Cool Converter???

I have a 2010 Salem Hemisphere 316TBRD and am experiencing electrical problems. Re-charged the battery and hooked back to 120 outlet. Have power to microwave and t.v. but nothing else in the trailer. Could this be the converter? If so, what steps do I need to do to fix it and where is the converter located? Thanks.

Assuming you checked and turned on the breakers, are there any gfi outlets that might be tripped?

Retrace your steps, you might have forgot to do something.

If your battery is fully charged you should have 12 volt lighting and or accessories. Regardless of converter.
check your inline fuse just passed your positive battery cable.

did you take the battery out to recharge it?
if so, you could have crossed the wires when reinstalling it and tripped the resettable inline circuit breaker. usually is tucked up in the tongue, close to the battery.

Missed the where is it question. Most likely, the converter is inside or close to the 110 VAC power center. What type of power center do you have, model number?

its in behind the pictured box and panel above. Mine is being replaced by the local RV dealer after the campground we were at weekend before last went 240v at 1130 at night taking my microwave and spot welding the door on the inside as well as blowing the cover off the converter.

make sure that you have a power surge protector. I'm most likely going to have to sue the campground since the investigator is stating its the power ulility's fault when in fact the campground had a bad wiring issue
