Can't locate blown circuit - Dutchmen Motorhome

While swapping out a 12v television in a 31F Dutchmen Motor Home (2007) I accidentally switched the polarity on the power hookup. The wires got very hot. The fuse on the TV blew and the inverter indicated a fault and had to be reset. This occurred while running off shore power. I can't restore the 12V power to the television and the motor that operates the swing out for the tv mount. I checked every fuse I can find on the converter, inverter, and the fuse panel for the vehicle in the passenger compartment and under the hood. As far as I can tell, everything else works fine. Is there a chance anyone here would know the source of the 12V for the TV and motor in the main coach area? Where else can I check for the open circuit? It's tough to trace the wiring because it's all tucked in the thin walls and plastic conduit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
