Need a little more information then that. I assume you mean the 110v AC to 12v DC inverter. You will have to pull the one you have to make sure you are getting the right size. Typically I find Amazon is the best place to find these items.

More specifically something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/Powermax-Supp...power+inverter

But again you have to make sure it has the right tech specs.. and fits in your install space.

Converter on 2008 Country Coach Allure 470

The Xantrex inverter is the charger/converter as well. It is a combo unit.

Mine is located in my battery bay.

Is there a panel of sort that you have to remove before exposing the converter?

It is usually in the area with your breakers, but that depends on your coach. What yr, make, model is it? You should be able to find the manuals online that will tell you where it is.

My inverter is in the compartment accessed from the front basement compartment.

Yours may be different.

What BrianGlenn says. You will find a Xantrex inverter/converter/charger in the battery bay. If you don't recognize it, just follow the cable from the battery plus terminal to it.

On my '09 Magna it's in a compartment behind the batteries. I have to slide the bay slider out and crawl in, then remove a panel to access it. Glad I don't have to do it very often.

My battery bay is located behind the tag axle on the passenger side. It looks similar to this picture (courtesy of the internet, my coach is out at the lake). Mine is 2007 Allure 470 Sunset Bay (37'). Your should look similar.

The white box on the right side is the Xantrex Inverter/Charger (converter). It has one large positive/red battery cable and one large negative/black cable. It also has the AC 110V wiring as well.
