I've had WFCO converters in the last three RV's, and the last one lasted 9 years before I had a power surge take out the charging unit. The one before that lasted until we traded, which was about 5 years. Never overcharged the batteries and they were powered on all the time.

I can't say that PI isn't better, but I don't think WFCO is as bad as people think they are.

Saying that you hear of WFCO's failing every day and you never hear of PI's failing, doesn't say much if WFCO has 90% of the market share. (P.S. I don't know what market share WFCO has. That was just an illustration.)

I've not had a problem with WFCO units that were in a couple of units we had.
They worked fine and never cooked the batteries.

Most everyone here seems to think Best Converter is the place to go for converters so I was surprised when it was suggested that you should contact them and ask them to recommend something other than what they had already recommended. ??

Is there a difference between the WFCO and the progressive, other than price. Our 2000 Flagstaff Pop Up is 15 years old and I don't want to spend anymore money then I have to considering we won't have this for another three years.

All around better charger.
With the charge wizard pendant you can also control charging rate!
