    hello. I just purchase an 2007 Starcraft RT 14’ When I turn on any power item or such as lights or fan the converter screams. Or is it the converter? Any ideas or help?

    sounds like the fan either has bearings going or has a wasp nest or something causing it to be out of balance. You might try some lubricate on it, if it quietens then the bearings are probably going.

    I second the fan causing the noise. I would try to get some oil on its bearing.

    Did you try it just on battery without AC?

    The only moving part in the convertor is the fan. Like others has asked/said you need to get some oil to the fan bearings

    The noise doesn't have to be from a moving part. There are electronic components that can oscillate. Does the fan run with no AC?
