"Smart" convertor on Sprinter?
Hello, all. New to this RV but not to RVing. I am trading my 10-year old Holiday Rambler "C" for a 2015 Thor Siesta Sprinter 24 ST.
My question--after having to yearly replace the coach battery on my old RV, the tech told me the the convertor on that model was a "Dumb" convertor that simply overcharged the battery. He had me disconnect the coach batteries every fall and hook up a "smart" battery charger. That worked great, but what a pain!
Now I understand that there is such a thing as a "smart" 4-stage convertor. If you leave the RV plugged in to shore power all winter, it will not overcharge the battery.
Could someone tell me if my new Thor Sprinter might have this? Can i have the dealer install one before I pick it up if it does not?
Thanks! This RV looks very, very nice! (Picking it up in January sometime)
