Circuit Breaker won't stay on...

The circuit breaker with the inverter on it is off and won't remain on in our '88 Excella.
The 12 volt is now weak.
Nothing unusual plugged in.
Ideas?
Thanks!

I think you mean converter.
Disconnect (unplug the converter) then reset the breaker. If it holds, sounds like the converter is bad.
How old and what brand of converter?

It's worn out. A new converter is always a good idea. Eve a cheap Progressive beats the old factory pieces. It's the first thing I replace on a trailer. Never a good reason to keep one.

Same with breaker box circuit breakers. These things get old. Replace them all is best policy.
