My van is a 1997 Dodge PW and the converter doesn't have a charge the battery as I understand it.
I bought a replacement 3 stage converter that has a charger (as I understand it) and it will be here by Thursday.
I was thinking I need to charge my Optima deep cell battery to full charge, which they will do at Autozone for free.
So that is what I was going to do.
I hooked it up to shore power for several days, but that alone did not charge the house battery.
Am I missing something? Will the 3 stage plugged into shore charge the battery for me?
