Looking for help with Univolt converter replacement

I'm replacing my current electrical setup. I think I know what I need, but want to check with the experts. 😀My AS TW '75 has a 40amp converter but I'm pretty sure it is not original. I have this blue plate that seems to indicate a 45 amp was original. Does this seem right? I was planning to go with the PD9245 converter/charger w charge wizard. Also the 12v fuse box seems original and I'm thinking I should replace with the blade type? Also what is the little breaker w the glass fuse(bottom right of photo)? Do I need it? What is its modern equivalent? I've included some photos. Thanks! Once I get this working I need to figure out why the 12v lines in the old AC area appear to be dead...

The 9245 will work fine. A new blade type fuse block is recommended.
Some trailers had a fuse in the negative lead from the battery. If you decide to keep that protection then upgrade the fuse and holder.

I got my converter (Inteli-Power 9245 Converter/Charger 45 Amp w/ Charge Wizard/Pendant (S018-559008)) from AdventureRV.net. I knew what I wanted. But they may be able to help you if you contact them. I did watch a few videos to try to figure out what I needed, and the help here of course.

If you haven't done the fuse panel yet, here's a couple posts I helped some others figure out their mess and replace fuse panel:

In my rebuild I changed the location and fuse panels along with the Converter. Good bye UniVolt hello InteliPower along with a Lifeline AGM Battery.

I also added 4 maxi fuses. One for the converter one for the factory trailer feed , one for the new fuse panel above them and one to feed the other fuse panel on the new breaker box.

By the time I was finished I changed the one above the maxi fuses to a 8 position fuse holder note the circuit breakers in it , they replaced the original glass type circuit breakers.
