Converter question

Should my convertor be warm all the time and should I hear the fan running all the time when hooked to shore power? As the unit sits in my driveway currently, the convertor is not warm and the fan is not running. It has been plugged in to AC for weeks. So is this because the batteries are fully charged and the convertor is not working hard? Just looking for an indication that the convertor is actually not broken...I read people's posts talking about a "green light" in the convertor that illuminates to indicate convertor operation but I can't see any light on mine???

The cooling fan on the converter will run if the 12V DC load in the camper requires it. If you have just a few lights, the converter load isn't sufficient to require the cooling fam. Add more 12V load, the cooling fan will start running.
