PD4655 Converter

I'd be interested to know about that Tater. Even if we run out from one warehouse we can ship them from another. Usually NO delay and I'm checking on that now. I can't see your order since I'm sure you didn't order it under the name Tater lol

I see Homosassa on your profile. I remember that. No reason it won't ship immediately.

PD4655 Converter

Just got thru reading this post and was wondering if the PD4655 will be ok for a 71 Sovereign 31' with 30amp service plug (Furrion) that is totally stripped and going back with all new electrical, need all the help I can get. Need to get one ordered Thanks Jim

Short answer is no because the 4655 is an upgrade kit for an existing Parallax 7355 and does not contain the AC breaker panel and DC fuse board. You would need a full power center or a distribution panel and a separate deck mount converter.

PD4655 Converter

Can you recommend one then if it doesn't go against Forum rules, I want to be sure when I buy one that it is what I need.

Ok got it - looks like I'll keep my same fuse panel and replace only the converter

I'm off to look at it a bit later tonight

I just started replacing my 7355 with the PD 4655. While removing the old converter, I was removing the hot wire from the breaker. The wire was spliced with a short wire going to the wire nut. I was planning on just splicing my new converter wire with the short wire going to the wire nut and replacing the metal splicing gizmo in the picture below. My issue is, I cannot find where to get this metal gizmo. What are others doing who have come across this?

Randy, my Boondocker is open like Pharm's. The existing Parallax is enclosed in a metal case. Are you saying just put the Boondocker in and leave it open on top? Any chance of debris falling from the couch into the converter. I'm antsy about leaving it open since the original is enclosed. For some reason I can't post the image as it keeps asking for a URL of the image on the insert image button. Thanks.

Jim

If Randy's reply does not rid said antsy feelings - then request the closed unit

For me actually I think it will be much easier to keep it clean of dust and dirt over time

I imagine the closed unit will still gather some dust inside - esp considering the fan blowing in?

With it open blowing it out will be easy and require no removal of anything - what does it take to remove the closed unit to use canned air - I plan on looking at my innards of my stock converter to see how much dust accumulated

Plus it may stay a tad cooler open?

Didn't know there was a closed unit option. That would be more in order to directly replace what is there. Will see what Randy says. Being under the couch and pulling it out to make a bed could be a problem if there's anything on the couch. Of course the rest of the box is open.

Cut it and use a wire nut on the wire to power the converter.
I will post a photo when the board clears up. It has a gremlin at the moment and I cannot post a photo.

You could build a cover if you're concerned about debris and exchanging for a deck mount is perfectly fine too. I can see advantages of each but I'll leave it up to you.
