Are the intelligent converters considered the 3 stage converters? And the Univolt is the Inverter?
I cannot thank you enough!!!

A "converter" is the gadget that takes in 120 volt alternating current and puts out 12 volt (yeah, more or less, I know) direct current to charge your coach battery. An "inverter" does just the opposite - it takes in 12 volts direct current and puts out 120 volts alternating current so you can run the blender.

And yes, the "intelligent" converters are three-stage. Check out this page for more than you ever wanted to know about converters.
