Spare converter. What to do with it?

I have a brand new wfco 8725p power converter, never installed. What can I use the converter for in my motorhome?

I had a coachmen TT until last year. I bought the converter to go with it as a backup, but the old one never died. I put the wfco in the shop and forgot about it.

I found it recently while cleaning and just thought I'd throw the question out there. I now have a 1989 mallard sprinter class a in great shape. The converter in it works like a dream.

I was just curious if I could use the wfco to maybe add an extra 110 outlet or a couple of more DC items, a battery bank or some such.

I'd say put it on eBay or something. I have two WFCO's...no problems. I use one of the old converters as a 45amp battery charger/booster in the garage.

The converter won't add a 120V outlet, only take up one and put out 12V power. I wouldn't use two converters on one system, they might fight.
