Okay, this may answer one of my questions from a post I just released...but I thought the converter was in the Power Center, which on my 2006 Jayflight 31 BHS is under the lower rear fold up bunk. Is there any way that I can be sure? I got the wiring schematics from Jayco on my trailer, and they have been very helpful tracing things, but they don't refer to where the actual converter is, just the power center. Thanks!

George - as far as I know, all the converters are right behind the power center but there could be some exceptions. If you want to find it, turn on every lightbulb while you are plugged into AC. After a minute, it should kick the fan on in the converter and you can use your ear to find it.

Correct. Up until the 2011 models, Jayco had IOTA Engineering manufacture there power DLS converter/2-stage chargers, and they were configured in two different ways. Many came with the ILC Load Center (breaker/fuse panel with black cover) and the converter/charger was mounted to the rear on the same frame. The other configuration was with the IOTA converter/2-stage charger mounted separate from the breaker/fuse panel, but usually close by.

I believe all the new Jayco models now use a Progressive Dynamics converter/3-stage charger.

Terry,

IMO the Progressive Dynamics is a better unit because it's a 3-stage charger. The prior Jayco IOTA converter/chargers that were mounted separate from the Load Center you can add a IQ Smart Charger to make them a 3-stage for about $20 (plugs right in). http://www.iotaengineering.com/iq.htm

The IOTA's that were mounted to the back of Load Center frame don't have the plug-in port.......go figure.

Bob

Yep - I have the one mounted right to the load center. I spent 20 minutes and a mirror looking for that port with no luck when I first got it.

So far it has worked well though. I leave it plugged in while in storage and it has not cooked the battery and I rarely have to add water.

Well under my sofa is a "blow up air matress"! It has its own electric air pump attached. I suppose if I left the switch on and turned on the poewr it would try to pump!
Just thought I would throw that in
