If your Overlander is similar to mine, the converter (Univolt) is plugged into an electrical outlet in the cabinet where it is house - - that would be the first place that I would suggest checking to be sure that electric power is available. If you find that electric power is not available to that outlet, then the first place that I would check is the circuit breaker box to be sure that both circiuit breakers have been reset. If you still don't have power, I would look for a switch either very near that cabinet or near the primary sleeping area that might serve the purpose of activating that outlet. If you have power to the outlet, but no "humming" from the Univolt, the Univolt is likely on the disabled list.
Good luck with your investigation!
