    I bought a used tent trailer for the kids to use.
    I noticed the battery had the white on the positive terminal but when I look at the back of the converter it says it is the normal negative post for the white wire.
    I checked the glass fuse inside the converter and it is still good.'
    When I am plugged in there is power to the wall plugs and when I check the fuses there is power to them. The problem is there is no power to either the ceiling lights or the furnace.
    Can it be anything else other than the converter? Did he 'poach it?
    Thanks, carlitguy

    If the battery is charged the 12v lights and furnace should work. look for a fuse after the pos battery post. Start at the battery and work forward with a VOM or 12v test light.
