Does it work like a mirror to help hitching the trailer? Just a guess...

I suspect that it's a type of sight glass so the one can see from which bottle the regulator is drawing.

Actually think it's a great idea as I find myself taking the bottle cover off to accomplish the same thing. Especially when I know one bottle is getting low and I'm expecting the regulator to flip to the full bottle.

"O" contrar OC a progressive is a very good 4 stage charger that will allow you to choose your charge rate. Great converter charger for people who do not stay tethered to a power pole while camping all the time. A progressive with the wizard allows you to control your charge, perfect for someone who likes to boondock and has to charge there batteries by a generator, they can put it in bulk charge anytime they want 14.4 volts to get the max charge rate of 90% of any size they pick such as 45 amp to 100 amps. You can not do that with a WFCO. Also a WFCO will not do desalinization of your plates every 21 hrs,. I don't think FR would be putting them in if they didn't see the benefits over WFCO.

Had camping trailers since 1976 and never had a problem with whatever converter was installed and no battery problems. I stand by my statement, don't waste the time and money replacing a perfectly good converter, now, if it goes bad, replace it with whatever you choose.

BTW, it's "au contraire".

Why would you spend money replacing a perfectly good, functioning converter?

Not nessecarily mods but stuff to do.
Get some treated 1X10 and 2X10 cut to varying lengths to use to level your trailer or buy plastic block leveling kits (wood is cheaper).

Buy or make some wheel chocks.

I would look into a whole trailer surge/power protection. Search around the site and you will find a bunch of posts on this.

Mods I have on my list for this winter are 5X5 fence post storage for my sewer hose, black and grey tank turbo flush (or similar) and extending the various water drains under the trailer to frame mounted valves.

Read post 14 again, I explained it to you already. Please do not try an bate me into a silly argument. You have your opinion and I have mine. What I said in #14 makes perfect sense to me and is my opinion that's all, disagree if you want but don't say it's wrong facts are fact period.......
