Well, my converter is also a battery charger (says so right on the front panel - LOL). But I left shore power plugged in for 24 hours with no other drain and it's definitely not charging. I have it on a simple monitor and no love this afternoon when I went to check (12.5 just after turning off loads down to 12.3 per the monitor).
Otherwise the converter is working as expected. Well, as long as I have it plugged in (yes, that was this week's facepalm). 12v and 110v all work as expected.
House battery also runs 12v as expected when not plugged in and before I popped her back in a couple of weeks ago made sure the water levels were topped up.
I did a little research– and so tomorrow will double check my fuses in the converter (they are those glass tube ones) as well as my battery polarity although I'm pretty sure the latter is not the problem. Just cover all my bases.
If it's not either of those things then I assume that my converter is bad?
And more importantly, am I also correct in assuming that I can't trickle charge and leave the house battery connected at the same time? Currently I'm disconnecting before putting on the charger, but just checking to see if that is perhaps an unnecessary step.
As always, thanks in advance for any thoughts!
Coming from John for you, yes.
However, we might need to check to see if the copyright for "Grass Hopper" is still effective. If so, then yes, you are "Weed Hopper." Or someone has looked at my front yard in the last two weeks.
