After that it goes up through the top of the pin box towards the bed but must go in between the two and then head back to converter then comes through the floor behind converter

So, from the posts I assume you do not plan on removing the terminals and clean them. Just because there is power on the POST; does not mean power is getting to the wire.

There was a little of the stripped wire showing after the connecter so I actually could get meter in there to test

If you tested the output on both sides with this method then it has to be the connection at the converter. There is nothing else from that current limiter to the converter that I am aware of.

Here is a generic wiring diagram for a 30TS camper. Good Luck.

I am guessing the wire got cut off by the slide out in order to have 12 volts after limiter and nothing going into converter. I am going to dig back into this after work in a couple hours. Thanks for the suggestions guys.

I=V/R

I is the current, and if nothing is flowing, your voltage could be pretty much the same on either side of the connections even when resistance approaches infinity.

I had 800 milli ohms on cable between the converter and current limiter. Had to get caught in the slide. Replaced the wire and just ran next to gas lines on bottom of camper and everything works fine.
