I need advice

Ok. My "new" 1974 airstream needs a new distribution panel. I baught a progressive dynamics 9260 converter. Should I build a new panel (which I'm not sure how to do exactly) or should I buy one?? If I buy one, where and what do I need? I seem to find 30 or 50 amp panels for sale but my converter is 60 amps. Do I need a 60 amp distribution panel? Also, I am parked permanently with sewer so I don't have a black tank or grey tank and I will very seldom use the main tank so I decided to ditch the control panel. Will this cause me problems? I took out the furnace also. I put electrical tape over the wires that went to it and was just going to shove the wires in to the wall as opposed to acualy removing the wires frome the whole wiring system. Does having open wires effect the rest of the electrical system. I know this is alot of questions but I really need help here. Thanks ahead of time!

If you can return it, exchange it for a power center, it will do it all!

Rama,

You are looking at two different things. The 60 amp converter is for the 12VDC system, so it put out 60 amps of direct current at 13.6 volts.

The 30 and 50 amp panels are for 120VAC current, the same as in your house.

If this causes you to slap your head and say "doh", then we can continue to the next question. On the other hand, if this sounds like Latin to you, I would advise you to consult a RV tech/electrician.

Ok, maybe it isn't a distribution panel I need, but rather a fuse panel. Sound better?
