Confused, I checked the breakers and found the 15 amp "GENERAL"breaker and 15amp gfi breaker tripped. I reset breakers one at a time and was startled by a loud poof and a large amount off smoke from the circuit board with the converter and cooling fan. Looks as if a capacitor ???blew up. Supposed to leave on a trip in a few days and need a quick replacement /repair in the sacramento,ca area. Any ideas?
When you stated, you plugged in the trailer this morning...what exactly did you plug into?
It almost sounds like you are plugged into a 240 volt outlet.
Mike has a good article on this, and much more info in the comments section there:
