Vital Signs for Power Converter

We bought an Intelli-Power PD9130 30 amp power converter two years ago for our 1969 GT. After fully charging the battery this Spring, I am getting no power to the AS. When I hook into AC everyting works fine. The battery tests out fine and none of the fuses are blown. Could the power converter be bad? Any thoughts on how I can check it? Thanks for any help on this. Dave

When you are not on shore power the converter does nothing. Power is routed to the trailer from the battery through the 12 volt distribution panel. I would check the cables from the battery. The connection to the frame of the trailer from the negative post would be a good place to start.

Thank you, Richard. You pointed me in the right direction. Problem ended up being faulty battery cable connectors. Thanks again, Dave
