Montana Power Question
Good day Montana Owners - My neighbor here in Yuma has a 2014 40 foot Montana 5ther. He had a strange electrical problem. Being an Electronics Engineer, I told him that I would take a look at it.
When connected to shore power, all 12 volt systems worked OK. However, when not connected to shore power, no 12 volt systems would work.
1. Battery is 1 month old - checked with VOM showing 12.5 volt OK
2. Checked "Salesman Switch" for power continuity through it - OK
Problem was resolved when I checked the four reverse battery fuses and installing them again. The "wiping action" of removing and then re-installing them must have provided the electrical path needed.
Now My Question:
In the power panel, along with the panel fuses, I noticed a switching power supply next to them (has two muffin fan to heat).
Q1: Is this the AC/DC inverter?
Q2: Does this provide the charging for the battery?
Q3: If this is part of the battery charging circuit, is it a standard battery charger or a 3 Level battery charger?
Best Regards & Thanks
