What is a good converter?

Is Parallax a good name? Or Intelli-Power, or Atwood? Just wondering what you guys would suggest?

I'll spare you the details and get to the shameless plug. We move thousands of them and sell what we have the least problems with. Parallax is probably the best for reliability and quality but not near as popular as the three stage units from WFCO or Progressive Dynamics lately which are just as good, again based on the numbers I see from my company and my opinion. We don't carry the Atwood, Iota, and even the 9200 series Intli-Power yet because there are too many refurbished units out there. We very will might in the near future but today we don't.

Hi Rod and welcome to the Forum. I have replaced a bunch of converters and from my point of view, the WFCO is the unit that I have replaced the LEAST! In fact, I just swapped out the Parrallax unit that came stock from A/S in my new 19CCD for a WFCO, primarily for the 3 stage charging. Nice unit, very compact and quiet too.

Just my $.02 on the subject!
