Any suggestions what might be causing the problem?
A bad battery will cause any converter to act up. Did you disconnect the bad battery from the system when you jumped to your truck?

If not, do that and see how the converter acts.

It is good to monitor the DC voltage in the RV system with a meter. Even a cheap Harbor Freight unit will do. Lets you see what is really going on.

Another vote for Progressive Dynamics.

When the factory installed converter failed three years ago, I replaced it with a 90 amp Progressive Dynamics. The 70 amp model would have sufficed, but was unavailable at the time and I needed a quick replacement. It works great.

Thanks for all the replies. I have ordered a progressive dynamics 70 amp convertor just like Iggy 's. I also installed two new AGMs and unplugged the existing convertor until the new one arrives. Will be heading back to Florida from Maine with all new.

The link to the awning protector roller probably won't help you with your converter..

Someone had a rip in their awning and I asked them if they had a roller on their door.

Anyway, that link must have been stuck on my clipboard, and I didn't double check the link after I posted to this thread

ANYWAY - Here is the link to when I replaced my converter. Like I said. If I were doing this again, I would not remove the old converter, I'd just disconnect it, and install my new unit beside it on the floor. Here is the link I meant to post.
