where to start looking?

Have a Garmin 4208 that was working fine last week, today connected it up and no power. Checked the fuses and are ok. Batteries are ok but no power coming from the power cord. Where should I start to backtack to find the problem?

Two choices, start at the switch panel and work toward the plug or visa versa. Is anything else on that circuit? If yes, does it work? If yes, then it is probably where the power cord joins the rest of the circuit. Sorry if this is vague, you didn't give us much to work with
