Upgrading new converter/charger

I bought a 2000 Alfa Ideal Model # 2430 that did not have a converter in it. There is a switch inside for 30 amp or 50 amp and the top breaker in the service panel on the left side has two 50 amp breakers. The DC power distribution center is close to the shore power receptical and the shore power cord has a 50 amp plug configuration. I need to know if I can use a WFCO 8900 Power Center Power Converter 55amp WF-8955PEC and wire the DC breakers and fuses to the new power center and abandon the original one?

Yes, but you should also be able to swap out just the converter section or install a free standing converter near the batteries.
