Disregard my prior post...one of the breakers was tripped and converter had no juice.

On second thought, my trailer dropped to 7 volts within an hour when the breaker was tripped. I had interior and exterior lights on, as well as the furnace running. Should the furnace deplete the batteries that quickly?

Not sure what is meant by battery status? Once the breaker was reset, voltage went back up and lights were no longer dim.

How old is the battery? Have you removed the battery and had it tested?

Agree....The batteries need to be removed, charged, load tested and checked for a shorted cell.(hydrometer or smart charger)
If they were discharged below 12.2v over 4 years they may need replacement.

Batteries are about 4 years old. Will pull them this weekend and test them.
