Progressive Dynamics converter

Can someone please advise me on if the PD 60 Amp power converter will be suitable for a 1972 23' AS Land Yacht??? I will only be running a small fridge, 3 outlets, and maybe a total of 5 LED lights.

For about $20 less money, the PD 9245C (45 amp) would handle your load. Too big of a unit for the existing battery wire sizes could cause an electrical issue.

Yes, a 9245 will be all you need and there is really no reason to go to a larger one.

Unless you are going to run your refrigerator with 12VDC when plugged into shore power, it is not a factor. If the three outlets are 115VAC outlets, they also present no load to the converter. If the three outlets are 12VDC (I don't think that is what you are talking about), the answer depends on what is plugged into them. LED lights draw very little power.

However you may want a little or a lot of reserve to add things later.

Rather than depend on answers you get here from sources whose level of knowledge and experience can vary greatly, I suggest you contact someone whose business is resolving questions like yours. Here is a business I have purchased at least 3 converters from with very good service.
