Hello, I am new to this!

We have purchased a 91 excella 2000. We have water running to the small faucet in the kitchen, bathroom sink, toilet, shower have running water great pressure. Do I need a seperate hose for the kitchen sink?
I can not figure out how to get Electric to run to the trailer,for the heat. The fridge and freezer are working great. The lights work great. The radio too. I am figuring that is off the battery. However I have no power to any plug ins?
The power cord is plugged into a box for electric but I am missing a step.
I found the circuit box and made sure they were not triped. I am really at a loss. I plan on ordering new manuals but I need a little help before they get here. My daughter and grandkids will be staying in it.

Thank you all so much in advance
looking forward to your responses

All appliances except for AC run off of the 12 volt system. Your plugs of course, all need 115 volts.
Not sure about your sink supply. My model doesn't require a hose, it runs off the 12 volt/on-board water system. I have the OPTION of running the water system with the hose, and leaving the 12 volt pump off.

Try to reset the breakers some may not appear to be tripped but are. Be sure you do have power on the connecting cord and not that you just think you do.

Do you mean that the faucet for the kitchen sink has no water? Look under the sink and start tracing the lines and see if valves are installed in the lines and are turned off. Also unscrew the aerator from the kitchen faucet a be sure the screen is not clogged with debris.

For me no water from kitchen faucet generally means the faucet screen it is plugged up. Just takes one little piece of grit from a 20 year old plumbing system. Sounds like you need to check and reset the breaker for the circut the trailer is are plugged in to. And maybe look for another one. If you are not getting 110 the lights, ref, etc. are only going to work until the batteries are depleted. Frig. must be running on propane? Is there a little light on it that tells?

For 120 volt electric, I use a no-contact voltage tester. For 12 volt, I use a small 12 volt battery charger, a 12 volt jumper light, a small multi-meter and for towing lights, a 7-way tester.

Water is easy on my trailer and is all visible above the floor except for about 4' crossover.

My trailer didn't come with any warning systems. I installed a new CO detector, a new LP gas detector, and a new smoke detector. My fixtures, (like furnace, water heater, and air-conditioner,) plus appliances, (namely, refrigerator and cooking stove/oven) were all OEM installed in 1976. I replaced them all.

Old, second hand, gas appliances and fixtures doesn't work for me. The good part about replacing everything . . . is everything works like new. :-)

Oh, take the screen off the kitchen faucet water spout and clean it. It's probably clogged.

You should be able to download the manuel you need online. Another solution might be to go to the Airstream RV park near you and ask for a little help. You will be in good shape in no time.
