Why is the converter mounted so far from batteries?
I've often wondered why the battery charger (converter) is mounted so far from the batteries. Romex is cheaper than 4 guage copper cable, and voltage drop is higher with long runs of high current cable. If the converter is mounted adjacent to the batteries, (but not in same compartment) it just seems that it would work better. I'm thinking of relocating mine.
What am I missing?
