A/C disconnect box

My son recently bought a house trailer. I note the Coleman A/C has no disconnect and not even the main circuit breaker in entrance panel affects it. I also note all the other trailers in this park seem to be wired same way - no exterior disconnect box. We have no idea where it's power is coming from.

A/C disconnect box

I agree. But apparently it does not go thru the main entrance panel. I don't think any repairman would work on it without a disconnect. But looks like this fairly large trailer park is wired the same. No disconnects visible on the neighbors, with same A/C. Didn't want to crawl under trailer with live power running somewhere. Flex conduit heads under trailer, but can't see where it goes.

Someone's going to have to...
Is there a meter socket with breakers outside?

A/C disconnect box

Disconnect should be at meter outside. Common set up in my area.
