Trouble shooting Univolt

We just purchased our first Airstream. It is a 72 27' Overlander. It is in very good condition. All the 120v works. The DC lights will not work when camper is connected to 110 power. I put a new battery in the camper and the lights come on.
I've checked all the fuses and they are good. I checked for voltage on the univolt there is no voltage. Early today I had voltage.
Is there a fuse/breaker box in the trailer? I can not find one.
We have the key to the door and it will not open the compartments, should we have a second key?

There is a power panel for the shore power. Mine is located in the closet in the bathroom. One of the branch circuits feeds the converter. Mine plugs into a standard 110 volt outlet which is located in the same closet, but under a shelf.

Thanks for the info, but I can not find a breaker pannel. I checked the closet in the bathroom. I have opened all cabinets and side compartments.

Found the breakers, they are not the problem. They were in the bathroom closet.

I had a similar problem and traced it to a couple small glass fuses in the closet. There was a small fuse block and one of the fuses had come loose. Pushed the fuse back in and everything works. The fuse block on mine is by the wheel inside a cabinet.
