Power converter

have a 2015 FR Georgetown 35. While plugged into shore power my batteries are going dead. I pulled the cover off the silver box in the rear which is the converter and the small green light at the base is not lit. Any help on where to start to resolve this issue is greatly appreciated. Maybe where the fuse is??? I have a trip in a week. I have called warranty number and it is seems to be kind of hard to get in touch with someone, but maybe they will call today.

Not sue about the green light but make sure your battery switch is on.

Yep, what he said. However, don't assume your battery switch is on just because it is lit. The light in my switch stays on in the off and on position

Don't know if this will help or not. I have not physically looked at these fuses. This is just a note I copied from a post for future reference if I needed it;



Fuse one - protects the battery and is located right AT the battery. If this is open everything works in the camper (including slides and stabilizers) when on external power, there is 13+ volts on the camper, and yet the battery will not charge.

Fuse two - protects the camper from the tow vehicle's charging circuit and is located near the pigtail junction box. If this is open (and you are on shore power), everything works inside at 13+ volts BUT the main slides, power stabilizers/jacks, and power tongue jack (if equipped) will not and the battery will not charge.

Converter

Make sure the converter is plugged in. On my 378, the converter is in the last bay, left side, where the ATS and power cord are. One must put his upper torso into the bay to see where the converter plugs in to a 110V outlet.
