My 73 Prowler doesn't have a power converter. I just picked up a Phillips PC-301-m-2 off of Craigslist. I found a manual for it online, and I think it's not set up as a charger.
I got it with the thought that I'd use it to charge up the battery at home for when we go boondocking, but it occured to me tonight that there's nothing to shut it off when the battery is all full. I don't want to boil the battery over or worse.
Any options? I'm thinking to get a separate battery charger, and set up the converter with a switch so that the 12v in the trailer will run off of one or the other. I'd like to be able to use just the converter, but I'm paranoid. Is there something I could put between it and the battery to shut off when full? Is something like a Charge Wizard
good for that?
I'm also trying to keep costs down to a minimum.
