Hi,
What Fleetwood unit is it you have,Year and model if you know will help.
Sounds like the battery is dead.
The converter is what charges the batteries to run all the 12 volt systems in the coach and also run the 12 volt system when you are plugged into shore power.
Can you give me the make and model of the converter?Depending on the unit it will be located with the 110 volt breakers.
