Default Problems with fuse to battery

Hello, I am new and was hoping someone could help point me in a direction to figure out what is going on with my fuse going to my battery. I keep blowing my fuse to my battery when I am dry camping and using my generator to charge the trailer. The fuse gets really hot to the touch. We use to be able to run a day or two then charge and run another day or two.
We can operate everything while the generator is on so it seems fine there, just the charging part seems to be having an issue. Also, the batteries are only about 3 years old. Thanks for any help.

I assume being hooked to shore power would give the same results.
Might check the voltage from the on board converter/charger to the battery while on the generator. It may be defective.
If you are not a DIYer get it to someone who can track it down.

Oh, and enjoy that KoolAid

Do you have electric brakes? If so, check to see if the pin is still attached to the trailer. If not, the brakes will continue drawing power locking it up, draining your batteries, and causing heat issues resulting in failed fuses.
Hope that helps.
