RV power converter

So I have looked just about everywhere I can for my 2014 Sierra select 30IOK's power converter so I can attempt to replace it myself. Any suggestions? Places I might have over looked? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

It is usually part of your power distribution center. (breakers and fuses)
You typically have to remove to install the converter portion.

Thanks Kenny, I tried to look up his model but couldn't find anything on the converter.

Thanks Kenny, can you be a little more specific? As far as "Basement" and "backwall"

I apologize but I'm still learning this RV stuff and have been having trouble finding specific make/model info on my trailer.

If it's not in the basement as Kenny described, you may can check to see if it's on the bottom or side of your RV's electrical distribution panel as 5picker pointed out.

If you see air louvers on the side or bottom cover of the distribution panel cover, this can be an indication the converter is there. You will have to remove the cover as shown in this pic (converter on bottom)

Seems we should start a "seek and ye shall find" thread where everyone can post where the converter, BCC, water pump and icemaker shutoff valves are their specific model, pictures accepted. I am sure there are more...oh yes, the fuse for any convenience cigar lighter outlets, the park cable entrance and satellite if any. Maybe we should have a form.

This always happens before the season starts.

That would be very useful and I could add all my findings to minimize the amount of times questions like mine are asked.

Too many makes/models for that. We'll just keep being helpful and answer all members questions and threads on an as needed basis, and most members are fine with that. That's what our community is about. Helping one another and sharing the wisdom.

Scott, your off-topic post may be best suited for your own thread, since it's not relevant to this one. I can move it for you, if you want. Send me a PM.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

No thanks, you can leave it here, the OP thought it was relevant, as did I. If you think not then just delete it.

RV power converter

Open you Camp side basement door. The first compartment under the nose.
Left hand wall.
Open the middle section.
Behind you will find a mess of wires and sawdust. Near the back is a silver box.

You nailed it Kenny! Turns out it was just a bad fuse on the converter. Going to test it tomorrow, so fingers crossed. Thanks again to everyone Click image for larger version
