Where is the converter

I have a 2015 Forester 2861DS. Documentation lists an Intell-power 9200 series converter. Where is this located, I have looked everywhere so I thought. I do know about the power distribution panel with breakers and fuses under the bed but it says nothing about a converter. The manual says I should be able to see LED's as to what charging state it is in. Thanks.

This does not directly answer your question regarding a 2015 2861DS, but my 2017 2861DS has a Progressive Dynamics PD4560 converter/control panel, it is a single unit with the converter, breakers and fuses. It is located under the bed and it also has a LED indicating charge state that is seen by opening the door on the unit.

Have you removed the wood panel covering all the stuff under the bed? You will find the water tank and transfer switch there on mine and maybe the separate converter on yours? The panel is secured with just two screws, you need to prop the bed up to get to it.

It's either in your distribution panel or behind it.
