If the battery is bad, and you replaced it, I'd still evaluate the converter since you may just kill the new battery by using a bad converter. Use a digital multimeter to check the voltage when the camper is plugged in as TRIGUY suggests

If you charged the battery up and everything is working then the battery is not bad. You most likely have a bad converter. It is not charging the battery and not delivering 12 volts when plugged into shore power. Before replacing the battery have your local battery shop do a load test on the battery to see if it is bad and has to be replaced. Do not want you to spend money on a battery if the converter is the problem.
