Power Converter 2007 Lexington Motorhome by Forest River

Interior lights are dimming and brightening on 2007 Lexington Motorhome when plugged into shore power. Batteries are new and I know I need to replace the power converter. Any hints which model and amperage would be the original factory unit?

Moved thread from the General Tech and Repair section to the Lexington sub-forum, in the Motorhome section since the OP is asking for model-specific information.

When you open the door to look at breakers and fuses there should be a service plate with the model #. You won't need to replace the whole thing, just the power supply part. Which on my wfco 8955 was a 15min job. If you think you might go lifepo4 batteries in the future get the one with the selector switch for battery type.

WFCO 9855 was the replacement converter I used in my 2007 Lexington 235s.

Don't buy the whole converter assembly. You just need the main board. The part number is WF8955 MBA (Main Board Assembly). It really is a 15 minute job.

The b that supports an upgrade to Lithium batteries if you think you might upgrade. (It comes with a replacement fuse board. I wouldn't spend my time installing the new fuse board.)
