Hello. On my 88 Excella the converter is pluged into 120AC from a receptical under the gaucho. That receptical is on a breaker with other recepticals so if I shut off the breaker it will kill the converter but also other things. I was thinking of just dieconnecting the 12VDC output from the converter from the system. The converter will still be alive but not loaded. It looks like I can do this with a 2 battery disconnect switch where there is a batt1, both, batt2, off positions on it.
In BATT1 position the converter will be connected to trailer only.
In BOTH position the converter and batteries will be connected to the trailer normally ( for battery charging).
In BATT2 position the batteries will be connected to the trailer only.
In the OFF position the converter and batteries will be disconnected.
I have a Boondocker 45A converter and it does not need a battery connected to operate.
Any thoughts good or bad
Happy camping nm1oqrz
