Is this true for a Class C MH as well? (I know where the man power switch is, but don't have a clue as to where the converter switch might be.)

Thanks!

Sorry. I can't be certain about your class C. However, the class B MH we owned until we bought our TT had a 'house' battery and engine starting battery. It had a circuit breaker panel with switches for the converter, electric water heater, etc. When plugged in, it charged the 'house' battery with a 'smart' charger.

If you create a topic regarding your specific vehicle, someone in the JOF may have a better answer for you.

If you install a battery disconnect switch, it is amazing how long a battery will stay almost 100% charged. If you don't have a disconnect then you will have parasitic drains on your battery all the time.

The converter is On when the generator is running or the plugged in. The converter supplies 12 volts for all lights, fridge, water heater, etc. If it were not running about the only thing that might work is the AC and 120 volt outlets. Most all converters include a charger for the motorhome batteries.
