In order for the inverter to make the AC voltage and inverter you need good DC battery voltage, if the battery voltage was to low the inverter would not be able to invert. I would check your battery voltage.

Next I would locate the inverter and see if it has a reset or on/off switch and try to reset it. Some inverters will have one or two breakers on them as well, hard for me to say where your inverter is located being this model is so new. Normally it is outside near the batteries.

Beyond that I would contact the dealer in the morning, I know this is frustrating having a new RV and not being able to have AC power.

I do not offer phone calls, the company Just Answer does for an added fee. I am unavailable to do calls at this time, another RV expert may take the call.

Sorry you feel that way. Check the battery voltage, locate the inverter and look for a breaker on it.

Go around the RV and make sure you do not have a tripped GFI as well, these will be outlets with a test and reset on them, they are normally in the bathroom and or galley. Check your main breaker panel as well for a tripped breaker.

No breakers on the gfi outlets, and no fuses blown, or breakers tripped that I can see

Plz change phone # to 7*******1
