I installed an Inteli-power in my 74 Tradewind. The install went easy and I didn't need to buy anything else. It is quiet and easy on the battery. Buy the charge wizard with it. I got mine from They were helpful with install questions. Good Luck.

My trailer had the same problem. On my trailer, the fuse holder for the GND fuse was loose and was not making connection. The fuse was perfectly ok. To make sure this is the problem, measure the voltage at the following points. (*note place the ground wire of your meter on the ground fuse for all of the measurements)

1. ground fuse
2. ground block (block of copper that all of your ground wires connect to)
3. power plane (common side for all of your fuses)
4. power fuse

#1 should be 0. #2 should be real close to 0 (if not, you have my same problem. #3 should be between 12-14v. #4 should be the same as #3 (if not, you have my same problem but on the power side). The easiest way to fix this is to replace the fuse panel.

The old original converters were and are great if properly controlled and used wisely. The converters will pump out lots of amperage. Regulating all thta power is required for long battery life. It is a good idea to have and learn to use a multimeter. To use a converter carefully, there should be a switch to control the shore ac power to the converter. When ya watch tv or go to sleep, the hummmmm can be turned off. The converter will boil out all the water in any battery. The converter should be controlled with a time clock. When a trailer is in storage, the clock can allow the battery to be charged thwice a day for about an hour. A fully charge battery with indicate 12.6 volts on a digital multimeter. A battery that indicates 12.0 volts is discharged 75%.... Frank
