All of a sudden my battery isn't giving me the limited lightes and power in my travel trailer. I replaced the battery, it was more than 3 years old. I still don't have the power in the trailer and I used to.

Any ideas?

When you replaced the battery, did it have the same (or higher) capacity (i.e ampere-hour or reserve capacity) as the original battery? Assuming that nothing has changed in your unit to increase the demand on the battery, this is the only question that comes to mind.

If the size of hte battery bank is not what you are questioning is it by chance to voltage? Check all cable connections to be sure they are clean and tight at battery, frame (for ground), converter and any circuit breakers inbetween.

As RV Wizard said, be sure to check (and clean) your ground connection to the frame.
I just had a similar problem, and it did the trick (thanks Dad!)
