Question Newbie help with 12v Magnetek Converter 950

Good Morning, We just bought a 1995 Fleetwood Pace Arrow Coronado and we believe our 12v converter is out. We can't convert to 12v power. We checked fuses and all are good. We have located the converter under our fridge but are wondering the best way to remove it. Also where is the best place to buy a new one? We figured we will have to buy online. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most likely you can find it at Amazon with no problem. I replaced a similar unit about three years ago. You should get a modern all electronic unit such as Inteliac (check the spelling, my memory is fuzzy). It's cheaper, quieter, and you can get a more powerful charger. Mine was about $150.

Your converter has to receive 120v power to work. Were you able to verify that?

The 950 is obsolete now, and you can do better anyway. Get something like a Progressive Dynamics PD 9260, which has 3-stage charging and state of the art power management. It should fit easily where your old 950 was.
