Well the charger is an option but i just want a converter. It's from 78 and I have no info on it. However I only have a few thing on it like the 12v side of the furnace, the charging, the lights and water pump that's it. I would guess mine is no more than 30 amp

Progressive Dynamics is one of the best.
Order a PC9245CV and get next day shipping from Amazon.
That is probably your best option.

I did a lot of boat work before the Depression and installed many PD units. I still like them.

Long term I would recommend you get a Progressive Dynamics replacement from Randy at Best Converters. If your converter is a stand alone get a 9200 series If it's part of your power center they have another line that should work better.

Or upgrade to an Inverter/Converter

For now.. A smart charger should work you may need to manually re-start it from time to time but it should work and you can get one at your local Auto Parts place.

Handy device to have in any case.. I'd get one at least 30-50 amps in the CHARGE mode (not boost mode)
Home is where I park it!

If you can't find a converter, go to a marine store like West Marine for a smart charger. It will get you by for now.
