Replacing the convertor.

(Not as good as solar but better than the old Magnetek.
I like the idea of putting the convertor on its own breaker. I'm thinking of calling camping world too buy one but I'll check out bestconverter first.

I have a fan sitting on the floor right in front of the converter grill. As soon as I get the time I'm replacing the whole thing.
