My International lost electricity w/ extention cord

Hi Folks!
Ya, I have a 31ft Airstream, and was told it was a '71 International? Well, it also has a plaque for being a Land Yacht and Sovereign.
So I cannot at this time verify the model but it is a '71 or '72 and 31 ft. It was plugged into the house via an extension cord for a couple of months when all of a sudden I have no juice.
Can anyone tell me what to check? I have checked the extension cord and where it plugs in. I have a feeling it may be a fuse or something.
I am living in this "Thing of Beauty " and would love some feedback.
Thank you, Lorna

Put your serial number, from the placard by the door, if you have one up here and someone can decode it for you.

A International would be like a trim line on a vehicle. It would reflect how it was decorated with finishes and appointments.

Welcome to the forum Lorna!

Make sure the extension cord is plugged in well (making good electrical connections) by disconnecting it at the house and trailer, then plug it back in at both locations.

Go to where your extension cord is plugged into the house, and see if another electrical appliance/device works when you plug it into the same electrical outlet. A small lamp, drill, hair dryer etc. will do.

And let us know what you find . . .

You may need to locate the house's fuse panel (if an old house) or circuit breaker panel to see if a fuse is blown or circuit breaker tripped.

Have you had any electrical (lightning) storms recently?
