Converter and Battery Charging

We have had the 195RB for 2 months now. It is permanently set up on our own private camping property and my only source of power is a Yami inverter generator. Everything has worked flawlessly. However, when I first fired up the generator and checked the voltage I found the battery was not charging. When I wiggled the fuse the fan in the converter started up and it went to 13.5 volts. Since then, same thing. Out of 10 times, 8 times i have to wiggle the fuse to start the charging.

Comments...advice?

Odd...no idea. I guess I'd look at the fuse, replace it. Look at the wiring, though not so sure how easy that would be to see the connections behind the DC fuse holders. I've pulled the load panel, but only to deal with the AC side.

Which fuse is it, that you are wiggling?

The fuse panel has a whole bank of fuses. Its the fuse for the converter, I believe its labeled reverse polarity.
