Cool, you can check it with an adapter at your house, you don't have to wait until you're at a campsite.

Got an electrician to look at it and he suggested what everyone else has said which is to replace the connector plug. He could not find the circuit breaker box however which kind of surprised me. We looked in the rear driver side section and he found what may be called a junction box but not circuit breakers. He thought a previous owner may have removed them. Does that make any sense?
I guess nothing involving ill-advised changes to trailer wiring surprises me any more. The breakers are important for safety. If they were removed, new ones should be installed.

Perhaps someone with the same year and model of trailer can comment as to the usual location of the breaker panel. They can be hidden behind stuff, and for some years they are part of the 12v converter.

Most battery isolation switches are located near the 12 v fuses, and usually, these are fairly close to the batteries. Our rig, this is under the sofa in front.

You didn't mention this as a specific problem, but whenever I connect the Airstream to house power, I find that the weight of the adapter and AS power cable pulls down on the adapter where it is plugged into the wall and tries to unplug it. For the adapter to stay solidly plugged into the wall I need to support it with something so it doesn't have a downward force on it where it plugs into the wall.

The prongs in the receptacle have relaxed and will not hold the plug in place. Replace the receptacle as that issue over time will cause a burn on the prongs of both the plug and the receptacle and cause heat at that connection.

I have a heavy 50 AMP Cord and plug..whenever I plug in at home or campsite....it takes a bit of force to "seat" the plug into the recepticle... Or I do not use that recepticle... Lesson learned a while back....
