Hi my name is Robert.....

The AC power should come out of the breakers where the converter panel is located. I would verify the source or hookup to another source to make sure it is not the problem. Shut the breakers off, then go unplug for a few mins, plug back in and turn the breakers on one at a time. After you plug back in go around and make sure you did not trip any GFI"S, these will be outlets with a test and reset on them, normally they are in the bathroom or galley but can be just about anywhere else including the outside.

Beyond that if you do not have a generator built in the cord will go directly to that breaker panel, and you would need to see if you have voltage at the panel. I would also get a polarity checker and check the polarity of the voltage, most home improvement stores have the checkers for a few dollars, it will tell you if there is a wiring fault, it will plug into the outlets.....

Hope this helps some, please let me know if you have more questions or concerns, follow ups are included..... Robert
