I still think the problem is your battery.
BINGO, battery was registering 10.2 volts at the shop, BONE DRY, and had signs of overcharging, which im praying is due to the low levels of fluid and not the converter. I will just keep an eye on output voltages on the battery. Really chaps me that the original owner didn't take care or the actual systems on the trailer but kept the inside spotless. gallon of distilled water added to list of essentials.

It likely wasn't intentional, I'm still learning about all of the maintenance stuff that I'm *supposed* to be doing...

im sure it wasn't intentional and if half of the underbelly hadn't ripped off on my ride home with it I pry would have taken it more in stride... But after $300 in parts and having spent my entire weekend underneath it trying to wrangle corrugated cardboard into place, every little item I find is adding up... it did give me a chance to add a black water tank cleanout (tornado)... starting to think campers and boats are a lot alike (B.O.A.T- Break Out Another Thousand)
