RE: Would this be a power converter issue??

Thank you for the responses and ideas. Update; I found the troubleshooting guide for my power converter (Inteli-power 9260C) and ran through the various steps - certainly seems to be a bad converter (I've got good AC into the converter, no DC coming out). Also found the remains of a lizard half crawling out of the vent grates at the back of the unit - not saying it's his fault but I'm sure he didn't help. I've got one on the way, in the meantime I also replaced the battery, because I have no idea how old it is and it was only showing 10'ish volts. I'm sure it was due in part because it wasn't getting properly charged...but for peace of mind I got a new battery. That will hold me for a couple days until the new converter gets here. I'll use my AC system for lamps, etc. til then. FWIW - I my thermostats are DC, and I think that was spot on. The draw from the lights was sucking so much power that the thermostats weren't getting adequate juice and were shutting off the air conditioners. Once again, thanks everyone for the info. Cheers

Would this be a power converter issue??

Hi everyone, first post so thanks in advance. I've actually been living full time in my 5th wheel for a year (2007 Summit Ridge) and thankfully had minimal issues. I can work through most things by trial and error, except electrical gremlins - I don't have a knack for that. Anyway, here's whats going on; -RV doesn't move, hasn't moved for 2 years. -Been plugged into reliable shore power the whole time. Suddenly my interior overhead lights have become extremely dim, and they are on a slider/dimmer. -If my a/c is on and I try to turn my interior lights on and slide them from dim to bright, the a/c shuts off as though it's not getting enough juice. -As mentioned the lights have suddenly become noticeable dim as though there is a lack of power - but the interior lights are DC while the air conditioner is AC....how are they connected and interfering with each other? -Not sure where to start and I don't want to lose a/c in Florida right now, nor do I want to fork out tons of money to have someone find a simple fix. Any ideas are appreciated.
