Tripped breaker or what?

My dh was doing some mods in our 2012 grey wolf 27bhks. He had the a/c on (plugged into a dedicated breaker at the house) and his drill. Something somewhere tripped. Is there a breaker box in the camper somewhere or where else can he check - any thoughts?

Thanks!

1st would be the breaker in the camper, then the house.

I'll go search the camper for the breaker box.

There is a power center somewhere in the camper, probably near the floor. Many times it is mounted under the fridge, as it fits well there.

On 1 side will be the AC circuit breakers, on the other will be the DC fuses. The air conditioner should be on a dedicated circuit, so if both the air conditioner and drill quite working at the same time, that is an indication that either the breaker to the house receptacle tripped, or the main breaker at the power center tripped.

Look fine?
You may have to flip each breaker back and forth to see if its tripped.
Some times you can't "see" it tripped.

It turned out to be a problem at the house outlet. Thanks for the help!
