Okay, I've searched the forums for two days and I haven't found anything that answers my specific question.... So either my searching skills are bad or it's not there.
However I did find some interesting related threads, but they just confused me...
I took my 13' Scamp
out this weekend and I had to use the heater for the first time. Since the heater doesn't use the shore power that was available, it ended up draining my battery
quite a bit. So I've decide to install a converter. Specifically a Inteli-Power PD9245C. I've read all the threads for and against converters, but my mind is made up...
Well preparing for my purchase I located the Inteli-Power PD9245C installation manual however it was quite sparse. So if anyone out there has installed one of these from scratch, I have a couple of questions and would greatly appreciate any advice:
1. I'm going to over simplify this but here it goes.... Installation isn't as simple as just tapping into my main +/- 12V lines is it? I mean I know I will have to install an AC outlet to power the converter, but as far as connecting the 12V wires the installation manual I found looked like it was as easy as just tapping into my existing lines?
2. This converter brand has a charging wizard for the battery
.... Does that require a different set of 12Vwires going to the battery
? Or is everything done (powering of 12V appliances and recharging of the battery) through the one tap in?
3. Sorry for the newbie converter questions... Please don't hurt me! I know there's people out there that always take their work to the next level, but I just want the easiest, least expensive converter install I can get. So if I don't absolutely need to rewire the whole trailer and install multi gauge measuring devices and a new bank of batteries then I don't want to.
Thank you for your anticipated kindness!!!
