We're having a strange electricl issue that leads me to believe either I had a converter going bad or a bad breaker. Here's is what's happening... After retrieving the trailer from storage, I noticed our new battery was pretty much drained. After connecting up the 110 power, I only had limited power - the microwave had power and several of the outlets, but the LP detector was regristering low voltage, the lights would not work and the AC would not turn on. If I flipped the breaker for the converter, the lights would flick once. After about 5 or 6 flicks (very slow and controlled) the breaker for the converter would engage and everything would begin working.
Since the battery was pretty much drained, I had assume the inverter would now recharge the battery. After 12 hours, the converter went out again, lights dimmed, AC shut off, etc, etc... checking the battery level showed only two LEDs and I had to work with the converter breaker again for 10 minutes before it worked.
Is the problem the actual breaker or the converter? I'm thinking of replacing the breaker, but only have a couple of 20amp breakers here at the house. Can I use a 20amp breaker instead of the 15amp? I would prefer the 20amp as we normally trip the 15 amp every morning cooking breakfast outside.
Thanks for the assistance...
