Why would my 120 converter not keep my batteries charged while plugged in?


If you are referring to a 12V DC - to -120V AC converter, then the answer is obvious. The converter makes the AC from the DC voltage provided by the batteries. You cannot charge a DC battery with an AC source. Additionally, even if you could, the resulting charge would be less than the draw taken from the battery (physics - loss from heat). Also, there wouldn't be enough power left over to do anything with.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
