Question Electrical issues - 1999 Roadtrek Popular

We just bought a 1999 Roadtrek 200 Popular (Chevy) and have some electrical issues. Can anyone offer information or ideas on what's wrong?

Inside the converter box, one of the breakers keeps shutting off. It is labeled "Battery charger - driver rear dinette". Also, on the top side of the (metal) converter box, the top left side is warmer than it should be.

Also, we don't have paperwork that tells us what should run from each power source. We have a generator, deep cell battery, and AC power sources. Is something wrong if different power sources power different things? (Also, we have an air conditioner).

Thank you!

Basically the converter converts 110 volts into 12 volts to run all things powered by 12 volts on the coach side of things and it also has a built battery charger to charge your battery while you are plugged in or running the generator. The converter itself does get hot and should need ventilation but that should already been done at the factory. How hot is too hot ? You need to let a RV tech check it out . Something is amiss with the breaker tripping and it will have to be looked at. Hope this helps !
