PD 4655 not working, help please

I have a 2016 27FB, I just installed a Progressive Dynamic 4655 converter. It is not working. LED light on fuse board and remote not working. Home breaker and GFI trip with trailer plugged in at home. I followed Snowy’s post here with step by step photos. Which are excellent and the same model converter. I call Randy at Best Converter, he was driving on a trip and is supposed to get back to me. Hopefully. But I am leaving on a trip tomorrow. Any suggestions to trouble shoot? Thanks ! Arnold

Can you remove the cover and post a photo or two of the installation? Might be possible to spot something amiss that way.

If you are tripping shore power GFCI and breaker, then you have a short in your installation, possibly crimped a wire? Go back and check your install carefully to make sure that nothing is crushed under the metal box.

Did you connect the black, white, and green bundled wires on the new converter to the 120V source? On the new converter, these 120v wires come out from the opposite side of the case versus the old converter. This criss-crossing of the wires has tripped up more than a few installations.

Here is an example of what happens when the wires are reversed: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f449...ml#post1965524

Found out white/black and pair of white/black from ac to dc side were crossed. Now working. Thanks

If AC was connected to DC side it's a miracle something didn't blow. Maybe the reverse polarity fuse saved you. Glad you are back in operation.
