Overhead lights

2009 Thor Hurricane. We're having trouble with our overhead cabin lights. One day we came home and they were very dim, then they died completely. Not sure where to look for the problem. Batteries have water but aren't getting charged, outlets, tv and microwave are working, overhead lights are not. Sorry if this question has already been asked and answered but I havent been able to figure out how to ask a specific question in the Hurricane forum and this is my first question.

Your TV, outlets and microwave are 120Volt and are powered by shore power or your generator. Your overhead lights are 12Volt and powered by your battery or batteries, which for whatever reason is/are not being charged.

Charge the batteries using a stand alone battery charger. Check for a blow fuse in the converter, or there is a reasonable chance that the converter has died.

If you need a replacement I recommend Best Converters for the replacement, if you email them they will help you choose the best one for your application.
