17Z Converter/Charger Question
 
Can I hook up my camper to shore power without having the battery installed?? I have the batt in the garage on a maintainer and want to do a few things and don't wanna put the battery in until warmer weather.

With most newer converters you can run without the battery. Some older converters used the battery to moderate the dc voltage. Since yours is a 2010, I'll bet you'll be ok. Do be sure to check the battery terminals and make sure you don't develop a short from the positive battery cable to ground as your converter is trying to charge the absent battery.
