one on the shore line where it plugs into then you would not have any 120v in the RV if it was tripped. Not sure what he was referring to near the battery, that would be 12v.
The GFI's could be faulty.

Since the microwave and AC work on 120VAC, and "nothing else" works, and everything else is actually 12VDC, it could be he has a battery/converter problem. OP, when you say "nothing else" works, are you talking about 120 VAC outlets, or lights, stereo, slides, etc?

Most of the wiring is done using the push in connections and they can corrode easily. Whenever I have a loss of power, I go to the 1st outlet and move the connections to the screw terminals on the side. The GFI should be the 1st outlet and it might supply power for as many as 7 other outlets.

The cheap GFI used in RVs can be miswired and still provide power downstream, defeating the purpose. The ones sold by HD or Lowes must be wired correctly to work. And as stated GFIs fail frequently.

I don't know anything about your unit, but there might be an in-line fuse at your battery box. My last trailer had a typical fuse panel with breakers and fuses, but there was also a small plastic box right off the battery (positive lead) with a small fuse in it. That fuse was a constant problem for me.

If all those things work with a battery, then you indeed have a 12 VDC problem. First of all, you shouldn't run the system with the converter plugged in, but no battery attached. The battery acts as a sort of surge-protector on the output side of the converter.
Is the converter a goner? Too soon to tell. There are several fuses and in-line connections to check. You have to pull the converter to check all of them, but you are then prepared for a replacement if need be.
As a reminder - shore power feeds the AC, the microwave, and the converter. Also the fridge if on AC power, and the water heater on electric. But even the fridge and water heater need 12VDC to operate the controls.
