Lost all power in Jayco 1998 Pop up

Hi everyone~
Have a question, we have been working on our camper everything has been great all lights electric working. Came out yesterday morning everything was dead. Checked all of the power cords for loose connections they are work. Could it be the converter that went bad and if so can we get the components to replace it at Radio Shack/ I have read about people doing this but not quite sure. Any input would be great. My husband is an electronics tech so it would be no problem with the soldering.

It is quite likely the converter has failed and yes it may be possible to fix it but it may well be a wise choice to replace it with a modern three stage power head. Progressive Dynamics makes a replacement unit and you hear few complaints concerning quality.
I am assuming you followed from where you do have power to where you do not with a VOM?
