Joe,

In case you did not see my response to your question posed in your thread, "Factory Solar Questions...", I provided a link as to which converters are optimized to charge AGM batteries (especially LifeLine).

Bill

It would seem like something similar could be done to mount the PD9260 in the space formerly occupied by the 5355 converter section. Have you heard of anyone successfully doing that?
How I mounted my new converter in the space formerly occupied by the OEM converter section:

Hmm...

Sent from my iPad using Airstream Forums
"The power converter built into your Airstream isnít optimized for charging AGM batteries. Often it will undercharge them, particularly in cold weather."

This and additional information is in Outside Interests Product Review: "Secrets of Power: The Xantrex Truecharge2"

We switched to the Magnum MS-2812 in the Classic to handle the 600 amp hour lithium battery under the sofa. We currently have 800 watts of solar on the roof and may add another panel or two iff there is space.

In the 23D we switched to the hybrid Magnum MSH-3012 that can draw additional starting power from the 300 amp-hour lithium battery to help the 2,000 watt Honda generator start and run the air conditioner.

Lots of options out there.

I renently replaced my Parallax with a Boondocker. It was a neat and easy install. See my post in the Electrics/Inverters, converters forum. Complete with pictures.
