Good Morning

I need to remove my batteries to do some work on the tray. Can I leave ac power on and use the interior lights, fixtures etc without damaging anything? I have the small 400 w inverter with a totally seperate charger/converter. I'm concerned about damaging the charger/converter or the inverter or the bird etc.

Thanks

Jack

Before you disconnect your batts shut off batt switch over door , remove + cable from batt and tape end. Than plug in power cable. You should be ok to do work on tray.
Some people work on batts without shutting off switch and their slides would operate bad if they are locked.

Thanks 007 for the reply. I hadn't even thought of tapeing up the positive battery cable, but that sure makes sense if the charger/converter is going to be on. How will the inverter react to the situation of no batteries installed? Will I still have AC power to the outlets the inverter normally supplies?

Thanks Again

Jack

Converter will not care if connected to bat or not. TAPE the bare battery cable COMPLETELY like 007 said as it will be LIVE with the converter on. I run this way a lot during storage. Converter will supply all 12v to lights and the line will power 120v outlets not the inverter. You are good to go.
