Help! Electrical issue!

First time out with new trailer and last nite AC stopped working. On 50 amp power, no breakers or fuses tripped. Lites in trailer dim as well. Unplugged and reset outside still not remedy problem. Thinking I'm not getting enough power. Help!!! Hot here at the beach!

There's a fuse in the thermostat which will stop it from working if blown / broken.

Sound like a loose connection in the pedestal or a worn out receptacle. Do you have a 30 to 50 adapter. Plug into the 30 and see if it corrects the issue, just don't try to run both ac's.

Could be low voltage in the park as well.

I will check fuse in thermostat. 30 to 50 adapter is ok as well. Fuse ok too. Have to check with management about low power next. Only 1 AC. 2015 jayflight 29qbs.

Really vague info in the original post. OP is on 50A, but has only one AC. Is the trailer set up for 30A or 50A service. Any outlets or microwave work? He said lights are dim, but those operate on 12V, not 120. AC also requires 12VDC for control. All DC fuses checked?

Then the pedestal power is OK. If the 12VDC is good, then it's an AC or thermostat problem.

Had repair guy out just now. Both fuses popped for converter. Couldn't see them. 156 bucks later and AC back running again.
