Unhappy Electrical Problems

I recently had our refrigerator cooling unit replaced now I have electrical problems. Purchased a new battery; now the lights are dim, the slides will not retract, nor will the refrigerator work on butane. the new battery drained overnight; what could be the problem. I have a 1970 Country Road Paradise. If anyone can tell me what is wrong I would appreciate it. You may send e-mail to FloodJrlBmnt@aol.com. I want to leave and go, but this problem is preventing me from doing so. HELP!!!

Is the battery connected correctly??? If you reverse poles it could cause major problems.

Also check the 40 amp fuse in the converter

On a rig that old, I would suspect the converter has died. You might have to have an electrical expert check the converter output.

Where is the converter on a Cross Road Paradise Pointe 2007? I've looked, but cannot find the one that looks like the one that I was sold.

This is the actions I've taken, but still cannot locate the converter. "I look behind the panel, but there is nothing. I pull the cover off under the refrigerator and I see a large aluminum box, but it does not look like the one I was provided. I am truly baffled." Send your answer to FloodJrlBmnt@aol.com. Thank you to all that assist.

Is there a way to manually retract the slides? Since my electrical system cannot operate them I want to retract them so I can move this rig to a service center??????

On my 05 PP it is on the right storage compartment. Look in the upper left and it is a gray box with a fan. The fuse is located on the bottom of the converter. If the battery is draining over night it sure sounds like there is short someplace in the system as the battery should last a couple of days.
