Hi is the original converter in the coach? If so please give me the model number, and I can recommend the new replacement, thanks

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No it is not that that why I requested help
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 6 months ago.

thanks, ***** ***** the 70's they did not connect the converter in combination with battery charging, and interior coach function, lights pump ect. So do you see a switch that says Battery, and switches to converter? We will need to upgrade the system. Is there an interior fuse panel for the lights, furnace , pump ect?

It had no information on convertor
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
What other photos you need. I'm restoring it. it do know it requires three battery and enternal water pump ac and generator. it is approximately 1hr and have from here. will be going back next week.
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 6 months ago.

the problem is that unit is no longer available, and you will need to change a few things here is an article from the converter sales distribuor, the converter I linked you to will work, you will need to change the wiring to adapt to it, the other option is a 'stand alone' unit which the converter feeds a fuse panel seperate from the unit, I think with your configuration, the one on the link is more appropriate check out this information. It applies to your situation . clickhere
