Mine is a 2004 with the same converter.
A few things to check...
1] pull the cover (one tiny screw on the cover) and check for giant dust bunnies.
2] if you have a side dinette your converter location prevents good ventilation and you should put a vent in the front of the seat in which the converter is installed.
3] plug the trailer in, and check the fan to see if it is running.
it is common for the fan to fail or get plugged up with dust.
That will overheat the board and if you are lucky it will blow the glass "Little Fuse" at the bottom center.
look carefully at the board, there is at least one aluminum heatsink. If the heatsink has fallen off the board, it has overheated and the board must be replaced.
If you replace the fuse and the board works without the fan, you can replace just the fan. or if the board is burned up you can replace the board without all that disassembly.
The best way is to buy the whole unit and just use the parts (a lot less work! and a lot cheaper!) It is almost certainly a 20A.
PM me if you like, you never know what I may have in the loft of my shop.
Once fixed be sure and remember the extra vent!
Note to EVERYONE who owns a side dinette with the converter in the bench... Install the extra vent before you have the problem.
OH! there is a little red LED on the cover which must be unplugged when removing the cover. Is it lit when on shore power?
