2006 Fema Fleetwood Travel Trailer Power Converter

by Darryl

Question: I have a 2006 fema fleetwood travel trailer. When I first bought it, no problems. Now the 12v lights go out, stay out for 5 to 15 minutes, then come on again. This is random.

Any ideas on what this is? There are battery wires behind the propane tanks, but no battery.
thanks.



Robbie: You're using your 12V system relying directly off the converter to get power. It sound to me like the transformer in your converter is getting hot and tripping off. I think you're going to find you will have to replace the converter. But I would try hooking up a battery back on the front as it should be all the time. RV converters are designed to have a battery in the system. There are some Park Model Converters designed to use without a battery but there are very few of these systems out there.

Hope this helps you.
Robbie
