Battery charger Michael Wilson 7-25-16  
I think that I may have lost the message that I just typed.
I have a 1999 Prowler LS 27 5J.
Connected to AC power and the charger wasn't charging. Had to use an external charger so that the refrigerator, Heater and A/C would operate.
Also, where do I find the unit so as to make a visual inspection and get parts information?

Not even Fleetwood could tell us back in 99

You have a generic "deck mount" (also by the year you have one built by a bankrupt company) 45 or 55 amp converter. Parralax, WFCO American, all make direct bolt in replacements.

We have two main possibilities.

1st In the front compartment the rear wall of the pass through compartment should be a removable rear wall panel. Inside there.

2nd Many Fleetwood products have the converter mounted near the fuse panel. Here is the kicker, it is usually mounted in a void space, You will need to remove an screwed in access panel, maybe at the bottom of a closet, under the fridge, under a drawer etc.

Inside that void space the converter will be mounted to the roof or wall and will be as far to the back as possible. It may be mounted so that is too far away to be worked on. If it is and proves to be bad we cut the wires and mount the replacement at the front of the space.

Good Luck
