You will want to go get a deep cycle battery. Also know as a group 24 battery. Or spend the extra and get two six volt golf cart battery's.

If you are just checking something see if you can find a used deep cycle battery. Try Craigslist or wreckers.

From what I have been told is the fan will always run because it is looking for a load. With no battery there is no load so it will keep the fan going because it is trying to charge and is basically overheating right now. If left long enough you could cause damage.

Best of luck.

Don't spend a lot on batteries since it's for a deer trailer.

I have a 1999 Coachmen Class A. It has the MagneTek 6300 Q series in it. My converter fan runs all the time too. Not really that loud though, more of a humming noise. I found if I turn off just the bedroom breaker on the breaker panel it's stops the fan from running. All the other breakers don't make the fan run?

That's what I get for posting with a low blood caffeine level.
