gloran,

Thanks. I'm presuming that for whatever reason, AS changed the electrical system component locations. As I stated in an earlier post, my AC/DC distribution panel is located under the left side of the sink, which in 1990 was on the street side of the MH.
Your galley is on the curb side, I believe.

My house batteries are located under the step at the entrance door. Where are yours?

Safe travels,

FRank

Thanks, my thirty does have the carpeted panel, and found the two screws to take it off, they were buried in the carpet. Tv is plugged into the inverter in the same area.

gloran,

I guessed as much. That explains why your converter/charger is in the front of your coach.

Does anyone know if the Xantrex XADC converter/charger will fit in the space the Magnetek 7345 occupies? Dimensions are very close.


Thanks to all for their help and insight re: my charger/converter.

Frank,

I installed a Xantrex (2.0) last summer and while they are similar in size, the Xantrex needs much more free flow of air. I posted pics on here back in the fall. I love this system and all battery problems have been eliminated. Just make sure there's no restriction on air flow and use minimum of 2/0 cables and minimal length runs to batteries. I can send you a quick install sheet if you like to decide if you want to go this route.

Gunworks,

Thanks. I'd very much appreciate a copy of your install sheet. Email to fdavis03@earthlink/.net, please.

Safe travels,

FRank

Taxman, did you ever find out if the Parallax can be converted to a three stage charger?

I have a solar panel with a three stage charger, so I just let that keep the batteries charged. I don't plug in shore power while at home unless the panel has been snow covered for a long time or I want to cool down the refrigerator. But when at a RV campground, I would think the shore power there may be overcharging the batteries.

Gene,

The Magnatek cannot be converted, dadgummit!

On our trip to the Everglades, I checked the converter output -- steady 13.8 volts on shore power. Will buy/install a Xantrex three stage converter before we leave on our summer trip.

Safe Travels,

FRank
