I put a battery tester on the battery to check it out and it shows 100% - so I assume the battery is ok. When I have the trailer hooked up to 110V, all electrical works. Could this be a power converter issue? Just doesn't seem like it would since the trailer is only 18 months old.
Also, how hard is to hook up a second battery in parallel since I have room on the frame to mount a second battery? Do I need a different power converter to handle two batteries? Thanks in advance for your feedback.
Don't know about your no 12 volt issue. Could be a disconnect switch.
As far a 2 batteries, I always use 2 because we rarely stay at full hook ups. Age difference isn't necessarily a problem as long as both are holding a charge. Check them individually with at full charge and no load with a digital Volt meter. Look for dropping voltage drain. Hold probes on the terminal for a few minutes.
Very easy to mount 2 batteries. Use 6 garage wire and appropriate ring terminals. I always solder them. Then there is a solid connection that won't come loose.
