From first your picture , I believe , the existing unit model # is under the words " Power Panel " ( 70VF ) ?

I didn't know the doctors ; moonlighted as RV electrical installers .

I'd think one of the longer words beginning with C , would be converter .
Beyond that , you'll have to turn them off ; one at a time ; and see what doesn't work .

They are not your 12v power converter. I would look in the bedroom maybe somewhere close to these other electric components are. Mine was actually screwed to the bottom of the closet floor. I had to remove a drawer to access it. It is just a plug and ground and positive and negative wire .

I believe your going to find your converter under the cover I circled.
Remove the 2 screws, I marked ( All power off ) and remove the cover.

Thank you, unfortunately the photo was not attached to your post. Where do you think the converter is? I'm hopeful the PD4045 fits in the same location and I thought the 12v Converter was built in

I'm pretty sure the converter section of the power panel, is in the cavity behind the plate on the left side , held in place by the three screws ( yellow circles )

twinboat's version of your photo may not have been resized and failed to post .

Racer26 , is talking about a different configuration , with a smaller 120/12 volt section and the converter remotely mounted.

Thanks for the helpful information. If I remove the old WFCO and install PD4045KV which has power converter built in, as I'll be removing all wires would it matter that I left the old converter installed? Technically it would be fully disconnected.

To be of any help I'd have to find and look over the new unit's install instructions, I'll look onto that tonight.

We had a 37C. The converter was under the washer/dryer.
