On most RV's the house batteries are different than the battery used to start the engine and run the dash. Sounds like your engine battery/ies are drained or dead.  Where are you parked?

At home and she is plugged in. Went to start her up today and nothing. Is it possible that phone chargers left plugged in could run down a battery? Not sure what would be pulling juice from the engine batteries?

Lots of things could be pulling juice from your engine battery. 

I always try the easiest fixes first. 

1.  Check your fuse box and make sure all fuses are good. 

2.  Dead battery-put a 12v battery charger on the engines battery.  Or try and jump start it with another vehicle.  (If you try and jump a dead battery, your dash lights should come on once the jumper cables are hooked up to a running vehicle  

2a.  If your battery is dead and your able to get it started.  Take it to any auto parts store. And ask them to check the battery and alternator. Most of them will do this for free. 

 

3.  Check to make sure you have a good ground.  A 12v system won’t do anything with a good ground.  Start at the battery’s negative side and make sure it’s contracted correctly and right. Then check down by the starter. There is usually a ground wire on it or by it. Make sure ALL grounding wires are in good shape and firmly connected. 

 

let us know if that helped. If not we can go deeper.
