Angry No battery power

I just recently purchased a 2017 Jayco and for some reason when not hooked up to any power the battery seems to be dead. After using a battery tester which concluded the brand new battery is good and putting a new battery on anyway I have the same issue... It's going back to the dealership as soon as possible but we have a trip planned for this weekend. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Check the 30amp fuze behind batteries attached to frame next to black junction box

I have checked all fuses including the one by the junction box on the frame. As far as I know there is no battery shutoff switch. I have looked everywhere and came up with nothing. Now I am running into the issue of my fridge not cooling very much at all... Really hoping that the 2 issues are connected somehow and that my brand new camer isn't going to be in the shop over and over...

Did you check your reverse fuses either on the power converter (Progressive) or on the panel (W.O.F)

Leaving your battery connected without shore power will drain the battery.

All fuses have been checked. I only have one panel where there is a group of fuses as well as breakers. I also have the in line battery fuse. All have been changed and re checked.

Sounds like you have a W.O.F converter. Remove the battery + connection and go on shore power. Then check with a voltmeter if you have power at the battery connection (between ground and the wire coming from the circuit breaker or fuse). If there's power the converter is OK. If not look for the reverse fuse again.

I have removed and tested the battery and everything is good and it's charged and holding a charge. I had to get a new battery for my dump trailer and that didn't even remedy anything.
