Interior Lights & AC in-op

Please HELP!

I have mischief making twins and they decided to create a 'pool' in the master bedroom near the sink of a McKenzie Montana first year they made it. (not mine so sorry I don't know more than make & model). The water was to the extent that it was dripping out of the side where the sink is. At the same time they had every interior light on as well as the heat/ A/C unit.

Now none of the interior lights work, "porch" light doesn't work, the AC no longer works, and the antenna socket (think that's what it's called so T.V. will work) no longer works. However, every outlet works.

We've tried resetting all the breakers which only corrected the outlets.

My mother-in-law and I would really rather NOT get her husband involved if possible.

Any ideas? Could the water be related to lights not working?

All help woul be GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you.

The lights and antenna power supply are all on the 12 volt side of the system. Look for blown fuses in the fuse box. Make sure the battery has not had the battery isolator switch pulled to the off position. Do any of the lights work hooked up to shore power? The converter might also have gotten wet and that would kill the 12 volt system if the battery is dead or isolated.

There should be a GFI in the system somewhere that the water would have activated. Look for it and see if it is tripped.
