I have a 78' Trillium
4500 with the factory power converter and I want to add a battery
to the system. I am not sure if it has ever had a battery
in the trailer or not...there is currently no hook up for one.
I know the factory converter has an option to run 120 or on battery
. The load on it will be very minimal. Basically only lights
at night (LED) and the odd USB charging task. The trailer has the factory gravity furnace
, 3 way fridge
and stove top so I assume there will be little to no power draw from the appliances since they will be on propane
most of the time.
Is it as easy as wiring in a battery off of the tow vehicle like in the 1300 wiring diagram? Will it charge if I am plugged in to shore power or only from the T.V?
Any insights would be helpful. I have spent the last few days searching the forums and I can't find a straight answer. I would like to keep things as original as possible in the trailer (keeping the factory converter).
