Check the circuit breakers.

Shut them all off, then flip them back on.

Of course make sure that the trailer city power cable is plugged into a hot outlet.

Unless someone has modified the electrical system, your Airstream has a "converter" which changes the city power to 12 volts DC.

Airstream has never made a trailer equipped with an inverter, which takes 12 volts DC and changes it to 120 volts AC.

Hi Andy,
There is a Freedom 7 inverter/ battery charger in my trailer. I have checked all of the power sources. I have looked at the fuses and reset the button on the inverter. Are there additional circuit breakers? I looked in the manual and did not see any location of any?
thank you

LIke Andy mentioned...check your AC circuit breakers...they are on a separate panel from your DC fuses.

In our AS, the DC panel is in the front, and the AC panel is in the rear, in the bath, as we have a rear bath setup...find that AC panel and you will be able to tell if a breaker has 'tripped' off, etc.
