Shadow, THX for the posts! We just got back home after our month of travels and I'm going to 1st have the batteries dbl checked to see what their 'actual' condition is, then get into the dealer to have the systems checked. Seems like there has to be something that suddenly started drawing more amperage, fridge, short or maybe something in the WFCO.

I can say that everything worked fine for the last 2 weeks parked on shore power, no issues whatsoever. And while parked, I disconnected the batteries ... so no charge going into them from the WFCO ... and they were both right up there over 12v when we hitched up to leave.

I'll need to get the dealer to put a proper tester on them to see what kind of amperage is going in/out to trace the draw problem. But I think I will likely take the advice of many and replace that converter unit. Not a great price for quality. It's good to know I can do that without having to replace the entire fuse/power distribution box!

Does anyone have a suggested decent quality (but not outrageously priced) battery meter I could mount in the trailer in place of that lousy 4 light gauge on the unit's sensor panel? It would be nice to be able to see what amperage is going in/out of the battery bank and see at a glance what the current 'real' charge status is. I've seen a few that are priced in the $150-200 range and are more sophisticated than I need, more for solar systems and large battery banks.

I installed one of these very simple and accurate, just need to know what voltages mean, vs. idiot meter.
