lights dimming

I just ordered a Progressive Dynamic converter. My one year old WFCO that came with the 5r went bad.
After some internet homework it seems that the WFC model I had has a history of losing the ability for some reason to "bulk" charge during heavy usage.
I'm not saying that WFCO is junk. My experience is obviously limited with them but if I replace something I like to upgrade. Heard and read nothing but good things about the PD converters. I also liked the display feature. It might just be an idiot light but at least I'll know it's working.

My converter is a parallax converter. The new one that I bought and replaced the bad one with has been going strong now for 3 years. The replacement that I received is still new in the package tucked away in the camper. Just in case it happens again while on vacation. BTW, which progressive dynamics converter did you purchase and how did you know which one matched up to your campers need.

I had a 55 amp converter and went with a 60 amp from PD. It'll be fine.
