Speaking of batteries, your RV battery is most likely depleted right now, as I explained in a previous post about your converter being fried and not able to recharge the battery.
As you are either awaiting repairs or a converter to be shipped, it is a good idea to recharge that battery. The longer you allow it to set in a discharged state (as it currently is now), the worse it is for the battery. You don't want to also ruin it and add more things to be replaced.
You can attach a battery charger to it (if you have one)... or remove the battery and take it to a battery store to have them recharge it for you. Many auto parts store that sell batteries will do this for you too.
One more caveat, to help out. If you do remove the battery, pay attention to which color cable goes where. Many RV's are wired with a black and white battery cable, in which the black wire goes to the positive and the white wire goes to the negative. It's more akin to the way a house is wired (wire color wise) than a automobile. It's too easy nowadays to just snap a pic of the setup with your cellphone, before removal, to aid in the reinstallation if you forget.
As you are a newer RV owner, may I also suggest when you get free time to peruse these links. It may help in your future experiences, and help in your understanding of your RV's electrical systems as well as the function of the converter. As I stated earlier, you are part of our group now, and we are going to help get you past all this, where you can really enjoy the camping experience. You have a great support group of friends here.
