Thanks,
I believe that the upgrade converter for modern "power center" installations is this one from BestConverter.

I recommend you call BestConverter and discuss it with them to make sure before you go throwing money around, I haven't personally dealt with this, my converters are free-standing deck mount models.

+1 on what DKB said. Talk to Randy at Best Converters.

Ultra III

I just installed the Ultra III upgrade from BestConverter for peace of mind. It is a simple install but it does take longer than they suggest as getting everything hooked up while down on the floor is a bit of a physical challenge. Nevertheless, no modifications are required so it is a well thought out upgrade.

Is your convertor mounted under the breaker panel in the open or enclosed?

Thanks

The fuse board and the lower portion of the converter are replaced, then the existing front panel is reattached. so it looks just like what was there, but the guts are new.

You can also put a 45 or 60 amp PD92xx converter in where the old "guts" used to be - this is what I did on my B190, and it worked perfectly. There are lots of options; as you said BestConveter.com will help figure it out.
