2008 Terra converter problem

Any ideas short of pulling the fridge to get the WFCO 9845 converter that failed out . I want to upgrade to Powermax Boondocker pm4b-45 , which is a lot better , but this looks like a major Job. Terra has the main electric panel under the fridge , so pulling that is not an option. Thanks for any ideas

I have the exact same year and model as you and I just replaced th converter with a Progressive Dynamics converter. I had the converter replaced by my local RV repair shop and they had to remove the refrigerator. Money well spent, the new converter is way better than the OEM converter.

That's crazy to have built a coach such that the refrigerator has to be removed to service something. My converter is under the refrigerator, but accessible by just removing a drawer under the refrigerator.

How about abandoning the bad converter in place and installing the new one somewhere else? Somewhere accessible...

12 years ago I purchased a 93 Pace Arrow DP. I replaced 4 house batteries with Sams Club golf cart batteries AND purchased a Progressive Dynamics 60 amp converter. Kept those batteries healthy up till I sold it last week!
