When I connect to a ac shore power does it automatically switch battery power off and then charge the battery ? Thanks
There are three different answers to that question depending on a device called a CONVERTER which may be part of your power distribution panel.
If the panel is a Magnetek6300 First I recommend an upgrade of the electronics to a Progressive Dnamics 4600 (Match last two digits of model number) and the answer is YES YES
IF you do not have a converter the answer is NO NO
And with most converters the answer is NO YES.
No battery power is not disconncted.. YES they are charged.
Why not disconnect: Well if the battery is disconnected,Unless you have a separate charger it can not be charged. The 6300 has two modules.. Neither of which is all that good.
