12v problem found

Fuses showed good. I posted a few pictures. This is not a fun job. The AC plug is plugged into the rear of the fuse panel and is a 120v20A plug. Modified a junction box to test this. I will put it back together after Thanksgiving and will post an update
Purchased a new converter and have it in a better location. I installed it and ran a test. Turned on a lot of lights, fans and everything with in reach that work off of 12V. Voltage is holding solid. I left the old converter in, to hard to reach the back screws. Found a suitable location for new converter. Now it is time to put it all back together. This has been a problem from the time I purchased the Montana. What a can of worms. Now time to fish
