PD9260 or 9160 for '76 Argosy

Any suggestions? Will either one work on my 1976 Argosy? I currently have a functioning Univolt, but want to shed some weight and free up some space. Please help.

Either one will do fine. The 9160 is older, but still a good unit as long as it has the charge wizard with it. Also, a 9145 or a 9245 will be fine. The last two num bers are the amp output/charge capacity. 45 amps is fine.

Is; more is better with dc amperage? I'm not at all familiar with dc current and the 60 amps seemed reasonable?

Only up to a point is more better. Your batteries will not take a much faster charge than the 45 amp models will give and I doubt that your 12 volt load is huge either. The original buzz box is 50 amps as I recall. You will not hurt anything with a larger unit, but it will cost you more money and probably not give you any better results.

Thanks Idroba,
I found a new (never used) 60amp with the charge wizard for $80. I don't think I can pass on it. Even though the old univolt is working great, eventually it will give up the ghost. I figgure since everything is out, I've put in new water lines, fittings, fixtures, fridge, sewer lines and valves, furnace, shurflow pump and AC unit...I may as well not skimp and get er done? Oh hell, I blew past the budget months ago, what's another $80 bucks? Hahaha
