Of course, our OEM batteries are c***, so it does not surprise me that it is working so hard to kep them topped off!

That is when I would notice mine running also, when turning on 2-3 lights for a while. I just noticed this week that it was running without anything being turned on and thought it was unsual Guess that is the way it should operate though, according to what most have posted. I just checked and my door-frame heater switch is turned off, and the inverter is not even running this morning. Guess it is resting up. Thanks, EE

The converter has a 2 stage fan and will run as need to keep everything cool. If you truly are load free it should cycle off in 12 to 24 hours max when starting with a depleted battery. As the battery voltage reaches the 13.2 vdc the current demand through the converter is very low and the fan is not needed.
If the fan is running then you have an unknown load or the batteries have a problem such as a bad cell preventing it from taking a full charge.

Thanks for the good info on the Converter. Is the stereo the only thing that runs on DC when I am on shore power? I can find nothing that is on, and the check battery indicater shows a full charge, however, I suppose it could not be accurate. I have check it frequently over the last 3-4 days and it does cycle on/off. Thanks, Eugene

Is it hot inside the trailer?
Anything above 80 and I'd expect it to run.

Apologize if we sound dumb - as I must say a lot of things this weekend we were able to refer back to remembering reading it on outbackers.com.
Thanks for any advice for novices..
