AUTO-DETECT: WF-8700-AD Series

The WF-8700-AD Series Power Centers will charge the 12-volt House battery if installed. A battery DOES NOT have to be installed for WF-8700-AD Series Power Center converter operation. When a battery is installed, a reverse polarity fuse protects the converter circuitry. The fuse is located along the bottom of the row of fuses. Refer to Figure 1 below. This feature prevents permanent damage to the converter from a battery connected into the circuit backwards. In addition to protecting the converter section, the reverse polarity fuse is the main connection between the converter and the DC fuse board.
