I would go with 60 or 70 amp. 60 with 1 battery and 70 if you have two. I have seen people go with 70 for a single battery replacement. If you are plugged in all the time 60 for sure. If your going to be needing alot of charging such as boondocking I would then go for 70 amp. Much faster charge from 55 to 70 amp...

You cannot go wrong with the 60 either, that is what I've used in the past.

That was a main reason at one time. But now FR is slowly switching over to a progressive model. They have been testing them on certain units. I'm sure the cost is minimal to them between the two. They are going to also be changing over to jack antennas on all units also, they are still testing them. I have to give them credit atleast they are tring....
