New Power Converter Location??

We are replacing the power converter that was precariously resting on top of the battery in the rear compartment in our '66 Tradewind. Where is the best location for the new one?

If you would update your profile to include your year and model of trayla, we can know which trailer you have.

Then it'll be much easier to make a suggestion.

In the meanwhile, I would suggest having a look in the Owners Manual to see where it started off in your trailer. Anywhere else will require more work since you will have to either extend or replace the existing wires...

I have a 66 TW. My old univolt was located just behind the water heater. This is where I located the new 45 amp converter. It worked well to mount it here as it is much smaller than the original univolt and the bathroom shelf above this area is removable. Send me your email address and I will send you some pictures of my converter (before and after).

Okay, sorry, I've updated my profile. I didn't have a trayla when I became a member.

Wow, what a difference! I love those old VW busses, real character! No good as a tow vehicle, but real stamina if they're looked after.

But if'n yer a hippie chick, why doesn't it have all kinds of peace symbols and paisley designs onnit!?

Hope you found out exactly how your converter was fixed in there...
