Converter fuses maybe?

A little more info would help. Is there a battery in the TT? Are you missing 12VDC power or 120VAC power? Does the air conditioner work?

Welcome to the forum.

By "... hooked to electric .." do you mean at your house or 30amp at a campground?
Have you checked the circuit breakers? Were some of them shutoff when you parked it?

Battery could be dead if not disconnected all winter. Have you checked your GFIC ? Most outlets are on that circuit. It may be in the bathroom or? Push the little button and reset it.

Your Air Conditioner will not work if your trailer is plugged into a standard house outlet. Are you plugged into a campground/30 amp outlet?

Your fridge light and interior lights all work off 12 volts (trailer battery). Have you tried connecting your trailer to your tow vehicle with the engine running to see if your 12 volt lights work?

The microwave works then you are getting 110 volts. The AC should work off 110 if nothing else is running. Sounds like you may have breakers that need to be reset.

I believe that the air conditioner must have 120 volts AC and 12 volts DC in order to run - the DC, I think, runs the thermostat and relay.

RVHiker is right. It is easy to get confused with the mixture of 12 volt and 110 volt systems and how they work together. I think you have a 12volt problem and I would start with the ground wire from the battery.
