It has been my opinion and experience with my bass boats and Rv's that I can get a better, and more complete charge in a shorter time and easier charge on a deep cycle battery with a 3 stage vector charger connected directly to the battery. That has been my opinion and some of us guys that run bass boats. The bass boats have on board chargers of course but they take all night. I am looking into a system called a charge wizard that is a high out put device that is a converter and charge wizard together that put a very high charge but yet protects the battery. Thanks

My Jayco came with a Progressive Dynamics converter. They are the one's that make the Wizzard. Some units come with a built in three stage charger, and if they don't they'll have a phone jack connection on the back of the converter, where you can install a Charge Wizard (turns your converter into a three stage charger).


On our first TT I was replacing the batteries every other year. I didn't know about the Charge Wizard til the last year we owned that rig. When we bought this Jayco I immediately installed the Wizard. I haven't replaced these batteries since. So these batteries (Trojan 6 volt T-125's) are 5 years old and still going strong.

That Wizard and the Water Miser caps I installed have saved me tons of cash.

Welcome Bill. I live here is Branson as well. If you haven't visited Coachlight RV in Carthage yet, definately check them out. Talk to Doug over there and tell him Jon Jenkins referred you. Our familys have done business together for years. They really really take care of their customers and have a "no bull" approach. He'll shoot you straight.
