Bob, good advice as an interim solution. We have been using this method for some 24 months on the road the past 4 years because I have been too cheap to replace the converter/charger. It works fine as a converter, the charging section is the problem for the batteries.
We have factory solar and AGM batteries since new so we never use the original converter/charger to charge our batteries, rely on solar. The AGM batteries are still in excellent shape.
