New Converter Better Than Expected

I knew that I needed to replace my old converter, but since it was still working, I assumed I had time or wouldn't see much of a difference with the new one. I was wrong. I thought converters either worked or didn't. Apparently they can gradually lose effeciency. We were having problems with our refridgerator, the batteries, the jack. I assumed all the problems were unrelated. We installed an inteli-power 9260 and everything's working better.

Thanks to everyone who offered advice.

Yeah, it's amazing how much difference it makes, isn't it? In the B190, I was always having problems with the florescent light flickering...not after the new converter, though! Everything worked better, the water heater started better, it was like a whole new camper.

The one in the trailer wasn't as bad off, so the difference with a new converter wasn't as great, but even still there are improvements; for example, the lights are brighter and much less likely to dim when another one is turned on.
