Where is my 1991 holiday rambler travel trailer converter

My trailer is 1991 Holiday Rambler Alumilite Free Spirit bumper pull 31 footer with front kitchen. Trailer has hall with a wardrobe on one side and small bathroom opposite the wardrobe, with a door into the small bathroom. That means you walk through hall to get to bedroom and you pass the wardrobe and bathroom as you go through the hall. The wardrobe and bathroom face each other in the hall. The fuses and breakers are under the wardrobe in the bottom cabinet. If I am on the floor looking into bottom cabinet of the wardrobe, I see the fuses and breakers. On the left side of the cabinet (the ''wall'' between wardrobe and living area) I see a small panel with screws that would allow me to open a small box on the other side of the wardrobe wall in the living room area, under the TV stand. To help clarify, I have to step out of hall into living room and get on floor and look under the TV stand to see a smaller box which is accessable only from the fuse box area in the bottom cabinet of the wardrobe. The main power cord enters the trailer from the other side of the living room, under the sofa. It is direct wired into a silver metal box on the floor which is inside a small wooden box visible from outside where cord goes into trailer. To see the outside of the wooden box that the power cord goes into, I have to go inside and look under sofa. I can't see how to get into the wooden box from under the sofa because the sofa is bolted into each side wall. I do not think the converter is in this box because the silver box is too small and I don't see anything else. There is another box right next to the one that holds the silver box, but that one may be related to the fresh water system under the sofa. I think the cord is just direct wired to the silver box and if it has a breaker, I don't see it. I though power cords had main breakers before sending power to the breakers/fuses near converter. All I am curious about now is where the converter is and as an after through...where the inverter is. I have no idea where to look for that. Thanks for reading all this. I have searched and read on the web for three months and still have no idea where the converter is. I do know that wires from fuse and breaker area runs into the box under the TV stand. There is no where else that I can find that could hold a converter but I don't understand why it is so hard to get into these boxes and hate to start tearing stuff out just to learn about my trailer. Any clue will be appreciated. I am not having trouble now but need this info to help me make my wiring diagram of the trailer. Again, thanks for allowing me to ramble about my Rambler, which I love because of the excellent floor plan and beautiful wood cabinetry. Hope I have some responses when I return home later. Thanks to everyone who reads this and tries to help if possible.

I had a similar problem on my 1995 Holliday Rambler Aluminalite 29 foot travel trailer with the similar layout of your trailer. My converter was only putting out 12.28 Volts DC. I fount the converter under the front of the trailer. (facing the front of the trailer, just right of center about 8" back)
There was a pannel with screws on the underbelly. I could hear the humm of the transformer. I removed the cover and found the red wire from the converter to a stud nut was loose. Tightened the nut and now I have 13.29 Volts DC.

That's quite a story my friend, and it deserves an answer. First of all, you probably don't have a 'converter'. A converter or 'rectifier makes DC voltage from AC volts. That's the job of your alternator, make DC for charging batteries. You probably do have an inverter, which makes AC volts from your batteries and feeds the recepticles and any 120 volts loads. You need to find your 'transfer switch' which switches your different power sources to power the trailer. All your electrical systems should be accessible and located in standard electrical enclosures. I'm not sure I understand your actual problem that you're experiencing, but I will, but I will be glad to answer your questions.

What size trailer tires does a 1988 Holiday Rambler have on it?

Your Holiday Rambler most likely has an LT35/85-16, which is the most common for campers, 5th wheels and toy haulers. However, what you need to look for is the info plate on the unit, showing the VIN, tire size and pressure for each tire and the GVRW for your unit. Look for the Load Range. Depending on the axles and weight, you most likely have Load Range E. If you are looking for replacement tires, you may want to consider an ST235/85-16E. The ST has a hard composition rubber so the life and mileage is much longer, besides usually being less expensive.

Just to give you an example from my personal trailer, the Goodyear LT235/85-16 Load Range G average cost is @ $340.00/ tire but the replacement ST235/85-16 Load Range G cost$185.00 each. Great warranty, longer life and much cheaper. I am a Full Time RV'er traveling all over the country so mind gets a lot of mileage. It's worth the switch.
