With no AC power, mine was flashing. Flash rate may depend on state of charge. I don't remember what mine was doing, but it may have been flashing at a rate other than those defined in the manual.

I had purchased and installed a PD4655 for our Bambi several years ago. it worked great with the two-6 volt Lifeline batteries. we could go almost 5-days boon docking, using the furnace in the morning, taking showers, LED reading lights at night, listening to Sirius satellite radio. I had purchased the PD and batteries from Randy at Best converter. The cooling fan hardly ever runs. Maybe just in boost mode after usage with the volts down to 12.06 of so.
we just recently purchased a 2015 23FB, and I wanted to replicate the Bambi system, so I purchased a PD4655, again from Best, and installed it. As soon as I connected it, the cooling fan came on and has run continuously as long as we are plugged it. Thinking the Interstates were shot from sitting on the dealers lot, I installed my Lifelines from the Bambi, which I know are good, and the fan continues to run. Called the PD tech, and they said it was a defective unit, and to return to the retailer for an exchange. Waiting on shipping and return instructions from Best. They gave me the address but no info on the shipping expense. I certainly hope that they would not expect me to pay to return a defective unit.

Thanks Rrroberts40 for posting these instructions.

The install in my 23D went really smooth. Disconnected 4 wires, connected 4 new wires and a new ground. Done. Working as advertised.

I was able to sell the Parallax 7355 on flea bay for what I paid for the PD4655. Weird.

Update;
Well, Best never responded to the question regarding shipping charges, so I wound up paying shipping to return a defective unit to them. I then ordered a new PD4655 through Amazon which was delivered and is working great. At least with Amazon, you know that you can return/exchange defective merchandise at no additional expense. The cost was a little less than from Best.

Very disappointed in the lack of follow-through and a response.

Best converter

Wow that really surprises me. I had an issue where they shipped the wrong product. In with the correct one was the return p/u label. Go figure. I dealt with Cherie. Think I'm spelling that right. Good luck.

This weekend I replaced my Paralax 7355 with a PD 4655. Best part of the job was the included instructions. Written by someone for whom English is their first language. Maybe the "Made in USA" label had something to do with it. Project took longer than I expected, maybe a hour and half, but didn't expect all the switching of wires. After powering it up a red LED lit up under one of the 15 amp 12 volt fuses. I accidentally place a burned out fuse in that spot. What a great feature! Enough of my babble.

Here's my question to all experts. As I'm copying the Airstream fuse position label information onto the new sticker to overlay the old 7300 sticker, Fuse #1 says "15A Purple, RS Comp W/R Bed, Shower, Sewer LT AC Control".

15 Amp is the fuse, Purple is the wire color... What the heck is "RS Comp" or "W/R"? I understand the rest are lights and probably the thermostat.

From the hip RS refers to left or Road Side of the trailer. CS refers to the right or Curb Side of the trailer. WR refers to the WardRobe closet.

Anyone that has installed a PD4655 in their rig does it run completely silent or is there a slight electric noise (similar to an old hard drive head moving across the platter?)

I've installed a replacement (for the original PD4655) and it has the same noise. I just wonder if I'm expecting it to be too silent?

Also replaced Paralax 7355 with PD 4655 converter

Rich,

Have a 2013 25' Flying Cloud and did not know what to do with the original
black wire with the pigtail that went to the old Paralax 7355 lower right slot
connection. So like you, I taped the end of the pigtail and tie-wrapped it and took the new black wire from the PD 4655 converter and inserted it in with the two remaining wires from the yellow twist cap into a larger red twist cap making a total of three wires. My rational for not tying the black pigtail into the red twist cap making a total of four wires was that it already contained a black wire from AC breaker 3. AC breaker 3 I have has two black wires off of it by the manufacturer, one being the black original pigtail wire that I taped the end of.

Question: Does having the original black pigtail wire taped and not used affect anything in your Airstream? I am planning to replace my two "fired" Interstate SRM-24 lead acid batteries with two Interstate DCM0075 AGM batteries.

Thank you,
Gary
