Our daughter had the same issue with her 2015 Sunset Trail. That's the converter running. It is caused by using a certain amount of power and it needs to charge the battery continuously.

The way to make it stop is to use less power. You can turn off a bunch of lights, or you could do like our daughter did and changed the light bulbs to LED ones which use a lot less power.

The fan should also slow down and make less noise as the battery gets closer to a full charge.

If there isn't a big current draw, (DC) shouldn't it also stop when the battery is charged?
I know mine does.

Not sure Lloyd. I know mine would go silent as it reached full charge but not sure if it stopped. Never looked at the converter that close. Now that I went to LED, I very seldom even hear it except if it has been discharged from sitting without power for a few days.

Fan should not run unless there is a need to cool converter. Do you have something plugged into your 12v plug? Laptop or chargers or 12v/110 converter?

I noticed ours runs alot. Also noticed when I turn on lights (like the ceiling ones all on a single switch), you can here fan increase.

our cruiser 5th wheel did the same thing until I changed all the lights to led bulbs.
I bought them on ebay from China. They are the little square flat panel bulbs with 48 Leds
Only ran about 30.00 for all of them. It also eliminated a lot of heat that was produced by the regular bulbs.
