Then a few things.

1 fuse protection on converter is blown.
2 circuit breaker to battery is tripped or bad.
3 converter is smoked.


If it's a wfco converter there's a trouble shooting guide in the "files" section on upper left hand of frf web page in the green.
Select the file with your model number then trouble shoot away.

If the converter checks out but the battery is losing voltage while on shorepower, I only thing I can think of is a short to ground somewhere on the 12V side.

This sounds like the frame fuse from the battery to the converter is open.

Find the fuse.
Press the tiny button on the side and see if it clicks in.
If so everything should work properly again.

Everything powered by pigtail is working, but power from the battery is not getting to or from the converter.

Thank you everyone. I am back in action! The reset under the camper was the answer. All your suggestions lead me to finding the answer. Thanks again and have a Merry Christmas!
