2005 22' Safari Question on electric and fridge

Good day- I'm a new airstream owner and a new member to the forum. I just got a 2005 22 foot Safari and I am having to find my way around it's workings from scratch until I get in operators or owners manual. I got it from an estate sale where someone passed away. I'll track down the service place here soon enough but most everything is working with the exception of the AC outlets inside when I'm plugged in the shore power. They air-conditioner works fine but not the AC outlets. I have a 45 foot motor home so I'm not exactly green, but I can't find a master switch anywhere that might allow the AC outlets to function. I looked around for a GFI switch on one of the outlets and didn't see one unless I overlooked it.

The other thing is the Dometic Fridge doesn't seem to be kicking on. This unit has been sitting for two years without use. Maybe something is froze up like a compressor? It's not doing anything on electric, but the propane tanks were empty and I have to go back down there, hook up the propane and maybe it will work on propane. I can hear something clicking as if it's a pilot light trying to light. Would it be correct to presume that when it's working on propane that there's some kind of a starting switch or pilot to get it started which is what I'm hearing?

On this forum here I found someone that posted a link to upgrading their standard roof vents to Fantastic Fans. I believe these are asking their size and standard opening. Anyway, here was the link they put.

Fan-Tastic Fan Vent

I'm almost certain that the fan in the opening sizes are standard and there's no need to be concerned with getting the wrong size but just wanted to double check.

My direct e-mail if you can CC me they are is I haven't gotten into the habit of logging onto the site regularly yet.
Thank you in advance for the advice.

foontoon... My 2007 25' has a 20 amp 120v A/C breaker for the A/C and a separate 20 amp 120v A/C breaker that protects the refrig and all of the 120v A/C receptacles. Check your breakers in the converter box for a tripped breaker.
