Happy Cajun here again.

I have a problem with my 12 volt system. When plugged in to 110 volts it looks like my battery is not getting charged.I leave my rv hooked upto 110 volts all the time. i recently went in with no 12 volt equipment working.i hooked up a battery charger to the battery and everything worked. I do not find a fuse on the converter that is blown. Ths is the second time this happens since i have the unit stored.Could it be the converter is gone?

Carl - Unplug your RV from shore power, wait 15 minutes for the battery to stabilize, and then measure the battery voltage; it should be 12 - 12.5 volts. Then, plug your RV into shore power and again check the battery voltage; you don't have to wait 15 minutes. Let us know what you find. Good luck. - Dave

To add to what Dave said. After you have the unit unplugged for 15 minutes and read the battery 12 to 12.5 volts. When you plug your unit in ,if the converter is working the battery voltage will be close to 13.8 volts if it is working properly.

Well I unplugged the unit from 110 volts and waited ,checked the volts and it was right over 12 volts.

I then plugged into 110 volts again and there was no change in the battery voltage.My RV is under an extendeed warranty with a $100.00 deductable so I will be bringing it in to the Dealership for them to check out the inverter/converter. Thanks fro the help!
