After all this discussion, I have yet to see that the actual voltage has been measured. Now check what the voltage is across the battery terminals. If you find less than 13 volts, while the trailer is plugged into AC power, your victory will be short-lived.

He ran his fluke meter through every fuse on the converter. Each 12v mini fuse was getting 13.6 volts I believe. Does it matter whether you're getting it at the fuse or battery terminals?

Power problems...

It could matter if a wire is broken or disconnected.....the voltage wouldn't be getting to the batteries in that case.

That could be your problem.
Most RV converters, (which convert 120VAC to 12VDC), are designed to be used WITH a battery, (or batteries)...NOT without.
Expecting ANYTHING to work correctly when not connected properly is expecting to much.
Connecting things correctly will probably correct your problem.

The only thing I can figure is that they had flipped the fuse on the day we had looked at it...
