As I said above, I'm not so sure that it's ok to turn it back on without the battery/fuse on there. At the least, make sure all of the wires outside where the fuse used to be are taped up.

I still think the right approach is to replace the missing fuse.
True barry! Although I suppose you can run a wfco converter without a battery for an emergency it is "HIGHLY" recommended NOT to.

After talking to a tech at wfco and several emails he said smoke will release from the unit if there's not a battery buffer in the system.

It will overheat as the fan/ fans will not keep up with the heat.

Same goes for a "bad" battery.

New Progressive dynamics on the other hand can be run without a battery.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.

Totally off-topic, but for future reference. I was checking your profile and see we are possible neighbors. The WM in my name is the abbreviation for West Monroe.
