Looks like a good unit and will be much better than your old one.
The batteries will love you. haha

And your circuit breaker looks easy to change-just unbolt it from the board and bolt the new one in!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR THERE HELP

I am still in shock on how fast everyone replied and how patient you all where with me, I really appreciate it.

It makes me really happy to get a little more familiar with electrical and also familiarize myself with my RV and where things are and how they work.

This is my first RV and as all of you probably experience when you got your first one there is a lot to take in and understand.

So again thank you everyone for everything.

I would see if for some reason the current one trips I would be surprised if it does.

If you do change the CB make sure you do not have any voltage going to the board you do not what to know what it cost.

Reminder....you said that when the engine is running you got 13.8 volts across the batteries...if that's still correct then when plugged into shore power or the ginny you get 12.3 volts, then that points to a bad Inverter/converter. Rook

I have the Progressive Dyniamics 9260 Converter/Charger have never tripped the 50 amp breaker. There is no need to change the breaker. For future reference and troubleshooting of your 12V power distribution board I have an email from RV Custom Products with all the drawings for the board. The drawings are slightly different then what was posted by wb7uak. If you would like them send me a PM with your email. Or you can call RV Custom Products 562 - 921-8353 and have them emailed to you.

Addendum to post #64 .....a bad Inverter/converter, or something causing the Inverter/charger not to work. Rook
