If I'm following the tread correctly, the converter is unly putting out 3.2V? Can you (or did you) check he output voltage at the converter and compare it to the 3.2V that you got at the battery connection wires?

It was but now it is putting out 13.5 volts. I don't know if something was loose in it or what. I pulled it out and moved it around this morning and when I got home it was at 13.5 volts.
One thing I did notice is sometime our gfi and converter breaker will trip so I tripped it and the lights got dim like before. The correct voltage came back in a few minutes after i cut the breaker back on.
I don't know what is going on. I will keep a watch on it for a few days.

Trace the POSITIVE battery lead. It should go to a circuit breaker, shortly behind the tongue. Check the connections on that breaker for clean and tight. 3.2 volts out of the converter is wrong. Also check the voltage on both sides (terminals).

My vote is still corroded terminals. If the grounds are good then the "hot" side is the most likely culprit like Windrider said. Sounds like the pulling and prodding you did might have momentarily made a better connection.
