Electrical Converter

Just purchased a new Aerolite 284BHSL. It's been in storage for a couple of months and just recently brought it home a plugged it into my 50 AMP service. Within a couple of days, the battery was boiling over. Is this a bad converter? Or something else. The battery is a new one (Interstate) that came with the unit. Thanks in advance.
PS: Does anybody know where the converter is located on this unit? Is it behind the circuit breaker panel or elsewhere? Thanks

How new is it? Just pulled it off the lot? I would think you could go to your dealer and have them replace it under warranty.

Thanks, That is precisely what I intend to do, but they will most likely replace it with the OEM converter that failed in the first place. Probably will ultimately upgrade to a Progressive Dynamics one later.

If it boiled the battery there is a converter issue. If it is a new trailer have the dealer replace it under warranty. If you want to upgrade to the PD, which would be my recommendation.

Round file that Interstate battery too! Get a real deep cycle battery instead of the wanna be Interstate.
