I need to upgrade my univolt

Hi there I'm looking for help with what I need to upgrade my electrical system. I am looking at the Boondocker power max 4 stage 60 amp charger/ converter. My question is. Is this the right choice or is this too small or too large for me. I have a 1972 overlander. Thanks

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard....

Give Randy a call, he won't steer you rong.

IMHO...60a is a bit over the top.

When I corresponded with Randy he told me either a the 45 amp (less than the original 55 amp converter) or a 60 amp would work. But, if I wanted to charge faster when using the generator, he said the 60 amp would be the better choice. I chose the 60 amp Boondocker. I've been happy with it for the 2 years since I installed it. I think I've only added water to the battery one time since the install.
