2017 aspen trail 2810bhs help electrical probs

The led lights started to flicker. And the fridge won't stay on. Lights up green then goes off. Does the same when not hooked to 30 amp. I'm on a camping trip and have a fridge full of food. Not sure what could be causing this?

Sounds like an intermittent outage in the 12 volt system. First check battery terminals. Clean, bright, tight. If nothing found, check any in-line circuit breaker (usually on vehicle tongue) and connections at converter. Make sure shore power is disconnected before you poke around converter connections. Poking, and wiggling wires will often find a bad electrical connection.

Can the number 10 fuse at the younger cause this? I pulled the fuse and it fell apart. Also the battery box was full of water

Very likely, even though that might just go to an electric tongue jack. The water in the battery box is also a sign of possible corrosion on the terminals. I'd disconnect them, wire brush them clean, reconnect, and cover with Vaseline. I hope this is all there is; I believe you're on to something!

That wasn't it. So after I disconect the battery and the 30 amp should i check all the connections in the fuse box/ converter?

Yes, as I said in my first post, I believe this is a 12Volt problem. Cleaning the battery is good stuff, always recommended. But if you don't find the problem there, then check the line from the battery to the converter. It might go through a junction box, or a circuit breaker on the tongue. Another possible place for corrosion. If not, then it's straight wire up and inside to the converter. From there, I would check connections and fuses. Will be off line for a while, others please feel free to chime in and help this guy!

After the rain stopped and things started to dry up a bit the problem stopped. The lights stopped flickering then the fridge started to stay on again. I take it in to the dealer on Tuesday since it's still under warranty I bought it in June. The dinette table leg supports on the floor has stripped screws so we have a wobbly table and a few other issues.
