the 12 volt system is not working at all. i want to replace the whole power distribution center. i would then have 12 volt fuses. at large party functions a generator is used for running outlets to run electric appliances if needed and in return would peak charge my batteries. sorry for any confusion.

Why do you need a converter for off grid use? The converter charges the batteries and supplies 12vdc when connected to shore power. When off grid the converter does nothing.

When operating from a generator all power goes through the breaker panel, no converter necessary.


Not in my trailer nor most/all others. when hooked to the generator the converter is charging the depleted battery! Like in my case to the tune of stuffing 75-100A into it for a few hours to get it back up to 80% or so.

No converter, soon no 12V, no charging, dead battery.
