Lewster doesn't like this one, as it doesn't compensate for temp and it has no serviceable parts....throw away.

You could call Randy at the above link...great guy...who will spend time with you and balance your needs with several offerings. He's very knowledgeable.

Installed the IOTA in 2007 along with 2 grp27 100ah Lifeline AGM's, one of the best up-grades so far.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

The first purchase I made with my last 2 new to me Airstreams was dump the univolts with new power max from Randy at Best Converter. A small price to bring me into the 21st century.

This is the best deal I have found. I got mine installed and it seems to work. I about had a heart attack when I plugged it in and it was putting out 15V. It does that when you first plug it in and within about 15 mins it drops the voltage to like 13.6V then to 13.2 V.

I am using one group 24 battery for now. I don't think a 27 will fit in the battery boxes. I can use two batteries but don't need one for anything accept controlling the voltage and emergency brakes. The size battery and number of them should not matter to the power converter. It will just take longer to charge 2 dead batteries than one. You can get more converter amperage if you want shorter charging times or it you are a 12V hog.
