Tristar MPPT-45 and eliminating the converter
doug30293 Registered Users Posts: 4 ✭
My 5th wheel trailer has a rather dated converter/charger (2002). I am in the process of selecting solar components for boondocking. Oil Pan 4 seems to be having good luck using his solar charge controller as a converter. I am wondering if it would be practical to build/purchase a simple power supply to work in conjunction with the PV array and do all my charging through the charge controller. A separate converter/charger for shore power seems redundant since the Tristar MPPT-45 is capable of properly servicing the batteries as long as it has incoming power. Is there any reason why I really need a dedicated converter/charger?
