Pinnacle Converter Charger Question

Does anyone know if the converter that comes with our stock Pinnacles are smart 3 stage converters?

I have heard and read that typical converters with boil the water in your batteries.

We are planning on starting Full Timing in late spring so I am trying to get any upgrades to our 2016 Pinnacle 36 FBTS before hitting the road.

Just wondering if there is a need to upgrade the converter to a smart converter or maybe the Pinnacle's stock converter is good enough to charge the battery without cooking it.

You will likely have a PD 90 amp converter. It should have the 3 stage charging ckt. My Eagle has it and I have never had a problem with batteries boiling.

Look at the model # on the converter and look the specs up online. I'll wager yours will do the job.

Thanks Norty1. The converter should be located in the fuse box, is that correct? Sorry, if that is a dumb question but I don't have any experience with them.
