CS4500 Converter Rob R 9-10-16  
I have a 2001 Palomino. It has a centurion cs4500 power converter / charger. Since the first outing this season, i noticed my interior lights dimming. All 110v appliances work properly as well as the AC. At the battery i was getting 12v. I checked fuses and circuit breakers. All seem to be ok. I hit it to seem if the fan became stuck and it overheated. I noticed the lights brighten and then was getting 13v at the battery. Any suggestions? if the battery is bad, will that effect the power converters operation?

Your converter has died.

The fan failed, it overheated and its still trying but it is done.

The Battery charge voltage should be in the high 13s call it 13.9 or even more @14.5 for some converters at initial plug in.

This will taper off to about 13.6 give or take after 1 to 12 hours depending on the converter.

A battery that has failed, usually with the stmptom of no water in onee or more cells will eventually harm your converter as will leaving your trailer plugged in with out a battery hooked up.

Any RV parts store can get you a replacement converter, yours is realitively rare so expect to have to order it.

Good Luck
