Control Center keeps blowing a fuse

New Boondocker converter. I'm getting 14V-ish to the Central Control which Randy at Best Converter said was normal for the first 15 minutes or so. That number was measured at the red and white wires on the Central Control circuit board. Also getting the same to the stereo which I think is on the same circuit.

I don't know what else, or where else to check. Does anybody rebuild these things? Ideas? That Central Control runs everything. Thanks.

I think I found the problem. There is a rectifier diode (I think that's what it's called) just after the fuse on the circuit board. It was cracked in half. I got the Control Center in the bright sun and I could see a dark line going across. I pushed on it with a screwdriver and could see it was cracked.

Nope. Didn't fix my problem.
