Do your lights still work with the battery disconnected and you are hooked up to shore power?

tnchuck100. No lights but my TV and microwave work. from everything I'm reading here and on other sites it looks like there might be fuses at my converter box that are blown. Can you or anyone tell me where that might be located so I can check?

The microwave works on 120V. It does not use the converter or the battery.

If you do not have lights with the battery disconnected you absolutely have a converter problem.

There should be two green 30 amp fuses in the converter. One is a reverse polarity protection fuse. Since you have already stated you hooked up the battery backward that fuse should be blown.

You have already stated all the fuses were good. Did you check them for continuity or just a visual inspection?

Don't forget to check the fuse on the battery box. May have blown that one also if none of the other breakers are tripped. Should be right close to the battery hookup.

Based on he says he has lights with the battery connected that fuse must be good.

I think tnchuck100 has nailed it; there are fuses on your converter that are blown.

I did a visual only but when batteries were fully changed everything worked so i don't think theres an issue there. I need to locate my converter on my camper and change the fuses. I am thinking my problem will be solved. Any ideas where to look for it??

Did you not tell us you found the breakers and fuses? The converter is where they are located. I am now suspecting you really have not located the converter.

Please clarify this.

The converter should not be that difficult to locate. It is typically a panel approximately 12 in. X 12 in. It may be on any non-exterior wall surface but rarely behind a door. I have never seen one that is actually hidden. Below the refrigerator? Under a bench seat? Under the bed? Probably somewhere near where your shore power cable enters.

I have found my normal breakers and fuses. They are located just inside my door to the bottom. They have all checked out.

The fuse in the battery compartment is fine-- it's a 30 amp fuse

I have not found the converter box yet. That was my last question did anyone know where to look? I am not there until this evening so I won't know until I get there. was trying to speed things up to get it checked when I arrive.

I will chaeck all those suggestions. Much appreciated

Post a picture of these breakers and fuses you have described.

I have never seen a situation where the converter and the breakers were located separately.
