You didn't say what year your camper was. If it was an older model it may not have had a smart charger. Most later model (2005+) campers have 3 stage smart chargers and can remain on 24/7 without cooking the battery.

If yours IS a late model and stays at 14.2 V the converter is defective.

2005 model motor home (Granite Ridge). The charger had an option for a module that turned it into a "smart/smarter" charger. I've added the module. Easiest upgrade ever.

Thanks everyone for your input. I will purchase a volt meter to check the voltage in the TT and go from there. The expertise I see in these replies is really impressive.
