Lights not working but outlets do

I have a 2012 CROSSROADS RV HAMPTON 380FD. The lights are very dim in the camper and eventually will shut off. This also runs the temperature control. The outlets all work however. I replaced the battery and it worked until it died. I have a solar charger on the battery which helps some but doesnít last. Any ideas? TIA!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

You say your outlets work so you must be on shore power. The lights are 12 volts. First check the breaker for the converter. Then you need to check the converter output. If you installed a new battery and the lights worked for a while. Then it sure sounds like the problem is in the converter.

One more thing to check and it has happened to a few of us. When you replaced the battery did you hook it up correctly? If not the reverse polarity fuses may have blown they are 40 amp in most cases. Do you know if your converter is part of the power center or a deck mount/ by it self?
