It appears I have no shore power but microwave works

I have a 2010 Seville 36sb It seems I have no power when plugged in to shore power. Lights and refrigerator have no power, slides don't work. Microwave and electrical plugs work though. Any ideas where to start looking for problem?
Checked fuses on breaker panel and power is coming into breaker panel.
Have not checked transformer. Haven't found it yet but have gotten a reply to look in basement behind curved wall.

you have shore power, cause all your AC circut stuff is working. Its your DC side Battery/ converter that is having issues

I have some fuses by the battery. Maybe one of them tripped? i agree, it sounds like you lost all the 12v power.

Since most lights use 12v DC along with the frig., it does seem like you have a 12v DC problem. The converter may have failed, tripped it's input breaker (which is 120v AC) or blown a 12v DC output fuse. And then the battery would discharge, so as suggested, check the battery. If it is dead, put a separate battery charger on it as a temp. fix. Then locate the converter and check it's output. Finally check for 120v AC power to the converter.

Also, you probably have 50 amp shore power which means there are two 120v legs coming into the RV. It is possible that one leg is open, either at the camp pedestal, at either end of your shore power cord, or at the connection on the RV. Anyway, if one leg is open, some 120v AC items will not work since they are using that leg and other 120v AC items will be fine. So check all items that need 120v AC, like both air conditioners, every single outlet, etc.

These are great suggestions, we have determined there is power coming into the converter but it is not working so looking to replace converter.
Thanks to everyone
