power converter

My power converter is making a buzzing sound and I'm wondering if that means its starting to crap out on me. it didn't do it when it was new, trailer is 4 years old. Should i put a new one in?

Pull the cover off with battery disconnected and no pedestal power. Look for the fan. Try pulling fan out and see if it spins smoothly. If not its just a computer fan. Find a replacement. While in there tighten all the wire screw downs. Sometimes they get loose cause funny things to happen.
Reconnect battery and pedestal power see if the noise is gone.

Some manufacturers put in the sleeve bearing PC type fan. Remove the fan and poke a hole in the sticker and put oil on the bearing, or replace the fan with a ball bearing one (most Dell PC's have a ball bearing fan).
