No Charge Wizard?

I do not see one of these on my 2016 27RLS TT. I see the converter and load center etc etc but no Charge Wizard

Was this an option? Or am I missing something.

Thanks!

When you open the panel of your load center do you have a small green LED visible when plugged in to shore power? Sometimes mine blinks, sometimes on steady, based on the state of charge of my batteries. Mine shines though a small cutout, the LED itself is mounted behind the outer panel cover.

If you don't have a visible LED you may not have that option, or it may not be working if it is installed.

On the new ones, it is built in to the unit. Look for the blinking indicator light or read the info that came with it.

My converter is the WF-8955PEC and I don't see any LEDs I even pulled the front panel to actually see the inverter.

Looking online at that unit's specs and instructions it does state it it has "3 stage" charging, but it doesn't use the specific "Charge Wizard" language, probably a proprietary thing. Without an indicator light I am not sure how one can gauge what mode it is in short of monitoring the voltage.

yes exactly. I have both my Honda 2000's running and one of those 12v battery status devices plugged in to a 12v receptacle to monitor the charging of the batteries. I have dual 12V parallel batteries and they are charging at a creep. They would not charge up in 3-4 hours as others have said.

Sorry, I did not confirm which converter you have. The Charge Wizard tag is on Progressive Dynamics converters.
Yours has a 3 stage charging system but I am not familiar it's charge rate.
