All About RV Converters
This reference, while good enough for some basic info, is quite outdated. Modern RV converters (at least the one installed in our 2010 Rockwood SUL 8315BSS) have a 3-stage battery charger/maintainer as part of their circuitry, and is capable of supplying 55Amps. (Trailer is currently at the dealer, so I am unable to include converter make & model, at this time)

True. I agree that the article is in need of an update as to the points you made. But note that saybo asked the question, the one I tried to help him with, in reference to his 2001 TT and to not having 12 volt power when plugged in. I am, however, a bit confused. Did you mean only to point out the article needed to be updated or are you suggesting that an increase in the output of the converter or the nature of the battery charging circuit affect how a converter works?

Sorry for confusion - simply meant to point out that the quoted reference is a tad outdated for modern converters, particularly in relation to efficiency in maintaining batteries. Guess I am guilty of hi-jacking the original thread.
