Customer Question
Bought a new WFCO...

Bought a new WFCO 8935 converter, and new 12 volt battery for 2006 puma palomino - thought everything was going fine, then after 24+ hours, the ac went off and lights dim can't figure out where to troubleshoot

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Led lights in trailer - am hooked up to electricity, so some outlets continue to work, but not led lights or ac

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Volt yourself? What have you tried so far?

I paid an electrician - but I'm not sure the converter even ran, it has a fan, and never sounded like it was running

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Cost? I'm in Texas just 5$?
