As we feared, but kinda suspected.

You need to make sure the RV is unplugged from that receptacle pronto.

OK, the converter is pretty well gone. I have not seen one that didn't fail or soon thereafter when hooked up to 240 volts. Might as well start planning a replacement there.

No television, so no worries.

The microwave sometime can have a fuse that might save it. Some have been lucky, some have not.

I am concerned about the air conditioner. It's usually OK if it isn't turned on when connected to 240 volts, but you said you did....so that one is still up in the air. It could be OK, or fail later.

The fridge control board can also be messed up.

This stuff happens, even though I know you may be sick about it right now. Main thing is to get your power outlet wired correct immediately. here is a pdf link we keep here to show the "professionals" how it should be done:

We will help get you past this.

Bummer! I hate that you found out the hard way. It's surprising how many times that happens.

Found converter. All breakers appear to be ok. Model WF-8955PC is model number for replacement. Any suggests on where to purchase? Manufacturer manual? Any circuit beakers on it somewhere.

I haven't even camped in the trailer is the sad deal here......[IMG][/IMG]

The converter is most likely fried internally. That's what happens to them. You can purchase converters from Amazon, Camping World, your local RV dealer. etc. I think in the links I provided you earlier, there is some posts that tell you how to test the converter. If not, I'll post some more stuff later on that.

Sorry for your loss. You will be replacing several items. The FIRST thing on your replacement list should be a Progressive Industries Surge Protector. A VERY cheap investment considering what you'll be paying to replace your fried equipment. It will also protect you in the future when you're connecting in a campground from low voltage, incorrectly wired pedestals and/or lightning strikes.

Your FIRST investment should be to find a new electrician!
