It does not sound like a big deal to run the converter without a battery if you are just going to do some maintenance on the camper (without running slides). Lights, radio, and TV should be fine.

Complete Email from WFCO

Lou,
I would say the AC powered heaters are consuming enough power to lower the AC voltage which depending on the decrease in voltage could affect the converter’s output.

In addition it could be the distance between shore power and the converter, the shore power voltage and amperage rating, the amount of DC lights turned on, the amp rating of the converter, the manufacture of the converter… More information and testing would help to resolve the issue.

Putting a battery in place is not solving the issue it’s just adding to the difficulty in finding the cause. From what I read the shore voltage and amperage have to be verified. The DC voltage and amp draw with and without the lights on has to be measured and the converter’s amperage rating has to be verified.

Yes Lou you may use this email.
Be Well,
Daniel Derrow
