On my 70 overlander, my fridge has stopped working. Any suggestions on what to check first.

first make sure the trailer is level. Those old fridges need a fairly level surface or they just don't work. You can burp it ( look that up here) but you will have to take it out to do that

Which part gas, electric (dc) or ac. Insure that the trailer is level and connections are clean.

We pulled into my driveway last night with the Overlander. Final Price was 840.00 and I paid my buddy some to help haul it back. I'm going to start working on it this evening with some little things, my dad is making me a jumper cable to power the lights using the outside outlet so we can diagnose any problems, my brother is a mechanic and he stopped by to check it out, said for a 1970 model it looked great to him. let's just say I can't wait to get started after work tonight!

That's absolutely a bargain. I paid almost as much for a donor Argosy from which I really only needed a pano window and the back bumper. Enjoy the work, and someday enjoy going camping!

I've checked everywhere in closets and the sink, I found the fuse block but isn't there an actual break box?

Breaker box should be somewhere near the converter and fuse block. Rear streetside closet?
