another thought

Could the two empty fuse holders be "reverse polarity" fuse positions? I would think if they were missing there would be no power to converter ?

I'm unfamiliar with reversing fuses - can I put a couple 15 amp fuses in there to test it, or is that going to potentially cause an issue?

The empty fuse holders look like they are for other devices that are not installed in this camper, therefore no fuse. The empty terminal lug under each one is the give away. Those positions are also blank on the fuse chart but can't see enough detail to see what it says on there.

Looking at it now, it says:

1) 15 Porch
2) | Kit
3) | Bath
4) | Furn & Refer
5) | Living

1 Acc) 7.5 Radio

fuses

There are (in most I've seen) two (usually 40a) fuses to protect the camper if the battery is hooked up backwards. Hard to see in the pictures but couldn't hurt anything to put a fuse in those holders to see if there is any change. The wires going to those fuse positions look larger than the ones going to the other fuses?

Stop worrying about the converter. That can only confuse things. We know that's okay and all the wiring from to breaker/fuse panel because it all works when you're plugged in to shore power. You need to trace the wire back from where it connects to the wire from the converter 12v line to your battery. There's a break somewhere along there.

Sound advice. I think I'll swing into an auto parts store on the way home and grab some 6AWG wire. At this point spending this weekend pulling wires is the easiest option. I removed the converter and took a look behind it where the wiring comes into the trailer, it all looks intact, but who knows what is unseen.

If I get lucky maybe I'll discover a previously unknown in-line fuse, or some other easy fix
