Thanks Bob!

Mike, this one (the international line) does have a new multistage charging for 2018.

All AS models have had "multistage" chargers for quite a while. The ongoing debate has been about how effective (or not) those chargers actually are. It's sort of a "how stupid can it be and still be a smart charger" thing.

Many of us are looking for real details on the "new" chargers. There's been enough contradictory yack that digging into an actual trailer is probably the only way to sort it all out. Yes, a good detailed owners manual would sort part of it out. I'm not expecting one on the web for a while.

Just to be clear, no, I don't expect a super duper charger to suddenly appear on the 2018's. I'm pretty sure that aftermarket chargers will still beat whatever they are using. The question is - how tight a race is it this time?
