    I used a switch I already had, but one of these from Amazon would do. You need a single pole, double throw with a center pin (3 pin) miniature toggle switch. The more difficult part is the connector attach it to the board. I can't help with a part number - again, it was something I had in my junk box.

    Be sure to turn off the converter when switching between the two states. If you switch while the converter is on, it puts a spike on the 12V side.

    Hello, Could you tell me where you got the jumper single pole switch for your converter? I have the same wildcat converter and would like the ability to switch. Thanks for any help you can lend.

    Hey Jon I'm going solar and was wondering where you placed the DC to DC charger. I've got a 10 Amp Victron and a 5.0 TA. I suspect the AC/DC distribution panels would be similar. I'll have two 100 amp Battleborns with a Victron solar controller and the Progressive Dynamics for the AC/DC converter charger. Thank jn

    Jon, the manual thermostat on off switch is tighter than a drum. It's plastic , don't want to break. First upgrade digital ?

    Sure I get that, everything will be empty, just want to do a 4 hour drive home safely. Then fill trailer and truck for actual use.

    You are still going to need to do an actual measurement. Without a lift, the top of the inside of the trailer ball socket should be at 19", at least as of the last time Escape posted it.

    Again, there are so many variations in the truck that one can only guess what will be the right rise/drop. In my case I have the trailer lift and usually carry at least 400 pounds in the truck bed.
