battery charging issue

A genuine NewBie to the site. Have a piece of land in the BC Fraser Canyon out of Hope BC. 2008 Outback Sydney 32BHDS. When I plug the battery charger into a 110 outlet it blows the breaker, I have changed out the converter to no avail. Brought it in the the dealer and paid $250 and told there was no problem. Soon as I parked it on lot and plugged in the breaker blew again. Any help/ideas? Damn inconvient as i have to use booster cable from tow vechile to trailer batterys to have any power.

Also I have 4 electric outlets that blow the breaker. Same issue with the dealer.

This problem is now 2 years old and has not ever been intemitent, it is continual.

many thanks

Dennis, Welcome to the forum. Is your shore power wired properly??? It sounds to as if the polarity is reversed or you have no ground. Your outlets are fed off a common GFIC and trip the breaker if polarity is reversed. Purchase a simple outlet tester and plug in to your shore power ... they are only a few dollars at any hardware store or home center. Hope this helps, Hank
