Unhappy 2001 flagstaff battery won't charge

I Don't know what to do but I have put a new battery on the camper after we lost all the lights and power to the refrig and the slide out. The lights started going dim and the refrig started getting warmer. I bought a new battery at camping world and we were fine for a few days and then it went dead. The camper was hooked to real power the entire time and the ac worked fine. I don't know if there is something I don't see, but the breakers are on and the fuses under the refrig are fine. Any suggestions?

It sounds like your convertor is not charging the battery when you're plugged into shorepower. IF you have a voltage tester, you can check the voltage across the battery when plugged into 120 AC. It should read at least 13.5 V DC if the convertor is working properly.

This would also be why your previous battery was DOA.

it would help knowing what type of Flagstaff you have, a TT, hybrid or popup.
also, what model number it is.

also, what brand/model converter it has.
