univolt replacement

Allo,

I am the midle of refreshing the rear bathroom of the argosy"lynda", everything is going quite well, thow a bit longer than i had expected"still at it".......... while plugged into shore power"110volt", I unplugged the UNIVOLT to remove the roted flor, and the lights and radio lost power is this normal I thought when plugged to land power u did not need the univolt ??


And in the future"near" i would like to replace the univot to more modern system, what would be the proper replacement, my univot has the glass fuses inside the unit.



THANKS, merci




_____Ron

The Univolt takes 120v AC power and sends it to 120v outlets and also converts it to 12v DC power and sends it to your 12v system. That's a really simplified explanation from someone who isn't much of an electrical expert. When you disconnect your converter (univolt in this case) you disconnect the 12v system. I know there's a much better explanation out there - do a search for "univolt" and you'll get a LOT of information.

I got rid of my univolt and replaced it with an Intellipower 9245, as many on this forum have done. I re-used my glass fuse box, although others have replaced it with new automotive type blade fuses. Do a search and you'll find a lot of info.
