Your converter experience, is very rare.
Usually, when a converter decides to go, it just quits.
If you bought the trailer used, I would suggest that you have the AC system checked out to make sure a previous owner did not modify something.
The 12 volt
output from the converter, is all fused, therefore if there was a 12 volt
DC problem, a fuse would have blown.
Also, they do not have any particular limited shelf life.
