Turbs, are you thinking just replace with another WFCO that she could get close by at Camping World?

I don't think PD would be locally available and I didn't think they were "plug compatible" either are they?

I just checked and the New Braunfels Camping World has the 55 amp and "may" have the 45 & 65 amp WFCOs ("hot item -- quantities limited").

Obviously another wfco would fit right in with a 30 minute install time.
"Four wires" "8 screws"

Correct assumption about installing a pd unit as there needs to be some case modifications although minor the op's dh may not be capable of such mods on the road.

Barry if you would check the case size between at pd 9270 and a 9255 in reference to the case size on a wfco 50-55.

I know a pd9270 is wider but is a pd 9250 or 9255 closer to the wfco?

I'm busy operating right now or I'd look.

Edit:
When I mean case size I mean actual converter itself not the whole distribution center.

if you just installed a new battery, you may have either wired it backwards or accidently did for a second, which will set off the 12v resettable breaker/fuse that's located along the Trailer's A-frame, between the battery and the front of the trailer.

should look like this:

reset it by pushing the black button.

Dan, things were working just fine for a while. It really sounds like the battery just discharged slowly.

WFCO: 5.88w x 3.94h x 8.76d
PD9270: 3.6 x 8 x 9
PD9245: 4.5 x 8.25 x 7.25

I think I must be missing something.

I think Progressive Dynamics has a direct conversion kit for the WFCO 55W converter. Part #PD4655V. But you have to modify it - you don't need their case.

Here is a video..

You switched the last two numbers.
Should be 9" wide and 7.25 wide and thats the difference between wfco and pd.

The 4655 doesn't have charge wizard .

Edit: they now DO have charge wizard for the replacement.

I like the 9200 series better.

Thank you all so very much for your help!!! <3

I called 5 Star Mobile RV Repair. Ricky is coming out within the hour. I explained everything over the phone, he agrees it is the converter. I'll let you know how it goes when he's gone!
