Sabre converter problem

I just took delivery of a brand new 2015 sabre 33 ckts and on the second day of being in my driveway plugged into shore power my lights were getting dim and the radio was no longer working. I searched and finally located the converter and much to my suprise it was laying on its side and had torn some duct work up. The fan will work for perhaps 5 seconds and shut down. I recharged the battery and will call the dealer to let him trouble shoot. Pretty disappointed

Sounds like it was not installed correctly. Just another example of poor workmanship in a RV. I'M surprised the dealer didn't catch that during the PDI.

This seems odd since in all the older models the converter is not separate from the fuse box as it is "part" of the fuse panel or rather "comes as an assembly"

I'm sure that mine is seprate also, but it's in storage so I can't look for it, but I will.
