The converter box is usually inside the coach. Ours is on the floor under the refrig. On our old class c (circ 1988) it was inside just above the floor on the platform that the bed sat on.

The Converter(Power Distribution Panel) will look something like this. It's located inside the trailer. Most of the times it's installed in the kitchen area.

I found it! I opened it. Yup, it was the converter box and a 20amp breaker marked AC was tripped. I tripped it back and it will not stay there. I am fearing a short somewhere in the wiring. The AC does make a clicking sound if I turn it on, so it's trying <G>.
Who do I call? My electrician? The HVAC guy down the street?

Thanks so much, Mike and all. I will be on the phone in the morning.
This should not be happening. The trailer was used for 2 weeks and then sat for a year. Now it's sitting again, but in our driveway, not the seller's.

Thanks so much, Mike. I am hoping somebody will make a service call here. I will try the first folks and keep my fingers crossed. The listings are all residential, so maybe one of them is hungry enough to come over here.

If there are no breakers tripped, you may need to remove the cover to the a/c unit and inspect it, there may be a good chance that the capacitor is bad do to the storm. With this typy of capacitor it will burn and when this happens the PC board that it is connect to has to be replaced. I have a pic of what it looks like on my work computer and I can post it on Monday. It is posted here on the forum but I can't find it.

Rockwood, thanks.
The breaker is indeed tripped and stays that way. It just flops around. I will call a repair person tomorrow.
I appreciate all the great help here.
