Thanks in advance

Jeff

Unhappy Similar problem , my house batteries do not charge?

I have a similar problem than the initial post,
Even if my RV is plugged in the 110 Vac , my batteries do not charge and are coming down
I have the microwave working and the AC and all of the Outlets working also , but it seems like the converter is off duty and do not provide any recharge current to the house batteries??

I have a Solera 2011 type 24SS
Can somebody tell me where i can find the 2 output fuses of the converter , i will check that first.

Thanks a lot in advance

Jeff

As said, on or inside the converter.

Ditto...on or inside the converter. If you know the make and model # (should be printed on the converter) you can go on line to the mfr. site and get the manual for actual location if you can't find it.

There is a panel cover -- I believe it is under the refrigerator. (If not, then just to the right, at floor level.) -- you need to remove a couple of screws to remove it.

I didn't actually do this. Other family member (son) did it. But I'm pretty sure that's where it is.

Jeff - Did you check the circuit breakers? (My post #3 above). The fuses blowing is rare; the converter circuit breaker tripping on hook up to shore power is common.

Good advice, Bob. I do turn off the pedestal breaker when plugging in - still occasionally trip the converter breaker. Don't know why. Suspect some form of capacitor charge surge within the converter.
