    CLRH2O... what is your name/username/screentag/secret agent code? I really like to address people by something I can pronounce and can say rapidly more than once after being given terrific ideas and money/life saving info!

    And by the way... THANK YOU for taking the time to put that info online for me and everyone else who will be searching for it in the next year. I know this topic has been gone over and over and over again but everyone knows that the hardware technology and suppliers keeps changing and what existed or was the right way to go 4 or more years ago is long outdated and probably not available.

    So, again thanks to everyone who replied! That’s why I love this forum.... and that’s why I was willing to buy a 1981 coach and make the necessary improvements and repairs.

    Gil, thanks! I have had some prior experience with Magnum in my ‘95 Airstream Classic 36 but that was back in 2010. I see a similar unit is available but I think I might go for that Victron.... the double leg capability seems like what might be necessary to deal with the starter batteries (12v in parallel = 24v) and the coach batteries (12v in series = 12v) is worth the extra cash. Am I understanding that right? Will it charge both sides separately?

    Hmmmm.

    Michael,

    The inverter/charger would be for the house bank. In your case, 12V. The chassis batteries could be charged, really just maintained, with a low amperage inexpensive charger.

    I agree that Victron makes a great product.

    Garynmike - my pleasure man!

    I have the same feeling you do about forums - this is THE place to really get the info down for future reference and adding as much as we can is the best way to do that

    As for my name and handle. My actual name is Clearwater, and so my 'handle' is CLRH2O as an embellished abbreviation
