RE: No 12v input from battery, 2004 Terry Trailer

Thanks for all of the advice/responses. The positive battery cable goes under the A-frame and immediately up, into the floor of the trailer. I traced it with a tracer and it is unbroken back to the power boards/center and converter. No inline fuse/junction/etc. Googled the manual for the WFCO 45 amp converter and viola! Found 2/30 amp fuses (specifically for reversed polarity) on the "back" of the unit. Access to the fuses was virtually impossible due to where/how it was mounted. Managed to dismount the unit enough to coax the fuses out. Visual and continuity tests indicated they are OK. Even cleaned the ground for the neg. battery cable. At this point I figure the (14 year old) converter is shot. Thanks to all who came to my aid. Wish it had resulted in a better (cheaper) outcome. Stay safe.

RE: No 12v input from battery, 2004 Terry Trailer

2oldman: The two 6v were in series, but one was inadvertently reversed. I assume that created a reverse polarity situation. Sorry, I don't know how to post a diagram. carringb: Wiring diagram shows a 40 amp fuse between the battery and converter but I can't find it. Believe me, I have looked and looked... Old-Biscuit: I agree. But, cant find anything like that. No 30 amp fuses on the DC Dist Fuse Panel; just 15s and 20s. I need to find the in-line fuse/breaker somehow. Thanks for all your comments and insights.

No 12v input from battery, 2004 Terry Trailer

I accindentally installed one of my two, 6v batteries backwards, creating a reverse polarity. Since then, the trailer's converter will not recognize 12 volt battery input. I read about the possibility of a separate, resettable breaker that is used to protect the converter in such a situation. I've looked high and low and cannot find one. I have a 2004, Fleetwood Terry 300BH trailer. The fan in the converter runs when plugged into A/C power, but won't recognize the (new) 12 volt house battery. Interesting, the 12v systems work when the trailer is plugged into the the tow vehicle. Any advice greatly appreciated.
