1965 Univolt, no worky!

Greetings & Salutations,

After our month long, 4500 mile trip, our only problem was the Univolt. It didn't charge our battery for squat! So, I am looking into a new charger/converter for our 1965 26' Overlander with one deep cell marine battery, a 30 amp panel, and no TV's or PC's or Microwaves... (yet anyways).

I most recently looked at the IntelliPower PD9260C 60 amp, am I headed in the right direction? And is it as simple as the univolt is to install?

Thanks again and again...

Randy at Best Converter would be who I would call. He is 68overlander here on the forums. We got one of his converters, and it went in very easy (where it was located is another story, but the conversion itself was cake).

Thanks

I will give them/him a call. My Univolt is in a spacious spot near the water pump in the left rear, and I can access it from the bathroom via an acess panel in the cabinet...

That's good. Let him know you are from the forums. Ours was in a compartment in the curbside closet, under the bathtub.

I have a 1986 25' and my inverter is not charging and am considering just installing a standard auto battery charger. My question is what is the small gage black wire coming from the inverter. The red hot and white ground are obvious but need info on the small black.
