Thanks wmtire for changing. BTW mystery solved. Fan running in bathroom on low and made a slight humming noise and made it difficult to track and made me think converter . Winterized the camper today and while in bathroom to turn had to remove the pannel from under sink and happen to look up and there it was the fan just a turning slow and humming. Thanks for all those folks that gave me the idea where to find the converter which btw is behind breaker panel as mentioned. Later RJD

Same here and never had issues. I have checked my two batteries regularly and are always fully charged. It's like anything one buys somebody is always going to get a bad one or have an issues. Sometimes better is not always best also. Later RJD

Not defending or supporting WFCO, but I highly suspect the wiring size did NOT come from them, but from Forest River. Pics on the web don't show 32 ft of wire:

If we're going to bad-mouth them, let's be accurate.

I also have had NO issues with the WFCO in my TT. After a year of ownership, and hearing allot of horror stories I purchased a Progressive Dynamics brand unit. That was four years ago, and that new unit is still in its box...LOL ! ......and ready to be used if ever needed!

I do check my battery regularly and all is good!

I've had two WFCO's...no issues. I have a noisy PD converter in new TH...I'm about to change it out for loud irritating hum.

How is it you think I meant WFCO was responsible for the 32 feet of wire?? When I said "manufacturers" did you think I meant WFCO? Oh wait, I highly suspect you did.

You're right. My mistake.

But the wiring has little to do with the quality of the WFCO, per se, I suspect; but maybe how well it charges the battery.
