2021 Jay feather converter

Good day everyone, i just bought a 2021 Jay feather 22RB and I was wondering if anyone can tell me if the converter actually charges the battery while the trailer is plugged into shore power?

It seems like it doesn’t. If i look at the Solar charge controller, it shows 12 volts and then when I turn on interior lights for instance, the voltage drops to about 10V even when the trailer is plugged into 120 VAC shore power. That just doesn’t make sense to me. In fact, I’m not sure the battery is getting charged at all except by the solar panel.

When the trailer is plugged in, I assumed the lights would be powered by 12vdc power output on the converter not by the battery. Any insight would be helpful…
Confused ��

Turn lights on with shore power plugged in. Pull the ground off the battery. If the lights go out, your inverter is not charging the battery. Make sure 15 amp breaker is on not tripped. Remove panel cover and test for 12vdc where the larger conductors connect. The output of the converter should be 13.2 or near that. If no dc volts, converter has likely failed.
