Converter question in 38CK

I have a friend with new Cedar Creek 38CK He is having trouble keeping residential refrigerator cold while driving.

I ll post a picture of the converter. It has a red button on it. It Has two positions. One says power on the other remote.

So my question should the button be in or out on the converter when driving ??

does he have the "remote" switch installed somewhere else in the unit?

That is what the button would be for. It allows manual on/off at the unit, and if installed, in "remote" position the remote mounted switch has control.

Converter question in 38CK

I thought the remote might be for allowing his truck to run the converter? The front of that converter says something about a remote - He hasn't installed anything. It came like that

I run down the road with power on. If you push the button to the other position then it is off. The only time you are providing power to the fridge is when it shows voltage on the display.

When on shore power I power mine off. So if he unplugs from shore power then when putting it on then it will show 118-122.

Mine reads volts so it usually is around 122 volts and slightly drops to 118 over the next few hours.

Just realized you stated converter and not inverter. Yes I am about 13.2 after unplugging from shore power and ready to go down the road. I have 4 - 6 volt batteries feeding the coach.
