Hi everyone- success! Thank you for the insights... The battery measured 13.5v after a good charge. During inspection, I also found a blown 25amp fuse between the battery and the converter. I'm not sure "why" it's there... It sits on the red line from the battery heading into the camper... But between a new fuse and fully charged battery, we seem to work off 12v now! Thanks again... Happy Camping!

The fuse is primarily there to protect against reverse connected battery, but if the battery is drained very low, it can sometimes blow when the convertor is first powered up and starts charging as the charging current can be high.
