Going up to an 80A is fine, especially the PD unit.

I don't remember, is this is a stand alone unit? If so, make sure the outlet it plugs into is the same as the new one. The PD unit needs a 20A 120V outlet.

In short nothing. You don't push amps at the loads. The loads pull the amps.

Yes, existing unit has the 20A plug.
May have to put replacement in different spot, as the old one is upside down on the roof of the basement pass thru, between a metal floor joist, and a plumbing drain.
I am really not impressed how they put this camper together. Think somebody had a hangover or worse, judging by the lack of craftsmanship....

Just realized this is also your thread (replied on the slide out problem.)

From being inside quite a few Keystone's, I wouldn't be surprised.

I opened a question separately from the others.
Keeps them shorter, and hope, not too obnoxious.
I did see you answering the other posts too, I just thought you liked to kelp fellow campers.
I appreciate all input.

New converter arrived the day we were leaving for a long weekend.
Turns out the old converter was junk. So bad that in 30 seconds the voltage swung from 9.2vdc to 11.7vdc. So bad, my radio would cut off at 9.5v and switch back on..
Converter made allot of noise too. Installed new converter, and was waiting for the fan to run... Quiet as a mouse. Oops, don't say that word...
Voltage is solid steady at 12.44vdc.
Boy does it make a difference.
Turns out my A/C needed 12vdc to run also, guess something to do with the thermostat.
It would stop sometimes, now I know why.

Thanks for all your help.

Many things use 12V, as you've learned. T-stat(s), furnace, water heater, water pump, refr, lights, slides, jacks/landing legs, antenna booster, and so on and so forth.

Had battery charging concerns and flickering 12 volt lights.. and found the clamp bolt on one of the hot legs to the converter was not ever tighten. it was a wonder it worked at all. actually found it when I was replacing the converter.
