RE: 12V fuse in junction box on trailer frame

Ok, now that I've done some more reading, and as time2roll mentioned, it's probably a resettable circuit breaker. I will check to see if there is a reset button. I'm just concerned as to why it tripped.

RE: 12V fuse in junction box on trailer frame

The maintenance output is ~13.6V, the wires are stock, I think 6ga. Do you think when the charge wizard went into boost mode it blew? The stock PD9140 is a single stage.

12V fuse in junction box on trailer frame

I recently upgraded to 6V GC2 batteries and added a Charge Wizard to the existing converter/charger. Everything tested good prior to and during a 4 day dry camp. Ran the generator a bit and it showed the batteries charging. Got home, plugged the trailer in and the batteries were not taking a charge. Checked the voltage on either side of the fuse or breaker in the junction box on the frame near the tongue and found the difference. What type of fuse/breaker is this and value? Any speculation as to why it blew? Thanks.

RE: Voltage drop on inverter

Telephone and talk to Blue Seas Systems. They have their act together when it comes to supplying what you need. Phone: +1 800-222-7617 A direct continuous short can blow your batteries to shreds. Ignite your inverter and a bunch of other nasty deeds. They say and I agree CLASS T fuses are the proper way to fuse ANY inverter. I learned this 30 years ago from Trace Engineering. But Blue Seas will set you straight. Circuit breakers have a specific use for a specific application and PROTECTING ELECTRONICS is not on that list. Hope this helps I apologize for hijacking this thread. I'm looking to get about a 2KW inverter, I called Blue Sea and was told the class T fuse size depends on the inverter input specs. None of the inverters I look at online give that particular spec. Am I not looking in the right place?

RE: Direct replacement for PD9140 converter?

Another related question: I'm replacing my 12V batteries with 2 GC2 6V 230ah batteries in a vented tongue box and plan to install a ~2000W or so pure sine inverter. Since I shouldn't put the inverter in the same battery box, the nearest area I can install it is about 6-7 feet away inside the trailer. Is there a way to calculate what size cables I need for that distance or is that just too far to be efficient?

Direct replacement for PD9140 converter?

I searched for this with no luck. Is there a 3 or 4 stage direct replacement (footprint) for the PD9100 series converter? Also, the Progressive Dynamics web site said to not exceed the original converter amperage due to wiring, etc. If I increased it then I assume I would need to install larger gauge cables between the batteries and converter? Thanks.
