I can't turn on more than 4 lights simultaneously.
If I turn on more than 4 of 12v
interior lights (10 watts each, i think), my Parallax converter (model #7355) starts spinning its loud fan. It's so annoying, and I can't relax in my trailer in the evening.
Airstream's brochure shows a beautiful interior illuminated with numerous marine-styled lights, but the converter is not designed to handle this kind of load.
In reality, when I have my Fantastic Fan turned on, I have to spend my evenings getting by with only 2 lights. Otherwise, the converter seems to overwork, and its radiator fan makes noise louder than the ceiling's Fantastic Fan.
I'm not trying to turn on every one of my lights, but I would like to at least be able to turn on 6 lights without hearing the converter.
Q: Are you folks in similar situation?
Q: Should I upgrade my converter? If so, which one? Mine is supposedly rated at 55 amps...
