One of your breakers in your main panel should be for either one of those. Simply test receptacle for power as you try flipping each breaker off and on, until you find the right one. Quite often a high amperage draw item like electric frying pan, or hotplate plugged into the one by the kitchen area is the culprit. If they smell, or appear burnt or scorched, they should be changed, as well as the entire circuit tested for proper size wiring, as well as rated receptacle to handle big power( amperage draw). Extension cords will also cause same problem. Make sure if you have to use an extension cord, that is a heavier gauge wire, approved for that use, and is as short as possible. I'm assuming your AC is plugged in to a receptacle, and not on roof?

On some later model Montana 5th wheels, there are actually three holding tanks which will eventually require draining. (two grey tanks, 1 for the kitchen sink(s) and 1 for the bath tub & bathroom sink, and one black tank, obviously the toilet...) The two most used drain valves (1 black & 1 grey) are together in the docking station area where the city water supply is hooked up, the other (kitchen sink) is at the left rear of the coach behind the farthest rear wheel along the frame. (That is where "Keystone" installed the grey tank for the galley, or kitchen if you prefer.)
If certain it is the black tank which won't dump when the black tank valve is pulled, there is a restriction before the valve (or the valve itself is not opening hence a broken cable to the valve?) One might try "snaking" up into the sewer line, measuring the distance from the outlet to the valve location, assuring it is either open or closed. Once that has been determined, you will at that point have to remove the sewer line at the valve for repair. Be sure to wear latex gloves and eye protection and have a drain pan or bucket handy for spillage which can be collected and dumped down your home toilet or outside sewer clean out if you know its location.
Map sensor bad or vacuum &/or power to it missing. Map sensor located on intake manifold or firewall. It has a vacuum hose & electrical connector attached to it. To verify it is bad disconnect electrical connector to it while running. Idle should smooth out & run good. If so need to replace.
