keep blowing convertor

I have a 2010 22ft Jayflight. We used a generater 2 times and the convertor blew
The dealer replaced it under warrantee both times. they said the newer trailers are too sensitive. Our generator is a 3500 and the breaker on it pops on overload. Anybody have any ideas?

Hey Beaver - first of all - welcome to the forum! If you have a chance, come on over to the new member forum and introduce yourself.

Have not heard of problems in that regard and I am suspect of the comment about being too sensitive. It sounds to me like it could be a noisy generator. I would suggest getting it checked for proper frequency, waveform, voltage, etc.

What kind of generator is it?

I am curious as to the age and make of the generator. My parents had a small Honda generator that went wild and would rev up and blow all the light bulbs that were turned on. It never did hurt the converter but after the one incident they took it in to a shop and evenutally threw it away.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.
