I have lost my fridge food and freezer stuff twice. Don't want that to happen again. Live in Michigan so I am in process of winterizing. thanks for any help anyone can provide. I do not intend to do the work myself but do not want to be taken advantage of. Thanks!
I'm pretty sure that you mean a CONverter, not an INverter.
You need to post the trailer model number since the converter locations vary wildly between models.
If you're plugged into shore power, get a multimeter and test the converter's output at the end of the battery cables.
If you're NOT plugged into shore power, the fridge/freezer and the parasitic power drains will deplete a battery in mere days.
Generally the CONverter is located behind the fuse/breaker panel.
Suggest that you Google "the 12 Volt Side of Life". It's a good primer on RV electrical systems.
