Powermax Boondocker 60 converter?

1992 Excella 25'

I'm replacing the old buzzing converter. I'll probably go with the Powermax Boondocker 60-amp. Randy at bestconverters.com recommends it to replace my 50-amp original Magnetek. Anyone using this Powermax? Quiet?

Thanks,
Doug

We have had the Boondocker 60 for a year. We traveled about 10,000 miles in the last year, many hours of service with the Boondocker 60. I bought it at Randy's recommendation. Randy gave it a strong favorable recommendation. I have been happy with it. I also installed two of his Group 27 AGM batteries at the same time.

If I replaced the univolt in my 87 Sovereign with one of these, would I stay with 30 amp shore power cord, or would I want to go to a 50a? Any changes needed to breaker box, etc.? (As you might guess, no electrical expert here ...)

No. The 50 amp/60 amp for the converter refers to the 12 volt output at maximum. The input side of the converter (110 volts) is at most 60*12/120=6 amps (using the equation amps*volts=watts, twice), which should be well within what the current wiring in your trailer can handle.
