First question- where should the converter/breaker be located? Was it part of the original heater?
Second question- since it appears I need a new converter/ breaker any suggestions on which to use? May potential for solar
Does your trailer have roof AC? If so, you probably have 30 amp service. The converter on our 1989 wide body is located forward in the floor cabinet on the street side. About the size of a shoe box. The 25' cord exits the trailer on the street side out of that cabinet. The shore power plug is larger than a 110v plug and won't fit in a household 110v outlet. It's triangular and sometimes is confused with a 220 v "crows foot". The female plug is usually marked "TT" which stands for travel trailer and this is what's on the pole at campgrounds that have 30 amp service. I hope you have a converter which is great! It converts the AC power coming from the camp ground shore power to DC power so you can run all your lights
without using your battery
power. The converter also recharges the battery
while you're connected to shore power. The converter would not have anything to do with the breaker or the heater. Happy camping.
