Battery, Charging, and Electrical

srweElectrical charging systems can be confusing. And you already know that nothing is more aggravating and irritating than a dead battery! Despite your best efforts, something is wrong, and you’re sure it will leave you stranded once again. Bottom line: these system can be challenging to say the least! Especially understanding the difference between a converter that takes 110 volts AC and converts it to 12 volts DC vs. an inverter that takes 12 volts DC and converts it to 110 volts AC. Did I just read that right?

So how does all this work, and why? Did you know the electrical relay/ solenoid is the decision-maker? And guess what? You have several of them, working together as the brains of the operation. There is also a charge coming from the motor on a class A to charge house batteries so you can invert while driving- this is generally called a Big Boy solenoid. Others come from the converter or inverter.
