Converter

I am restoring a '76 31' Sovereign from the ground up. I have taken everything out from the inside and am putting in everything new - including refrig, microwave/convetion oven, air conditioner, electric vents, furnace, etc.

My question is what size & type of converter should I put in?

Thanks, Eric

You can use Airstreams current model, that they have used for several years, rated at 55 amps.

Take a look at Progressive Dynamics 45 or 60 watt Converter. Vintage Trailer Supply sells a bunch to Airstream restorers.

40 amp was in it new back in 76 and we use more power today. I would go with a 60 amp. Also, the price from a 45 to a 60 amp is not all that much. If it cost a nickel to go first class, go first class!

Progressive Dynamics does warrant direct. Ones does not plan to have problems, however it is always easy with them(PD), if you do

Iota is another brand that is becoming popular. I got one last fall, I think it's a 45A, that I will be installing this spring.
