James, this might help show you how to test your converter and install a new progressive

Converter problem

Time for some feedback!
I need to offer mea culpa because of my lack of maintenance, the level of water was low in the cells. After doing some other checks and filling the batteries, i may be alive again.
Raising the flag may help others with the same symptoms.
I didn't want to seem like chicken Little. I'll need further checking and more diligence.
Again, thanks to all for the response.

I must have been one of the fortunate ones because mine came with a PD9270. My trailer is a 2013 though if that makes any difference. Jerry.

It's a live and learn enviroment and this forum is a wealth of information. Just a heads up, if any part of the plates were exposed they are now dead. So, your batteries will have less capacity in those cells if exposed.
