I'm considering ditching the RV power converter in my 1978 boler
. The catalyst for this is I have to pull it out anyways to fit my new Suburban NT16seq furnace
. (I'm super stoked. Never had heat before)I could move it and do all the work on the cabinets etc to make it work but I'm wondering why I should bother.
Its still on the original unit from 1978 mounted with a faceplate on the cabinet front. It doesn't seem to charge the batteries when I'm on shore power but it does run the 12 volts stuff. All my LED lights
flicker when on shore power. Other than that I have a single 120 volt outlet and my 3 way fridge
plugs into 120 as well. I do my charging via solar panel
and charge controller. I haven't charged my batteries other than solar
for years. 90% of my camping is boondock.
Here is what I'm thinking. Someone please let me know if I'm being stupid here or missing something.
Remove power converter and run 12 volt purely from battery
Wire 120 volt shore power outlet to a single 15 amp breaker then 1 plug for the fridge
and 1 plug for my wife's hair iron or whatever.
Assuming that all works I could add a new converter with a proper charge controller later if I needed it.
