Power converter stopped charging battery

We just returned from a great weekend of camping and noticed the lights in the camper were very dim this morning. All the 110 outlets are fine. I checked the fuse on the charger part of the converter and it was good. The converter is an Elixer Industries ELX-45. I have checked online rv supply stores and have found that Elixir no longer makes these converters. Any suggestions on replacement converters?

Update: I removed the converter unit and took it to a local RV dealer to be tested. When they hooked it up they found a capacitor that was loose. I soldered the capacitor and put it back together, IT WORKS !!!

Thanks folks for your help.
