I did do that. I always put on the disconnect whenever I park, but Im a big chicken cuz I had some battery issues this last year which "I think" I traced to a bad ground and fixed. But my Napa warranty is up on my starter batteries now and I just want to be super careful. Thank you!

I emailed the guy at the JAC link, but he never responded  Sad So I took matters into my own hands  Roll Eyes How about the JAC 2512 for $100.00? Would that be okay for me?

I thought you wanted a 24 volt charger.  The JAC2512 is a 12 volt charger.  The JAC2024, or any of their models that end in "24" would do for you, but I think the JAC2024 is a good choice.  If all you need is a 12 volt charger, then there are a million available just about anywhere.  Schumacher is a good brand, available at Walmart.

I have been using the BatteryMinder model 24041 for some time with good results - It is a very flexible tender - Check the web for best prices - HTH

Also just purchased a Schumacher SE-3000 Fleet Charger 6/12/18/24 Volt through Amazon for only $209 total including shipping and am quite satisfied with it - FWIW

Just found this.

Very very good prices.

Anybody know of these products? Not a pure sine wave?

Interesting unit.  It says it is modified sine wave.  Since it uses a separate 120 outlet connection to sense shore/generator power availability, the AC input could not be taken from a normal receptacle powered through the breaker box.  It would need some special outlet that the inverter could not feed.

They are just normal import from Far East MSW inverters that have a little charger added on.  The output is (or sure looks like) four 120 VAC plugs, each pair with a circuit breaker, so you wouldn't be able to hard-wire it to your in-bus AC distribution system legally.  My understanding is that permanently installed inverters in mobile homes must be hard wired if they feed an internal distribution system, you can only plug individual items into the plugs.
