where can I find the converter

Hello,

I own a 2022 Cruise Aire 31si and I am having some problems with my battery. When I entered the camper yesterday the power was completely out. I am not sure when the camper lost power from the pole, but the battery was completely empty. When I hooked the power back up from the pole and reset the GFIs the power came back on in the camper but the battery is no longer taking a charge. If I turn off the battery I cannot run the AC and there is no power to the fridge, when I turn the battery on the lights flicker and are very dim, the fridge runs but will not keep anything cold. Any thoughts as to what may be going on. I checked the fuses at the panel, are there more fuses I am unaware of? Any help is appreciated.

I learned this the hard way....remove the switch panel cover. There are inline fuses on some of the wires that run from the switches. Not sure this will help, but I went without awning lights for MONTHS because no one - not two separate RV techs, an electrician, & backyard mechanic - could figure out why the LED lights were not getting power yet the switch would light up red when turned on (indicating it was getting power). Took off the switch panel cover and the switches had inline fuses in the wires. One for the awning lights had blown!! Nothing in the manual, nothing on the web, nothing anywhere we could find referenced these fuses.

There may be others hidden somewhere!

Also - turn the CONV switch completely off, wait a few seconds, then turn it back on. This should reset the breaker.

Have you looked behind the breaker panel. That is where mine was, and where most of them are.
If you ran the battery completely dead, it will more than likely have to be replaced.

According to the model of your distribution center ==WFCO 8930/50 you have a deck mount converter. On my 5th wheel you need to remove a wall in the basement storage to access it. There are 2 40 amp fuses on the deck mount converter but they are for reverse polarity in case someone connects the battery backwards. The converter alone should light your lights. You can check the voltage at the battery to see if the converter is working. But does not look like it.

Inverter/Converter found behind fuse panel

Thanks Lloyd, I did find the inverter/converter behind the fuse panel. It is in a real tight space - checked the fuses and they are still good, not sure if there is an inline fuse I cannot see, but my battery is definitely not getting charged - very aggravating. I have a friend coming over today to see if we can figure it out.

If you have a volt/ohm meter, check at the battery, or at the converter to see if there is any juice (electricity) being put out.

That is a deck mount converter. There should be 2 40 amp fuses on it.

Thumbs up

Thanks again for your help. Just wanted to follow up - it was the converter. I replaced it - battery is now holding a charge and all is well. I am able to use my A/C again!
