Battery charger Daryl 7-8-16  
I have a 1987 Citation Ford 26 foot motor home.While plugged in to power the battery is charging at 15.1 volts.My question is,is there a battery charger in this motor home and a power convertor or just a convertor and does that have to be changed.If it does have a charger how hard is it to replace.

Clarification: Depending on what Converter you have in your unit the converter is the battery charger or the battery charger is inside and part of the converter. If it still has the original converter they had an 6 or 8 amp charge board that would go bad on a regular basis. Obsolete and no longer available.

Depending on how you are checking your voltage you should see about 14.1 to 14.4 when first plugged in, 13.6 ish after 8 hours or so.

Voltage must be checked with a battery connected at the battery posts, not at an appliance or light inside the RV

15.1 volys means the converter has had a internal fault causing a "Run-Away" and needs to be replaced.

Good Luck
