For the last 8 months we have had to change the fuses in the back of our converter (2 30 amp)in our Adventurer at least 6 times, the batteries are fine as long as the fuses dont blow, they go dead when the fuses are blown. Our RV dealer cant find the problems. Has anyone had the same problem so I can help my dealer do their job.
Thanks for the help!

Do you have to remove the converter to replace the fuse? I had dead house batteries and found they were cooked dry and dead. New batteries now installed and the circut breaker for the converter was off. I could not reset the breaker for the longest time, finally after reseting breaker a bunch of times it "took" and now the converter works and the coach house batteries seem OK. Weird.

Your converter circut breaker OK? Should be in the area of the 110v breakers.

stevegd007--I don't have to remove the converter, but i do have to remove the drawer and hold a mirror to the back of the converter to see to remove and replace the fuses. Convertere is under the fridge in my rig. House batteries are fine-all the voltages are where they should be. I feel something is causing the fuses to blow-since this has happened 6 timex in 8 months. It seems noone can figure out what is causing this.

Just got off the phone w/ my dealer about the converter. Apparently the 'final' decision has been made on this and nothing will be done since no problem can be found. If it happens again I will have to start documenting what is on/off etc so my dealer can try and duplicate the situation. I'm still hoping someone here can shed some light to the situation
