Or the breaker for the charging portion of the converter is off.
I assume it was all installed properly and connected in series. I had it done at the place where I bought my RV (Richardson's RV in Menifee, CA).

I'm a newbie so I don't know where the reverse polarity protection fuses is. Can you explain where the breaker for the charging portion of the converter is located?

Thanks so much in advance.

If your converter has the fuses then they are with the fuses in your panel.. But they would be off to the side and not in line with all the trailers fuses. Most likely they are 30amp or bigger.
The breaker is with the breakers in the same panel. It should be labeled.
It shuts off the battery charger.
OR the charger is simply broken.
If a shop charged you to do an installation, and your not too savy with electrical then take it back to them and let them check it out.

Perfect. Thanks a ton. I'll check it out.

We also received an Interstate battery on our new hybrid and after a year and a half it stopped holding a charge. Unfortunately, the dealership equipped our trailer with a standard battery, and not deep cycle.

My dealer equipped Exide is still going strong after 4 years, but **** that thing is heavy. I remove it after every trip because we store our camper in a "relatively secure" storage facility. When it poops out, I'm going to a much lighter battery since we don't boondock.
