I'm looking to upgrade my regular deep cycle battery to a Trojan t-105. I'll be charging it the majority of time with my existing Renogy 100w solar suitcase kit while boondocking (which is what I do most of the time with occasional shore power use).
My 2011 13' Scamp has the Progressive Dynamics PD9130 controller; I'll be plugging their Charge Wizard into it for better charging of the battery.
My question has to do with charging the battery while underway on the road. I know my 7 pin hook up supplies a charge -- does it go directly to the battery or does it route through the controller in the Scamp?
If not, is it recommended that I get a charge controller for the car? Ie Orion's 20A DC to DC one?
Muchero thanks for any clarity!
PS. I've been full time camping in the Scamp since 2016 and absolutely love it. The Scamp has been a champ handling whatever I dragged it through in remote areas. : )
