Converter/charger replacement advice

So the little fiasco with hooking up the TT to a 220 volt service, which was clearly marked 120 volt, has fried the converter/charger. One of the larger capacitors literally blew it's top out. A real electronics guy frined of mine looked at it and highly recommended replacing it rather than try to repair it as there may be hidden damage(s). True. I'm asking those who may have experienced replacing the converter/charger what unit to purchase to replace the Elixir ELX45 unit that was fried. Thanks, David

I got mine from 9800 Series

Took out 4 small screws, unpluged the converter, detached the +/- wires, and then reversed the process to install, took about 15 minutes.

Dealer wanted more $$$ than this company and another $160 to install.

like jaxfl i also just replaced just the converter not the whole power center ! very simple .
altho my old converter was a 55 amp i replaced it with a 70 amp and had to modify the case a little bit but it fit great and took less than an hour .
