    On my old coachmen the converter was placed behind a removable panel in the bedroom. It was sitting between the panel and the shower on the floor. In the coach that I have now it is located under the Refer. Good luck.

    Also, WELCOME!

    Hi,
    I don't know if this will help...
    when you are plugged into shore power, your battery charger should be charging your batteries..... you should be able the "hear" a hum or maybe a fan running :eek: ... also try turning on all the DC load, to make the charger work more.. and maybe more noise ... hope this will help
    Good luck

    Great idea! Saves money, saves the environment, and if you have one in your player while the other one is charging you will always have a fresh battery.

    Just curious, why are you looking for it. I have owned six motorhomes, they are built into the system. They all worked so I didnt worry about them. I could hear the humming, they are useuly incorporated into the converter/inverter system.. tks, DanO

    I FOUND IT

    IT was behind a hatch on the outside! the only panel that had to be opened with two screws on th back

    Then it opens just like a hatch....

    I wanted to find it because my batterys were not charging well.
    Now I found it ......
    I did wat somebody suggested looked for the humming sound which was quit difficult but I located it anyway.

    The charger/ converter is 50 amps and is of a german make because the camper is made for european market everything is 220 volt The mark is CALUIRA LG850A It is working perfect so It must be the batterys that are gone

    anyway problem solved

    Thanks max
