Taxman, did you ever find out if the Parallax can be converted to a three stage charger?

I have a solar panel with a three stage charger, so I just let that keep the batteries charged. I don't plug in shore power while at home unless the panel has been snow covered for a long time or I want to cool down the refrigerator. But when at a RV campground, I would think the shore power there may be overcharging the batteries.

Gene,

The Magnatek cannot be converted, dadgummit!

On our trip to the Everglades, I checked the converter output -- steady 13.8 volts on shore power. Will buy/install a Xantrex three stage converter before we leave on our summer trip.

Safe Travels,

FRank

All is well!
