DIagonostic tree:

Do the lights etc in your trailer work when it is not plugged into shore power? Yes go to line 3. No goto line 2

Line 2: Your battery is disconected and dead, or missing from the trailer. The Jacks and SLides work directly of the battery. If the power supply breaker beween the trailer interior and battery pops the battery can't charge. Also many units take the slide and jack power direct from the battery on a seperate wire so if the battery is missing, no jacks.

Line 3 You need to follow the positive battery cable back to the distribution point. This is within about three feet by law and the distribution blocks are actually 12 volt breakers. Often the Jack power has a sepeate inline fuse. Anyway do basic 12 volt test light testing to detirmine fault.

Last: Check grounds for both systems.often that is the problem.
