electrical question

Thanks to all for the replies in reference to the location of my transfer switch. Found it and replaced it. My question is this. I just recently purchased a 1993 fleetwood bounder and when plugged into shore power do I need to keep my auxiliary batteries on. Also does my converter need to be plugged in when hooked up to shore power. I no these are basic things that I should no, but im trying to learn it all quickly.
thanks for all the help
Jay

I will say this, on a 1993.. (Even on newer ones)

Converters come in basically 2 flavors, Single stage like the Magnetek 6300 or Parallex 7300 (WITHOUT THE T SUFFEX) and multi stage like the 7300T or better yet the Progressive Dynamics 9200

Note the Progressive dynamics 9100 WITHOUT THE OPTIONAL CHARGE WIZARD is a single stage, with it it's a 9200.


Single stage converters leaving it plugged in with batteries connected all the time might not be the best idea.. Multi stage (epicaly 3 stage smart units like the 9200 and a very long list of others) it is a very good idea.
