WFCO Converter Battery Charging with LA and AGM Batteries
Thanks for the suggestion rkswyo.
I think after looking into this that I am going to add an AGM battery inside the TT; currently looking at the Optima Blue-Tops.
One question for any of you that may know:
Our trailer has the WFCO 8955 Converter/Charger. It a 3-stage charger with bulk, absorption, and float modes; 14.4V, 13.6V, and 13.2V respectively. We boondock quite a bit and want to have extra power since on the cold nights with the DW and kids and furnace on, I wake up to a battery that is around 50%.
We currently have the Interstate DP-24 (Group 24) battery, and I want to buy an Optima group 31 AGM battery to wire in parallel with the existing battery.
I know I've read how some people say you MUST have the exact same battery Wired in parallel, and others who said it wasn't a big deal.
Now to my question: can this stock converter I have charge by the lead acid battery I have now AND the AGM battery I am planning to add, if they are wired in parallel?
Thanks in advance!
