lost power HELP

Help!! i bought a used but like new 2018 Bullet 248. the owner had it hooked up to satellite(i dont have that). Behind the tv, in the cabinet, he had unhooked most of the tv cable wires and bypassed everything but his input cable for his sat. I have begun trying to sort them all out. the radio has always worked and played fm music. the ant booster light would come on but I am 60 miles from the nearest tv station and could not receive any channels. the little display panel that shows battery level and tank level has always worked(even tonight as I went in the trailer to sort on the cables. I metered the tv coax cables from all the points and labeled them in the cabinet. I went to turn on the booster and it wouldn't power on. I tried to turn on the furrion to play music and it wouldnt power on. I check battery status and none of the lights for the battery level or tank level would come on. I assume I ahve lost some DC power somewhere. I have no tv booster light, no furrion radio and no led battery or tank level lights. All of these things are in the same cabinet above the kitchen table. A fuse?? What have I done??

Do you have shore power? If not, chances are that the trailer battery was discharged by the "phantom loads" and you're facing a dead battery. It only takes 3 or 4 days for a typical single battery system to discharge below the "minimum level" of around 10.5 volts, rendering everything in the trailer inoperable.

Now, if you're connected to shore power, there may be other issues, but if you're in a storage lot without power, your battery is dead.

I do have shore power hooked up , but dont leave it turned on all the time. We turn it on when we go in to do stuff(wife is decorating and filling it with our things). Wit the shore power off, all of the things seem to work-lights, awning etc. I have pulled all the fuses in the box to check them and all are good. Everything seems to work except these dc items in the cabinet above the table.

Is the battery disconnect "on" or set to "use"? If not you'll have no 12 volt & the battery won't charge when connected to shore power.

As far as I know, the trailer does not have a disconnect. all of the items that don't work now, have been working in the last 3 weeks. I am going to assume that while messing with the tv coax cables that are also running in the ceiling of that cabinet, I have pulled something loose.
