Converter size revisited

I am looking to replace my old 50 amp Charger/converter with a suitable Intelli Charger, probably the 60 amp version.
For the obvious reason I want to keep the Wattage as low as possible with enough amp to do the job. What size did you replace yours with and how is it working out. This is on a 1987 345
Thanks in advance

Hi Peter.

Long time no hear.

Your choice of amp rating is fine.

Replacing a Univolt with one that has the same or slightly higher amp rating is OK.

Down grading is a no no, except when replacing the old 70 to 75 amp Univolt. That one was a definite over kill.

Andy

Hi Andy, Thank you for the reply! Yes, it has been a long time, now we all are 10 years wiser ...or are we? I sold my trusted 28' 79, so i could get me something smaller and easier to work on. Ended up with a 1987 345
Got the alu fever and enjoying every minute of it .

Hi Peter.

Yeah, I know most things in Texas are smaller.

Glad your back in the groove.

Hope you don't need any more side sheets.
