They're all chargers these days, the difference is its in line like the alternator on your truck vs a changeover switch.

My 74 KIT had a manually switched converter with no battery charging capability I removed it from the system and wired the distribution panel directly in to the battery feed and the converter into the circuit coming from the batteries with a disconnect switch.

that is a bummer as the 7345 panel has a gen transfer built on the back as it was out of tt with gen kind of kinks plans to hard wire an inverter in place of the converter and have the transfer switch wired to shore power for the 110

Sorry, I completely misread your previous post! Yes, there are combination converter/inverter units that are also battery charges, but be ready to open your wallet .

Best Coverter has those as well, they just cost more.
