My converter has a 15 amp circular fuse button that I push in to use when plugged in. Not familiar with your converter. I like to keep things simple and go from there. Even though the fuses app like they are ok replace them. Also check that micro switch in the corner as stated by 19H F250. I don't have one of those, but my pup is 30 years old.

It took me a few tries to figure out how it all worked. I'm sure you will also.

Thanks all.... 19H, The micro switch is good. Bedrck, I replaced all 4 automotive fuses anyways, just in case. No luck.

Tnchuck, I will try to find the interior fuses, I did have the converter out once and didn't notice any other fuses, but I will take another look.

I'm leaning toward the theory that your battery is connected backwards. Black should be connected to positive (+) battery terminal and white to ground (-). That is reverse from what you might think. The lights will work wired either way, but when you plug into shore power, the converter will shut it all down.

Battery is wired properly. I double checked...

At this point I'm thinking it's the converter. Still have to check for any interior fuses I may be missing. Looks like a wfco8735p will be my option.

Before you replace the convertor take it apart There may be a internal fuse on the circuit board that may be blown.

Hey Bedrck..... I am doin' my happy dance!!! It was just what you suggested I check. There was a little 5 amp 250 volt fuse inside the converter on the circuit board that was blown! Fixed it for $3.49 and have spares. Thank you very much. I'd have never known to check there! Yesss!
