Is it the silver box under the curb site seat Or is that an inverter

All I know, is I plug into power and I have lights!

Most of our trailers have 12v DC lights and 120v AC outlets. The converter is the box (usually located under one of the dinette seats in later model trailers) that allows you to run your 12v lights on 120v AC, and also charges your battery. On most later-model trailers, you don't have a choice of whether or not to use it. When you plug in to 120v AC shore power, your converter does it's thing.

Donna I am like you, plug into power and I have lights.
If no electricity, I have 12 volt, but use sparingly as I have no idea how long it will last.
I have no idea if I have a converter or not. My battery is in the back under the seat but not where I can get at it to check things out. Does it take water? I have no idea and if it does, I couldn't get it out anyhow. The battery is in the back out of my reach!

Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
