Converter Charger Model #

Good morning everyone! We have a 22 FBS that is on the assembly line and want to know what model number converter/charger is being installed. Does anyone have a 2021 model that happens to know?

Thanks!

Keep in mind that the same model may have different equipment installed. Give FR a shout and see if they can provide the information from the build sheet. I have to ask the reason for your question?

Thanks for the info SeaDog! Dumb question, what is the best avenue to contact them?

I am planning to install lithium batteries almost immediately and want to see what the charging profile looks like for the included converter/charger.

If you ordered through a dealer you should have mentioned it at the time and have the dealer make a note of it on the order form.

Thnaks Scrapper.

Our deal was a little weird in that we grabbed a unit that was already on the assembly line. We were able to make some changes, but not everything. And, quite frankly, I forgot about it until afterward!

I would think the dealer should be able to get this info for you. On another point you might consider using the rig for a time before you change out the batteries to see if given your camping style are lithium batteries really needed. JMHO

SeaDog,
We spec'ed out the unit with the 12V fridge with 380 watts of solar. We want to be able to go at least 2 days without shore power. I think the only way we will be able to do that is with 200 AH of LiFePo4.
