What are issues when converter going out?

I changed some wires around in the master breaker box. The lights on the ceiling fan where super bright... I knew that wasn't good? I fried my TV and Microwave. The carbon monoxide / propane sensor started beeping and flashing
Code:
 Green / Red
, said low voltage. The battery was drained. I bought new battery Tuesday night / Wed evening sensor started beeping again. Battery drained..... Could it be the converter is fried also?

What do you mean you changed some wires around in the main breaker box? What breaker box? One in the RV or your house?


The symptoms you describe are usually associated with applying 240 volts to the RV or leg. That fries the television, microwave and converter.


More details needed on what all you have done electrically. Please don't omit anything, as it can be relevant.


This thread may help:


No Lights or 12V power

Have you corrected, what was done. We don't know the extent of damage, or really anything as vague as the details here are.

I would just suggest getting maybe a mobile RV tech, and see if they can get it all figured out

Since you plugged into the outlet at your shop and you don't say whether you have 30A or 50A panel in your RV. Hopefully you did not plug into a 240V service or god forbid 480V.

Now before anyone says 480v is not possible, I've seen some ancient 480v wiring done by some amateurs. And No, it wasn't me that did the wiring.
