Gator, I narrowed my search down to two units and in the end I went with the PDI9200 series Converter/Charger.
I believe my stock converter was a 65 amp so I went with the 70amp unit. The changeout is very easy. In the electrical compartment the converter should be mounted to the wall and may have a plastic cover around it to protect it a bit. It is simply plugged into an outlet there. Unplug the old, remove the screws that mount it, remove, install new one and plug in. There will be two heavy wires to attach to the output terminals which supply the 12volts to the rig and batteries. Easy install. I mounted the "charge wizard" control pendant right there in the bay by sticking it to the wall with the supplied double back tape.
I am VERY happy with this unit and by watching it's performance with the Trimetric monitoring system I installed I can see that it is working correctly and providing the needed 14.4 volt equalization charge as it should. If you care about your batteries I highly recommend it. And they aren't all that expensive either. I was kinda surprised.
