Power supply mode in permanent install

Hi

My ip65 22/10 Bluesmart charger is permanently installed in a camper, please can anyone tell me if I switch to power supply mode while connected to 230v and use 12v lights etc will this be ok or should I leave the charger in charging mode and use the 12v lights etc. Does the power supply mode mean the leisure battery will not be being drained.

Thanks in advance

battery connection

I don't see the specific model you call out (IP65 22/10). I do find an IP65 12/10.

If you have batteries connected to the IP65 the you should NOT switch it to power supply mode. The charger and your batteries will work together to provide power to your 12 volt loads.

Power supply mode disables the charging profile providing a "stiff" voltage to your DC loads. So you could under or over charge your batteries
