I have my new "Ample Power" charger installed in my coach accompanied with the "Ample Power" Smart Charger Manager. I installed this in the basement of my coach & am running a 120 VAC line to feed this new equipment. I should note that I have also installed a Xantrex Link 10 guage.
The charger seems to work GREAT, bringing the voltage up tp 14.85 volts to bring the batteries up to a 100% charged state, but my question is on the Magnetek converter\charger. The equipment I installed is a charger only, no converter. Will I hurt my batteries or electrical system by leaving the Magnetek gear powered up or is there a way to disable the charger in the Magnetek charger\converter? When plugged into shore power I would love not to be draining my batteries & when I throw the breaker I lose the converter as well as shutting off the charger. The voltage rate doesn't seem to be greater when I have the charger\converter running in conjuction with the "Ample Power" equipment... Here's a link to the equipment I have installed if this help any...
Thanks in advance,
