Who's inverter are you using? Does it charge the coach battery as well as run the 12v system?
Thanks for the post. I am using a computer power supply that I modified for use as a converter. BTW Toy pusher is right about the terminology. It is no big deal I knew what you meant, but the two terms are not technically interchangable nor are the functions. I am not planning on using any inverter. By this I mean I will not be converting any DC back to AC. I will have AC outlets, these will be powered only by shore power. So I will have to have an AC hook up when I camp. Or if I am "dry camping" I will only have DC powered by my 12 volt battery system.
I have a web site that show what I did to modify a powersupply for my use. I don't pretent to be an expert. I am not an electrician, and there may be a better way to do what I have done. . . But here is the link to see how I did what works for me....
FYI this home buid coverter only produces 6 amps in 12 volts. As far as converters goes this is limited. But I am planning on only using my converter to power limited use of cabin lights which will have less than 6 amps load. This converter cannot power the entire DC system if every loan was turned on at the same time. But it works for me.
I hope this helps....
Thanks for the question.
