Post Centurion CS 2000 switching power converter
Hi there we have a Jayco 2001 Hawk Outback which has a Centurion CS2000 switching power converter. it says in the manual that it can be used as a battery charger as well, however is a little scarse on the detail of how to set it up. Has anyone done this? If so how have you set it up and what have you used for the set up.

thanks
Jason

Is this any help? It shows the location of the charger connection point on the XL models which may be similar.

The Centurion and Setec power supplies that Jayco use are perfectly adequate for running the lights in your van. They will maintain fully charged batteries but are seriously lacking when you wish to charge up a depleted battery. They are an American design and you can read about similar units in this link http://www.caravanandmotorhomebooks.com/articles/imported_rv_electrics.htm

If you wish to operate a battery supply in your van then I recommend you install a good multi stage charger when you install your battery.
