What type of converter is there in a 2013 -- 25' international? Single-stage or 3-stage?
If single stage; how easy is it to upgrade?

All 2012 Airstreams and so far all 2013 have single stage converters which for the price is unacceptable. Best converters.com is a good source for those doing the install themselves. I'm contemplating doing the same thing but can't comment on the install at this time. Good luck.

I just cannot figure out where the AS company has their head. Well I guess if I think about it I could probably come up with at least 1 place. Anyhow, for the prices they are getting for these things I think they should be using the newer and better technology available. The cost differential just cannot be that great. Just recently I elected to replace the perfectly good parallax single stage charger that had come with the, new to us, '01 Airstream we have. I got a new 4 stage charger from Best convertors. I did this a few years ago with the older trailer we had also. You could put the old one up for sale or offer it " free to a good home" here on the forum. That's what I did. So I'm hoping that a fellow forum member is getting good service for it.

Do it, you won't be sorry. It's an easy DIY job.

You could also keep it for a bench tool, a reliable 12-volt power supply. That's what some do.
