Who has a 35RL? I have a 55amp converter but soon to be a 70amp converter

I do have an inverter and was told by service during PI that inverter will provide a trickle charge to the batteries as well as keep residential fridge running during travel. Is this not the case?

Not the case, it won't provide trickle charge to the battery, that should be achieved by the truck 12 volts charging supply.....

The inverter charging the batteries powering the inverter! Sounds like a perpetual motion machine! I'd like to have one of those.

Ok, the site team did a little edit on a few posts. We can play a little nicer than that since we are all buddies here. We are all here to help and learn, so let's please not lose sight of that.

I personally believe that a few subjects may be getting confused, as there are RV's that have only a converter, some that have both a separate converter and inverter, and some that have a combination inverter/charger.

Here are some schematics concerning the separate converter and inverter, and then the combination inverter/charger. As stated in the schematic for the separate converter and inverter, if there is no power from either the generator (if equipped) or shore power, then the link is broken going to the converter, so a properly wired RV will not have the converter powered by the inverter.

This information may be found here, along with much more good reading.

There's also converter in board or outboard from your dist panel.
