Could you provide a link please? Went to eBay and RVOutlet has tons of these. Can't tell which ones will fit our PC. Thanks.

How user friendly is the fuel filter?
Itís mind boggling that Honda doesnít own the rv generator market too. They really should make a bolt in replacement for the green monsters.
Started to look in earnest for the touch up paint today. First stop Ace Hardware, then Home Depot, then Sherwin Williams. Nobody could convert the paint codes provided by PC. Does anyone know where to get the Desert Sand touch-up paint over the counter or on-line?
My bad... I used the wrong term, I generally call them the engine and house batteries, but occasionally use the term "chassis battery" to refer to the house battery.
You are correct, shore power (other than that white switch or a Trik-l-Start) only charges the house batteries, not the engine battery. The engine battery is typically charged by the alternator on the engine.
I will go edit my post to correct that.
Now I am confused! You wrote: "you can only charge your chassis batteries when you have a source of power (shore power or generator)." I did not think that on my 2007 2350 the chassis battery received a charge when plugged into shore power or from the generator; I thought only the house batteries did. My understanding was that the chassis battery only gets charged by the alternator when the coach engine is running (or if you open the switch by the driver's left knee to transfer power from the house batteries, or of course if you have some other form of charger attached to the chassis battery (solar, trickle, etc.). Maybe I am confused about which battery is called what? I've always heard the battery in the engine compartment used to start the engine called the "coach" or "chassis" battery, and the ones used to power lights, appliances, pump, etc., called the "house" batteries. Please set me straight!I saw the sorry excuse for TrippLites explanation for the switch positions. There was a short paragraph dedicated T o switch positions where the charge function was described as "⊙☆●□♤£Ä\~~°◇♡Ä£•".
Obviously, an error it was meaningless and neither usable as a hyperlink or text.
Although I appreciate your response, your answer begs the question: charge position for shore power only? Or, is to be used in conjunction with the truck generator?
I see you found Ron's post. Yes, as I said, you can only charge your chassis batteries when you have a source of power (shore power or generator). Since when you have power from generator or plugged in, you don't need the inverter... you already have 110v for the TV outlets and so forth. Thus the charge only position. For me, that would be the normal switch position.
However, if I wasn't plugged in (or running generator) and I wanted to use a 110v appliance, like a coffee maker or TV.. Then put the switch in the inverter position and the TripLite will then use your batteries and convert the 12v DC into 110v AC. Obviously drawing power from the chassis batteries. As Ron mentioned, even if you are not using a 110v appliance, the inverter itself, draws some power from the batteries if the switch is in the inverter position, so why waste that power, turn the switch to charge only.
