    If your converteter is not charging, take it to a dealer. It takes a lot to remove all the wires and reconnect them correctly.

    Try www.bestconverter.com. Call them and tell them what converter you have and they will have a replacement for it. I replaced my converter in my old trailer without any problems. Took me about 45 minutes. Just tag the wires as you take them off.

    RE: brokeded convertor

    I'm in the same situation. The old Magnetek converter in my MH is suspected of being the main reason my house batteries were destroyed. There is a replacement/upgrade kit for this converter but I read several negative reviews on this upgrade. I discovered there is no reason for replacing the complete converter (fuse panel, breaker panel. converter unit and housing) so I'm replacing the converter unit only with an Intelli-Power unit. I'll have to make some modifications to the original housing for better ventilation but the wiring is very simple, 3 wires for AC/ground and 3 DC out wires.

    Local weather is improving so I'm running out of excuses for getting outside and taking care of this job. :laugh: :cool:

    thanks guys for all of the great input. I took all of your advise took pictures tagged all of the wires called the local camper land they hooked me up with inteli convertor , very easy to hook up. it cost $215.00 plus tax for a 40 amp. the pictures sure did help for refering back to and tagging each wire I removed was to easy. I appreciate & my family appreciates the lighting. yall take it easy & maybe we'll see you at the lake.
    :cool: Cesar
