We have owned this 2010 171 Rpod since 2013.
We are having an electrical issue.
We are plugged into shore power.
(an issue we had the day this seemed to start not real sure if related. But when disconnecting the trailer from the truck 1 the plug did not want to pull out,  2 when it finally did with a lot of difficulty it pulled part of a pin of the truck out with it)

Items not working:
refrigerator will not even turn on.
no AC/furnace
no bathroom fan.
water pump??
water heater?? 
gauges don't light up.

items that work
Any thoughts

Depending on the pin that was pulled out of the connector on the truck it may have created a short (when it was pulled apart) which has blown 12 volt fuse(s) in the breaker box.  The things that you indicated that do not work all require 12 volt power, even the fridge (for controlling).  With a blown 12 volt fuse(s) that could cause these failures.  The only exception to this is that the lighting in the camper works, which you indicate works but requires 12 volt power. You need to first repair the connection on the truck, then start checking the 12 volt system including the fuses in the trailer.  It will take rudimentary electric knowledge along with some basic tools such as an electrical multimeter.  Hope this helps.
