I have a 95 four wins 278 vista. I thought my charger was bad so I bought a new one before really checking. It's original, so I figured it was time. Turns out that I am getting proper voltage thru the switch, so I am going to keep using the guest 2615 hooked to switch plate when on shore power and use my pro mariner to charge when I'm home. Anyone see any issues with this?

Did you mount your promariner, or do you just plan to connect it to the batteries when it's at home? What model promariner, out of interest?

Really no reason you can't have both, just can't use both at the same time. If you have room maybe keep the Guest as a backup.

Promariner chargers are great, if you got the model that's made for permeant mount it is going to be far superior than the original Guest charger. What model did you get? Some are made for powering while charging, meaning it does a great job keeping up with power demand of your 12 volt systems while in use(fridge, lights...). It also does a great job on maintaining charge once it's topped off.
Follow the instructions carefully. The wiring is very important for voltage sensing and not over charging. I installed one a few years ago and was pretty easy.
