Removing Battery
« on: May 02, 2017, 11:50:47 AM »
Battery is dead on our Quicksilver 10, we have never camped without power at our campsite.  If I take the battery out until I decide to get another one or do away with it all together, will this affect the inverter?  Will cause the 12 volt ports to be higher since it is not charging a battery?

I think you mean converter. But in any case it is a bad idea to hook up to 120V AC without a battery in the 12V system. Voltages can jump around without the battery to stabilize them, but most 12V appliances are designed to run on anything from 11 to 14 V.

If you have electric brakes, you will have no breakaway braking.

Just go down to your friendly Costco, Sams, WalMart and buy one. If you never use it alone without 120V power, then the model doesn't matter. Look for the cheapest that will fit.

Thanks
Don't have brakes so that is not an issue.  But I will just throw one in like you said to stabilize the voltage.  Plus if anything happens always have the battery to fall back on.
