No good ideas, but I do have some questions...
My converter runs continually when connected to shore power. I can tell because of the voltage shows my battery being 'trickle' charged. My converter fan doesn't usually run, however so I can't tell by sound if the converter is running. Are you hearing the converter fan? Is that what you mean by your converter runs continually?
How do you know the battery isn't being charged on shore power? Have you checked your battery with a voltmeter?
How do you know the battery isn't being charged by the tow vehicle? There is usually very little battery charging that occurs when being towed. The wiring is too small to allow sufficient current flow for battery charging.
