    Re: converter

    Sounds like the converter is not charging the battery. You need to unhook the battery and with a volt meter check the voltage coming to the battery off the cables. You should have 13.5-14 volts. Much less, the battery will not charge properly.

    Re: converter

    when my converter went bad, I disconnected battery and the converter was sending 8.5 volts to the battery. I then pulled all the 12 volt fuses to make sure something was not pulling my voltage down and it still read 8.5 volts. I ordered replacement converter and did the job myself. Made a lot of notes on the wiring first and the replacment fit the opening perfect. Hate to say this because of the two answers above but dueing the work my self save a whole lot of money. Took about an hour to due. good luck
