WFCO 8935MBA Failure

I have a 2013 TE-829RLQS Palomino. The original WFCO 8935 converter gave out after 13 months (Would not go out of Float Mode). The dealer replaced it with a new one (same model) it lasted a total of 2 days and has no output (o volts). Have others had similar failures of the WFCO 8935MBA and if so have they replaced it with a different manufacturers product?

There are LOTS of threads on here regarding failed WFCO units in general. Most have replaced with Progressive Dynamics converters.

My first thought would be the dealer made a mistake while installing the replacement

OR possibly the original was not bad and the problem was misdiagnosed causing the second problem.

TWO is highly suspicious.

Remember most RV dealerships offer no training or qualification certification to their maintenance personnel who "sort of learn on the job."

Thanks for the input. I think I'll upgrade to a more durable product and save some headaches in the long run.
