I don't believe that for one minute. Electrically, it makes no sense.

"but then some say the reducers can only run so much stuff?"

Check the output rating of the reducer to see how many accessories (watts or amps) you can run from it.


"the problem with reducers is when they go bad they blow up everthing that is supplied from it..."

I don't want to get in a piss'in match with anyone but I've only seen two reducers over the years that have failed and both had 36v in, 0v out???????

Not to mention that if the load/devices are properly installed with appropriately sized fuses then even if the converter/reducer does fail it will blow the fuses before getting to the load/devices.

Sorry, I'm not buying what you're selling either. Any mfr that would allow a product to operate in the manner you describe is headed for trouble.

Care to enlighten us with mfr/make/model etc. We'll then know to stay away from those!
