'21 Casita LD Porch Light

The porch light won't turn on. When the cover is removed it looks like a complex electrical set up. No LED bulb like the interior lights.
Any advice would be appreciated.

They are led's. Time to replace the lamp assembly. Look on line, Amazon and other have plenty to choose from. May not be an exact match but, you should find something close.

I would check to see if there is 12 volt electricity going to the light unit to determine if it is the light or something else at fault.

Those are 'surface mount' LEDs. The advantage is that an eventual failure of one does not affect the others and the light output is only slightly diminished (7% drop if one of your 14 diodes quits).
As none of those 14 are working, and they all stopped at once, I'm leaning towards a simple electrical, rather than 'electronic', cause.
Use a traditional volt meter set for 12 (or slightly greater) volts DC to test for voltage difference at the black and white wires at that connector inside the light assembly. If you see 12 volts there when the light switch is turned to on (contact closed), then the assembly isn't working. Replace it with a single lamp fixture with a replaceable (LED) bulb.
If there is no voltage at all with the switch in the ON position, look to other, non-lamp assembly (Switch contact? Fuse?) causes.

Make sure it isnít the switch. Turn it on and off a bunch.
