Lost power to entertainment switcher

I have a 2005 Journey 39F and cannot get power to the component switcher that let's you go from Cable to Satellite to Antenna, etc. It was working fine and then just stopped. Have checked every fuse panel on the rig and can't find anything. My outdoor stereo has also lost power.

HELP!

Okay, that's a rig with lots of options and nooks and crannies to sort through so maybe some more info can cut the chase. I'm pretty well going to be hiding out for the time being and have the time so lets see what we can find.
I assume this is a 110 problem. not 12VDC? Have you done any checking to kn0ow if any other 110 items have also lost power? Notice any outlets dead or such?
I will do a bit of looking to see what might show up as a likely trouble spot.

- Have you reset the main 120 volt breaker on your panel? Whether you use 30 or 50 amp there will be only one breaker.
- With the shore power off - and the inverter on - do you have power to any 120 volt appliances?

Start with these things and let's see what results ...
Thanks for the response.
The switcher is 12v and I think the stereo is also 12v. I have gone through everything (4 days worth) and there is not a single thing that is not working other than these two items. I've reset everything that I can reset. Tried these things on shore power, acc ignition and generator...............nothing. I tried to figure out how to attach a picture, but no joy.

From this drawing, sheet three, it looks like this is your inside and outside entertainment section. Does that seem to match for the right front side of your rig?

If correct, it looks like there should be two outlets dead as well as outside, with all being fed from the bedroom.
this be any help? Is the bedroom TV receptacle also dead or good there?

Looks like confusion here as that post looked like it was for a different person with a different question, rather than yours.
For posting a picture we can start to clear that perhaps? Scrolling down to "manage attachments", will help for that. The picture has to be on the computer for this method.
I might double check the 110AC versus 12VDC. I would not expect a 12VDC, so might question if it is actually Dc or if it is possibly 110VAC worked through the batteries using an inverter to do the change?

Yes, Tourman posted a response on someone else's thread and I moved that post here. I left the quote because he had responded to it.

Here's a link to the instructions for adding a photo attachment to your post:

You can often look at the label on things to see what power they use or looking at the plug also works. I believe that will be just plugged into a standard oulet and be 110 AC. The drawing shows that AC come from the bedroom outlet to a connection above the fresh water tank and then a connection in a front cabinet and finally to two outlets for the component items.
I was suggesting taking something like a lamp, hair dryer, or some small item to the bedroom and testing that outlet to see if it gets to that point. If the bedroom outlet is dead, then we need to look back along the line toward where the RV is plugged in. There may be something as simple as a GFCI tripped or a fuse or breaker.
But knowing if the bedroom works is an easy way to decide which direction to go to look for the trouble.

Looking further, I see room for confusion as that line of outlets is fed from an inverter which uses batteries to change 12VDC to 110 VAC, so easy to think they are 12v components.
Next step is to assume the bedroom TV is also dead and then go look at the inverter as they tend to be funky and trip out at times.
There are several other outlets between the inverter and breakers but that would be my next place to check for power.
Yellow is the bedroom and components outlets with red being the inverter and back toward the breakers to check next if the yellow circled are dead.
