RV power converter

So I have looked just about everywhere I can for my 2014 Sierra select 30IOK's power converter so I can attempt to replace it myself. Any suggestions? Places I might have over looked? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

It is usually part of your power distribution center. (breakers and fuses)
You typically have to remove to install the converter portion.

Thanks Kenny, I tried to look up his model but couldn't find anything on the converter.

Thanks Kenny, can you be a little more specific? As far as "Basement" and "backwall"

I apologize but I'm still learning this RV stuff and have been having trouble finding specific make/model info on my trailer.

If it's not in the basement as Kenny described, you may can check to see if it's on the bottom or side of your RV's electrical distribution panel as 5picker pointed out.

If you see air louvers on the side or bottom cover of the distribution panel cover, this can be an indication the converter is there. You will have to remove the cover as shown in this pic (converter on bottom)

Seems we should start a "seek and ye shall find" thread where everyone can post where the converter, BCC, water pump and icemaker shutoff valves are their specific model, pictures accepted. I am sure there are more...oh yes, the fuse for any convenience cigar lighter outlets, the park cable entrance and satellite if any. Maybe we should have a form.

This always happens before the season starts.

That would be very useful and I could add all my findings to minimize the amount of times questions like mine are asked.
