Fan below Breaker Panel

I just brought home a used 2019 Rockwood Mini Lite 2104S. When I plug into power, a fan comes on that's just below the breaker panel. When on Battery power, the fan does not run. Anyone know what this is. Thanks

It is the fan in the power converter. Plugged into 120 volts, it charges the batteries and needs cooling.

You have a 55A converter (AC to DC)
WHen on Shore Power it supplies the DC Dist Panel/Fuses with 12VDC Voltage AND maintains/charges battery

Cooling fan provides air flow across transformer...they get hot when operating
