Thank you for the response!
Both of you mentioned a converter. Is the Intellipower and a 3 stage converter the same?
At the risk of sounding naive, Why would I need a converter in the "boonies" since there's no AC to power it
from...and what am I trying to empower that the battery isn't, besides maybe the battery itself! Apologies,
I'm having a tough time composing a question here because there's something I'm just not getting!
I'm thinking, if I had electricity to run a converter I'd have electric to power my independent system with a simple cord plugged in.
Overlander63 you said, "The bad news is you will have to find a place to install it." Is the converter that large! I am building a dinette or L-shaped lounge in the front to house a water tank and pump, would that not fit in there too or off to the side?
From reading the battery forums I realize I do need something to keep the battery charged. Will probably get a small generator since we have unreliable sunlight in the Northeast.
And while I'm on a dumb question roll, here's another (might as well keep them all in one thread). Unfortunately this so elementary it isn't in any threads I've searched-So I get a battery and put it on the tongue in a battery box, fasten it down, etc. Now what? Something goes from those battery terminals and connects onto something in my trailer, does it have a specific name! Does it connect to the plug that goes to the TV, to a recepticle, or is it wired directly into the 12v fuse panel? There is a recessed three blade plug to the right of the A frame. I'm hoping it has nothing to do with providing 12v current because I read in one of the threads that the power cord for this is no longer available. Above this plug is the ___??? in the picture. What I think is the 12v fuse panel is nearly aligned with it on the inside. Husband and I have no clue what it is or for.
Because of the age of my GT, I'm having difficulty finding pictures and info that apply. Even other 50's era Globetrotters seem different. I appreciate all the help. Thanks.
