Main compartment power issues

Hello,

We are needing to take our new motorhome in for the 3rd time in 3 months for the same/similar issue. The first time we had full hookups and the low voltage peeping went off. We turned the power supply off and it still beeped. We took it in and they said it was a wiring issue and that they fixed it.

We then took our motorhome out again with full hookups, but the battery wouldn't charge and again started getting the low voltage beeping. So, we took it back to be fixed and picked it up yesterday. They said they ordered a new converter. They also fixed our shower leak. However, today the beeping started all over again!

Has anyone had similar problems? We can't believe they didn't test it after installing the new converter because if they did, they would have seen it was not fixed. We have a trip scheduled for this weekend and another major one in 3 weeks. Not sure what to do at this point?

We have a 2014 Rayhawk 23xm. Also, the battery doesn't hold a charge for 5 minutes after taking it off of full electricity.

We had very similar issues with our brand new travel trailer. Swapped converter and issues remained, took it in and they found a ground bolt with 3 wires had broken.

My suggestion check grounds.

Thank you. I will mention that to the service department.

I forgot to mention that after the first issue, we bought a bigger battery also, so we shouldn't have issues with it not holding a charge.

It could be the light or exhaust fan. Switch on wall and on overhead unit. Turn switch at overhead unit on, use wall switch for on and off

does work them; there are 4 other switches that work the fan, vanity light, hall light and pump; this one is right beside the hot water heater (propane switch) just below the sink
