Talking Atwood Converters to replace Univolt?????

pulled a univolt out of my 75 tradewind this afternoon was getting a .04 on the voltmeter....

a local dealer on ebay has Atwood converters for sale....a 55 amp for 145.00

just wondering if you guys have had any experience with these converters...atwood makes just about everything for the coaches yet not much on the forums about Atwood converters....also i will be trying to use 2 12v batteries

Iota converters cost the same or are cheaper and they have 3-stage charging. This does not, at least according to that auction info. WFCO's do too and cost only a little bit more. The Iota's have really cool shiny cooling fins, too. Go to for an Iota and for a WFCO.

Have not seen any Atwood converters out there yet. Lots of Parralax, WFCO, Iota and Intellipower. Whatever you get, make sure that it at least 55 amps for a dual battery set-up and 3 stage 'smart charging' is a must!!!
