|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.
