Converter Location on 2013 Cardinal 3450RL

Does anyone know the location of the 70 Amp Converter in the 2013 3450RL?

Thanks

Butch

Should be (probably not) in the 12vdc fuse panel/120vac breaker box insert. Usually it hides in the lower right part. You should (may see) a green light either steady, fast flashing or slow flashing.

What does the fast flashing mean?

Flash speed shows how many amps are being returned to the battery and being used by the 12 vdc system. Fast is max charge, slow is med charge, steady is trickle/maintenance charge. There is a small black button which can change the charge rate. It will switch back to auto when needed.

Thanks. I have to keep an eye on it. It always seems to be fast flashing. Looks like I'll have to break the male rule and look at the owners manual.

The Converter should be under the steps. In the pass through storage bay, the carpeted wall to the rear of the trailer is held in with 4 screws. If you remove this wall you should be able to access the power converter.

After reading the manual, fast flashing means the battery is 50% to 90% charged and slow flashing means it's below 50%. Little different.
