Electrical question on 2009 29BHBS

Hi Forum, I'm hoping for anyone's expertise with my electrical issue. My TT is parked in driveway hooked up to landline electric. Recently we developed this problem. None of the lights work, then suddenly they come on, then they fade like they are dimmed, then go off. Later, they will come on again as above, only to repeat the same dimming or just go out. What should I be checking for or testing. It is brand new this spring.

Well for anything electric, you need a voltmeter. Read you battery voltage, then unplug the trailer, turn on a light or two, and read voltage again. There shouldn't be much of a change. If there is, you have a battery problem. Sounds like the converter is charging and dropping out due to overload from a defective battery. First place I would check anyway. Hope this helps.

It sounds like your converter. Is your battery(s) dead? Sounds like it. Or maybe it has a shorted cell and is drawing enough power to trip out the converter on heat. Check the battery and then check the converter.

I forgot to post the final verdict on this converter issue. Yurns out the converter was faulty. It was under warranty and the dealer exchanged it out for a new one. All is great now.
