I have been at a campground for 2 days with my TT connected to shore power. When we arrived the built in gage was showing full charge on the batteries and tonight it is down to about 1/2. I’m wondering if this is normal.

Nope! Converter should be keeping battery(s) full.

Did you flip the breaker on at the power pedestal?

Power is on at the pedestal (green light on my surge protector).

That does sound like the converter isn't charging the battery.

I asked him to do one thing and he didn't do any of them.

Found the problem. I had a blown fuse. Not sure what would have caused that. Someone must be watching over me.....I just picked up spare fuses yesterday.

If you have an RV you should have a decent multimeter. It will tell yo what is going on.
