I am having a problem finding the source of AC to the inverter/converter. It shut off and I don't find any circuit breakers flipped.

There's fuses or breakers on the inverter itself. Please post your year and model of your RV so others with similar ones can assist further.

The source of power to the inverter should be a 30amp breaker in your AC power panel. If your coach is 50amp service and you are plugged in to a 50amp outlet, there is the possibility that one leg of the circuit is broken. Check the outlet for 240VAC across the two legs. If OK, check that 240VAC is inside the AC power panel. If not check that both legs are getting through the transfer switch. If the power is getting into the transfer switch but one leg or both are not getting through the switch, the transfer switch is probably defective. If both legs are not getting to the Transfer switch, look for a problem in the main power cord or plug.

Breaker box should be at the foot of the bed.

I had an 02 Fleetwood Discovery and the inverter was behind the dual tires on the drivers side. If I remember correctly there were two 15 amp breakers on it.

This is a '05 Fleetwood Expedition, Deisel. 458 inverter, You are right, sometimes I plug in at home and the panel shows only 30 amps. but I have no power to the gfi in thr bathroom or to the slide or down to the inverter. Going to check my cords. Transfer switch is new.

Power..AC

Well I found the problem! The sensor for Batt. temp was shorted on the batt. end. I unplugged it and the converter came on. Allowed power to the bathroom GFCI and now I have full power! Thanks for the replies!
