30 amp fuses pop

When I plug in with 110volt power the two 30 amp fuses pop. Looks like they are related to the 20 amp breaker for the converter. I have a 30 foot international 2013 with 50 amp.

I first plugged into 240 and that popped the 20 amp breaker and blow both 30 amp fuses. I then wired a new 110 volt 30 amp receptacle for the coach in my shop. I replaced the two 30 amp fuses and plugged it into the new receptacle and it only blows the 30 amp fuses. The 20 amp breaker does not trip

RV plugs are 120 volts! You are plugging into a welder or range box that's 220 volts. Those breaker are suppose to blow. You over loaded them.

Betting you blew the rectifier (your twelve volt charger/supply) when you plugged it into the 240... Nothing definite, but when you shove the 240 into the 120 input, nothing good happens.

Hoping you didn't have anything plugged into the 120 volt system. Nothing out there likes 120vAC shoved in on the neutral line. Wish I could be more positive here. Hope it works out different than what I'm saying...

Unplug the converter and see what happens. As long as the other 120 volt devices were not turned on. You may be OK.

Nothing was plugged in so I am good there. I will buy a new Power max pm4b-60 converter. This should solve the battery issues I have beefing reading about also.

If you plugged into 220 the converter should have blown, mine did. Had the garage wired by a well known licensed electrician, told them four times - this is NOT a 220 line. Well they wired it as such - blew the converter and smoke filled the trailer. $1,240.00 later they had purchased me a new converter, new blue ray and paid my mileage to the dealer in addtion

Similar problem but less severe consequences for me. New custom home in which I requested a 110 volt 30 amp "RV" outlet in the garage. Of course the electricians wired it as 220. First time I plugged in my Bambi II it blew the Univolt but it was planned to be replaced anyway. No damage to anything else.
