I just got a multi meter. My old battery was only at 6 volts. So just installed a new battery. Now how do I check to see if the converter is working?

without ac applied to tt take a voltage reading. then take a reading with ac hooked up. voltage should be at least 1 to 1 1/2 volt higher.

can you hear the cooling fan at all when your have several lights on ?
the cooling fan is the weak link in a wfco converter . when the fan gives up the ghost
the converter over heats and shuts down .
once it cools off it starts back up again only to fail miserably a short time later without a cooling fan .
After mine did this a few years ago I replaced it with a progressive dynamics and everything was fine .
testing your wfco brand convertor .

No fan noise. Ac plugged in, no reading on the voltage meter for power going to the battery
