Unhappy Electrical issue

I've got a 1986 Excella center bath. For some reason I'm not getting current from my breaker box to my roof mounted A/C. There is current at the junction box....but the line is dead at the A/C. The A/c worked fine when I bought it in Oct....I moved it 5 miles away to a storage facility to do some some cosmetic work on it. I turned it on the other day for the first time and there is no juice at the A/C. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated since I live in Texas....and we can't survive here without A/C.

Many thanks-Vic

What junction box are you referring to??
Where did you check for power at a junction box or at the circuit breaker panel?

Not sure about your unit but mine has a "junction box" inside the AC.

Check the circuit breaker turn it all the way "off and back on" to reset, the AC is on a circuit breaker by itself.

Look for a standard household light switch that doesn't seem to do anything. My parents' '87 (and my '91 B190) had a switch to select between the A/C and the microwave - you couldn't use both at the same time. In my parents' trailer (a 34'), it's mounted in a cabinet above the sinks or counter.

That switch is to the right above the sink on my trailer. I removed the switch and hooked the two wires together. The few times I use the microwave I can remember to turn the compressor off. You need to check to see if the breaker in the box is working. Sometimes they go bad and won't turn on.
