This morning when we unhooked the new battery was only at 12.2 volts -- it should have been 12.6 volts. I suspect that the trailer’s converter is not charging the battery. We headed for Canada anyway because there is no place to get our converter checked out for hundreds of miles. We knew that Banff National Park had full hookups. We went by Columbia Lake which is the source of the Columbia River which empties into the Pcific Ocean at Astoria, Oregon. We made it as far as Dry Gulch Provincial Park in British Columbia just before the entrance to Kootenay National Park. We ran the generator until we went to bed and then turned off the refrigerator to keep the battery from being depleted.
