2012 Windjammer electrical problem

New to the travel trailer community with my first purchase!!

Unfortunately, already experiencing my first dilemma LOL

Strange occurrence.....everything works in the unit when plugged in to external power. BUT, if I unplug power, several things(including the electric jack) do not work. If I immediately plug back in....same issue. Only a handful of things work. Now, if I let it sit for a few hours after I plug it in, everything is back to normal.
I replaced the battery with a brand new one, fully charged....didn't help.

I'm lost lol. It's strange that it works plugged in, but if you unplug and immediately plug back in...it takes hours for everything to work right again.

Anyone experience this of have any ideas??

Thank you in advance!!

Brice

Batt=new so that isn't the problem.

Is the problem new? I.e. Didn't do it before.

Did you check the kill switch?

Is there a circuit breaker in-line with the battery cable?

Symptoms point to bad battery or no batt connected.

The intermittent symptoms are characteristic of a converter without a battery.
