2013 Thor Hurricane Converter problem

i have a 2013 Thor Hurricane 33g. Here are the symptoms:

12 volt system in coach is not being powered from shore power battery.
Converter has power going into it and no 12 volt DC coming out. 2 fuses on converter checked okay. Momentarily pulling fuse and resetting causes converter fan to come on for about 3 seconds then go out.

Fuse controlling DC lights on baseboard of bed distribution panel checks okay.

Any thoughts. We are thinking of pulling converter and taking to dealer to see if he will replace.

Sorry, I have posted this in the wrong forum. I am new and don't know my way around. Any help getting it placed in the right spot will be appreciated.

Hi, "Fried"!

I sent a request to Admin to help you move the question. Wish I could help otherwise, but I know nothing about Thor and even less about converters!

Good luck to you...

What voltage are you reading on the output when the converter is powered?
If it is working you will read around 13.2 -13.6 volts. If it is not working you will read your coach battery voltage, depending on the battery state of charge, you will read 11-12.9 volts.

Hi Fried,
I also have a 2013 Hurricane 33g, I'm wondering if you were able to find the problem. So far my RV is working fine. No problem (yet) and hoping nothing will come or show up. If you have question regarding on wiring, let me know that way i can check mine and let you know what's needed to be done.

BTW, it is at the dealers and it was working fine. Go figure. He wants me to take it back; but, I am holding out for a new converter.
