Check the battery connections. Also check for power from your converter when plugged in. From the symptoms it sounds like you have bad connections. Remove the connections from the battery and clean both the wire end connections as well as the terminals on the battery.
If it still will not charge, look for a blown or lose fuse.
All of the symptoms lead to bad connections and voltage drop.

Also check your fuses in the converter. I had the same problem once, and it was just a blown fuse.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..
