1. - Is there power at the pedestal (or wall plug)?
2. - Breakers?
3. - Inverter changes battery power to 120volts.
4. - Is converter (battery charger) running?
5. - Does Microwave or any of the outlets operate?
6. - is the red button on the GFCI (usually in the bathroom) sticking out?

You need to verify power is actually getting to the trailer. The pedestal, your power cord, your internal breaker, etc. Voltmeter is a necessity.

Does anything 120 vac work inside the trailer?

Do you have generator prep with a transfer switch? Those transfer switches are a known problem.

Or, just maybe, your battery disconnect switch was inadvertently turned off? That would be for the 12V side.

There was power from pedestal and microwave had power. The new battery did not seem to charge and I had to have a battery charger on it all week. Cannot tell if inverter was running because I can’t locate. I checked all possible breakers and fuses that I can find.

Converter are qite often located adjacent, in back of, 12o volt power distribution panel.
Does any of the 120 volt items work? receptacles?

All receptacles work…I’m thinking an in-line fuse that charges battery from pedestal? We were hooked up to 50 amp but after a few days we had no lights because battery was dead. I know the lights are 12 volt…we had microwave at the time but no fridge

Let's get our terms down.

The converter charges your battery and converts 120 volts to 12v.
A inverter takes 12v and boost it to 120 volts.
