No AC Power

I have a 2011 Flying cloud. I thought I had overloaded my shore power while running a small space heater and electric coffee machine and the heat pump kicked in. The breaker on the pole was ok and the breakers in the trailer were also ok.
I've just replaced the original converter, checked all grounds and connections in the panel, but still, no ac. DC seems to be running fine, but no charge from the shore power. I have solar and am getting charge from the solar.
Any suggestions?
Thanks for the help as I'm over my head!

Turn breakers all the way off then back on sometimes they trip but its hard to tell without flipping off/on.

Thanks Garry.

One more update, I switched my shore power from the front plug to the rear plug and now I have AC. Is there a fuse somewhere for the actual plug?

The change over relay is very very week. When too much current is drawn thru it it burns the relay contact pads breaking the circuit. There is no clue that this has happened. Plugging in up front will reset it. I had the same problem on the first couple of uses of our new 2012FB. Was just infuriating. Replaced the cheesy relay with a properly rated and designed change over contactor. I documented the whole replacement process in an earlier thread. Airstream is fully aware of the problem and they should replace it free of charge.

Sorry if plugged in up front changing to the rear will reset it and it should work at low current. If not the change over relay is completely burned up on the front circuit contacts. .
