1996 Terry Electrical Problem

Hi new to site and i have a question. Me and my wife bought a 1996 Terry 24m in great shape except PO had supposedly changed out Converter and rewired it, here is where the problem is everything is powered and charges except that Air Conditioning compressor will not run with microwave plugged in but when that circuit is killed the A/C runs fine. I do not have any schematic to even trouble shoot to see if wired correctly ect. does anyone know where one might find an electrical schematic for something like this, the cover on it says it is a Model 6332 series 6300 A and i have attached photo. We are new to RVing and so far we love it, we knew going it that we where gonna have to fix things but this is really frustrating us and would like to put it past us. Any ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Click image for larger version

Welcome to iRV2.
It was not unusual for older RVs to have , manual by-pass for high draw items. To control total power use.
An older Komfort 5er I had there was a wall switch to change the power supply from the A/C to the microwave outlet.
You couldn't use both at the same time.
Other units I've seen, by-pass the electric side of the water heater, to power the A/C.

EDIT: A couple of things I see in the photo. The wire with the white cap appears to be attached to the C/B with a second wire. ( 2 wires connected to one C/B) and the wiring entering the bottom of the compartment, I see black and white hooked up, but no ground, and a grommet around the wires instead of a clamp, like the blue clamps on the wiring entering from the rear. These are not good wiring practices. Not to code.
Any chance the A/C was not a factory install?
I can't get enough resolution on the picture to be sure, is the wiring through the bottom of the compartment , aluminum or copper?
Looks like aluminum in the picture while the rest is copper.

Is that stranded wire , being used for 110v wiring, soldered to prevent crushing in the clamp ?
With the lack of clamp and ground wire, that wiring is in-correct and should be traced and replaced properly.
