That would take hours!
I have an old Elixir-45. The lower converter section is not a "slideout" like the WFCO unit, but still does not seem difficult to remove. But I don't know if the PowerMax replacement convertor will fit in my lower housing or not. Randy from BestConverter is recommending I install the Boondocker-60 "Powercenter", which includes the lower Powermax converter, and the upper distribution center, all in a new (plastic) housing. A direct replacement for the entire ELX-45.
I have my ELX-45 on my bench now, and am trying to convince myself that this is the way to go ($215) versus trying to pull the converter section only, and replacing with the Powermax convertor only (~$150). I've already removed all the wiring (and properly labeled each). So I suppose I should just replace the whole thing.
On a good note, my battery wiring is nice 6-ga. I was concerned about how much a very low battery could pull from a 60Amp unit. But from what little I've researched, I think the 6-gage covers it, right?
I think my only real question is whether my DC fuse board is compatible. I have seen PD "upgrade" kits that typically include a new DC fuse board.
