Depends on what type controller you have on your rig.

The converter (battery charger portion) is trying to do its job against a failed battery. The charger is working hard, generating heat that the fan must get away from the circuitry.

Replace the battery, let the rig sit 24 hours plugged in and then see where you are.

For this new battery, read and re-read the sticky on long-term battery care:
- Complete disconnection and avoid freezing when the RV is out of service
- Leave on an automatic charger year round


Either of those choices will give maximum life to a flooded-cell battery.
