No power from good batteries

Everything works when plugged in to outside power or when hooked up for towing, but nothing when I try to use trailer batteries only. I have new batteries and the switch is on for battery use. Any suggestions about what the problem may be and how to solve it? Thanks. Dan Escape 17.

How new are the batteries, new enough to be hooked up wrong?

Brand new. Double checks the hookup for the terminals. Thanks.

start with a volt meter. measure DC voltage at battery terminals, measure voltage where the batteries connect to the fuse panel.
