'70 Tradewind air conditioner won't turn on

I ran my air conditioner for about two days, day and night. Went out this morning and it was off.

It wont turn on, nor will the light right next to it, I think it may be a fuse. But as Im not a seasoned Airstream guy, I dont know where to look other than the rear access door on the passanger side.

The fair is in two weeks NEED HELP.

thanks Levi

Check fuse, then check the start and run capacitors. Next check would be the relay. Of course it would be helpful to know what A/C and I am assuming the original Armstrong.

The AC is powered by circuit a circuit breaker, not fuses. What type of power source are you plugged into? What is the current rating of the outlet you are plugged into?
Look for the 120volt power panel in your trailer, you may find a circuit breaker tripped. If it is tripped, turn it off, then back on.
