Univolt Replacement

I'm dumping the old univolt and considering the Inteli-Power 9245. This new unit advertises low line voltage protection...therefore, do I not need to install a fuse panel as everything downstream from the 9245 is protected?

The low line protection is from low AC voltage to the unit.

You still need fuse protection for the DC circuits. The DC fuse panel is where the converter ties to the battery as well as distributes 12 volts to the trailer.

Unfused electrical circuits can be a "fire" hazard, when you least expect it.

Fuses protect electrical circuits "AND" peoples lives.

Take a look at progresive 9245 load center. Gives you a 9245 converter w/ charge wizzard. Five 110 volt circuits, twelve 12 volt circuits. Makes a nice neat package. Only extra thing you need to buy is the 12v fuses, the 110v breakers and a couple bags of wire connectors. If the converter should go bad after warrentee cut and splice in a new one, two wires. The panel remains as is. I got one delivered for $135.00 from Vintage Technologies. So easy to install its fun.

You can use the Univolt fuse panel in several ways. Here is what I did.
