O...kay!

Looks like it's the converter, which probably has internal fuses and/or breakers of its own.

Hey, O.P.! If you post the make and model of the converter, maybe we can tell you exactly where to look for fuses etc...

Ok, I have a WFCO 8955 converter. I have one 7.5 amp blown fuse but all the breakers and the rest of the fuses ok? Should I replace the 2 40 amps? If still no power to 12v then is the converter shot?

I think replacing the blown fuse will likely solve the problem....you might buy a spare for "phase two", though. It could have just blown through some random mischance, but if it blows again immediately you likely have a problem somewhere in the wiring.

Keep us posted!

Longshot, but there is a "kill switch" on my converter. Needs to be pulled out to be on (shows a green light beside) and pushed in to be off. Stupid design, as is is just above the floor below the fridge, so easy to accidentally bump off with ones foot.

That 7.5A fuse isn't for the converter. You can see if the two 40A main fuses have continuity. If they do, they're good.
If the batt is D/C and your 12V pump is working, then you have 12V coming from somewhere.

Ok I guess what I would like to ask is if you all agree that I should replace the converter? If that's not it , I'm out 130 bucks?maybe I'll call campland and get their opinion too! I appreciate all the input I've gotten and most of you agree converter needs replaced.

The tech @ campland seemed to think battery. It was dead but they said still good. Not sure how they can boost charge a marine battery that quickly. So reconnected it but still nothing . Gonna test the voltage with a meter tomorrow. Not sure what else to do if this fails except to replace vonverter and see what happens. I'm exhausted.
