I own a 1984 Holiday Rambler, Presidential Model. It is a 5th wheel travel trailer.
I recently started looking for my Converter Box.

I managed to locate to find my Fuse box, and breaker box.
Both of these boxes are under the kitchen sink.

Now i need to find my converter.
Does anyone have any ideas on where it might be?
I've looked just about everywhere.

The breaker box is a 'Bryant Elec. Co.'
and the fuse panel is model # FB 5-1 'B-W Manufacturing in Kokomo Indiana'
There is no converter anywhere under the sink. I reached behind the 2 boxes and its all wires, no converter.
I even held a mirror to look behind them and its all wires like i felt.
Any suggestions?
Does Holiday Rambler have a usual location they put their 12V converters in 5th wheel RV's ?

Thanks for your help. -Justin

I checked there but its nowhere to be seen.
the only thing under my sink is 2 things.
A 12v fuse panel and an A/C 'Bryant' breaker box.
I've bought converters before and know what they look like.
The converter is definitely not built in to the fuse panel or breaker box. The Red & white wires leave the 12v fuse panel and go under the floor through a hole. Next place i see the wires are by the battery in the front of the RV. Any help is appreciated.

My old HR had two storage boxes in the forward end of the main body, under the master, facing the tailgate of the TV.
On my HR 5th wheel, the converter was inside the port side front storage box, on a shelf up in the top.

If its not there, look for a small fan somewhere. Most converters have a small cooling fan that gives away their location behind a wall or panel.

Good luck

Hmm.. Sorry... I figured it would be at the point where the power cord comes into the RV.. I am sure that you have checked everywhere though.. Not a compartment outside maybe where the power cord gets coiled up and put away... ??? Good luck with it!

Me & my dad finally found the converter today.
It was 5 feet from the batteries in the front of the camper.
It was on the underside of the camper right in the middle, inside a trap door,after removing 4 phillips screws, a rectangular shaped metal door dropped down revealing the converter the underside.
Thanks to everyone who helped.

I have an "equipment area," for lack of a better term, under the bathroom, directly aft of the basement storage area and accessible from there. The furnace, water heater, water pump are also in there.

It seems to me that if when you are plugged into shore power if you turn on all the lights you should be able to hear a hum someplace.
