Many report, and I have duplicated that they often don't change into the correct charge mode, whether it be boost for a more rapid and complete charge, and float, which is your storage mode. If you leave it connected for storage, it needs to drop back the the storage mode (13.2 VDC). If it does not, it will shorten the life of your batteries significantly.

Breaker on 2018 converter keeps triping

New Classic 33(manufacture date Mar 08, 2018). Breaker on converter keeps triping when hooked up to shore power and batteries levels drop. Was in JC last week for warrany work and some troubleshooting was done but nothing definitive found. They replaced the 15 amp breaker incase it was weak. Since we left JC on 20 June, breaker has tripped 4 times. Any ideas?

Hi

What's going on in the trailer when the breaker trips?

Best guesses:

1) You have a load plugged in that is causing the problem.

2) There's a wire loose somewhere.

Both can be tracked down, number 1 is easier than number 2. Both require some further analysis.

Is the converter on it's own breaker or shared with something else?

Hi

According to the owners manual, the converter shares a circuit with the receptacles by the bed(s).
