Need help with Powermax pm3-55LK
Replacing my old converter in Jayco pop up. I need some basic tutoring on how this is actually supposed to be ran. I get the concept. The powered converter converts the 120 to 12v. I know I can wire the battery into lugs and charge the battery or keep it maintained. However we want to look at it. Then I could run my 12v wires to my lights, and my fridge. Here is where my brain gets confused. At that point, I then only have a 12 volt system and anything on the breakers pre battery are dead if I am unplugged from shore power. Now be gentle you all. If i wanted to run the 12v system devices, like my lights, without a battery I can. It converts the power to run them and that is how I have tested the unit first. Right now I just have one light hooked to lugs on the converter. How can I wire it, or should I, to make it run on either? Say, my battery is dead and I don't want to unplug everything and remove battery cables and plug the 12v wires from lights to converter. Also, This is where I know I will get eye rolls from ya, can I wire a outlet that is 120 only to where it runs off the converted system and say run a fan or something like that? I know I couldn't run a heater. Someone help me understand what it is should be my ultimate goal and what I should expect to accomplish with my converter?I will try and post pics below of unit and how I have wired my system so far.
