Is your IOTA free standing or attached to the back of the Load Center (fuse panel), and what year is your trailer?

Freestanding. It is mounted on the wall about 16 inches from the load center. It is a 2006 Jayfeather 19h.

When you mentioned IOTA in your first post, I figured it was a pre-2007 model. The fact that it is a remote unit is good, much easier to R&R if it comes to that. Also, the IOTA is a 2-stage unit, most of the newer Jayco converter/chargers are 3-4 stage non-IOTA products......, much better for battery life.

"If" you find that the IOTA is still good, you can make the unit a 4 stage unit simply by adding a IQ4 Smart Charger (about $25)..., plugs into the back of most IOTA's (not the ones that mount to the back of the Load Center). Look for the dual voltage jack on the back of the IOTA.

I saw that jack on my Iota unit for a rapid charger. Does it just plug in there and that is it? No other connections necessary?

Yep, just plug it in.

That makes for one easy install. Thanks for your help Rustic Eagle.

One last question/possibility. If I did not have the power cord pulled out of the camper all of the way, could having the extra bit (<5-ft) left in its storage area cause enough heat to disrupt the converter?

IMO it wouldn't have any effect.
