Check the fuses in the invertor/convertor Your lights are 12 volts also check all the circuit breakers in the panel.


Does the frige work on propane?

Check your battery or battery disconnect switch. Lights run off 12v from battery.

If your plugged into 110 volts Your 12 volt lights should work off of the converter even if your battery is disconnected. You need the battery to operate the lights when your not on 110 volts.

Sounds like your 12V supply is out, but 110V working.
Could be your converter. I believe your converter, converts 110V to 12V when plugged in.

I had a similar problem. Ended up being converter.
I took number off converter and ordered replacement online.

About a 30 minute job if that's it.

Here is a typical 30A POWER Configuration Block Diagram...

Might help figuring out what has failed...


Google image

Your 120VAC shore power connection should be powering up the 120VAC Power Distribution when hooked up. This is how your microwave is working now...

Your 12VDC Power distribution Panel is powered up by the CONVERTER/Charger unit when on Shore Power and/or the 12V Battery.

Obviously something is this regard is not working. Both the converter/charger unit and the 12VDC Battery provides 12VDC to the 12VDC Power Distribution Panel.

If the converter/charger 120VAC Breaker is ON it should be putting out 13.6VDC feeding the 12VDC Distribution Panel. This 13.6VDC should operate your lights

Need to check connectivity from the 12V battery to the 12VDC Distribution Panel... Perhaps you have connected the battery terminal cables in REVERSE ORDER... Find the word 'NEG' or the Symbol '-' on the battery case and make sure this is the cable that goes directly to frame ground.

If you did see some sparks when you hooked up the battery terminal you may have now blown the two REVERSE POLARITY fuses as well as a in-line fuse very close to the battery terminals... You need to make sure the cables are put on correctly before replacing these fuses if they are blown otherwise it will just blown them again.

If you study this for a bit it should all start making sense of what is failing...

You didn't say what model you own, that would be helpful to give on point advice. In any case welcome to camping.

My refrigerator works on propane ( little flame icon ) 110 volt AC. ( little plug icon and has an off position. Some models only work on 110 and some have a setting to run on 12 volt. Check to make sure it is set on 110 AC. It will take up to 24 hours to get to max cold.

If you battery is hooked up correctly and you are not plugged in your info panel should show the condition of the charge. You can also buy a gadget to see if 12 volts is available via the 12 volt wall plug. I got this one to see exact voltage of the battery to help with long term use and care.

Use the search tool near the top and you can find out a lot of info on batteries and refrigerators.
