Trouble shooting converter 1999 Sea View

Does anyone out there have step by step procedure for trouble shooting my converter? The panel on says that it is a sealed product. I'll have to make a trip up to storage to get make and model, and will today. Just thought ther might be generic way to determine if it is the cause for it tripping any and all shore breakers.
Thanks in advance

Just unplug it and see if breakers trip.
Most RV batteries live a long and useful life, some are murdered.

I tried that and it still tripped the shore breaker. Does that necessarily rule out the converter as the culprit?

I see you still haven't solved your problem.

Question: if you plug into 30amp power--what happens?

like I said before, I haven't been able to plug into anything less than 30amp shorepower, trips circuit every time.

I installed 30amp breaker box on side of garage---problem solved.

I plugged into 30 Amp. still same problem. I think I may have a possible answer. Talked to a MH Mech. said like others here that AC units or unit is a good candidate for my problem. Rec. taking both AC's out of the circuit, because they are the only circuits that are grounded to the frame and therefore show a different continunity b/4 the inhouse breaker panel and after the panel. So, will try that in the next couple of days, and report back.
Thanks to all for the help.
