Exclamation AC Voltage issues Featherlite 16

Testing with multimeter, each breaker reads close to 120 VAC, until the breaker to the converter is switched on. Then all AC reads 89 VAC. Even at the plug coming in (pulled out slightly to probe). First thought is replace converter, but the voltage drop doesn't make sense. Anyone seen this before?

Do you have the dc fuses pulled and all the load side breakers off. try that and turn on each one until you see which is causing the excessive load.

If it drops with no load start looking for a replacement.

Probably a poor connection on an AC plug or wire. Check cleanliness of connectors on your shore power. Check wire tightness on the converter input.

It sounds like the introduction of any load (converter in this case) causes the poor connection to show up. Leaving the converter off, introduce another load like the microwave or anything that provides a substantial AC load and see if the same thing happens.

Are you at home, possibly on a long extension cord? Are you plugged into a 15 amp outlet that is a long distance from your home electrical panel? Long runs will cause voltage drop; small wire will make it worse.

Don, Yes, shore power was the issue. Questionable power on an outside plug. Problem gone when plugged into different home circuit. Thanks for tips.

Turns out the house outdoor outlet is the problem. Thanks for all the tips.
