Well I received my PM4B-60 PowerMax from Randy (in two days instead of three) and installed it no problems. Randy answered a couple questions I had right away. I also installed my new group 31 Duracell batteries. Verified with my DC clamp on ammeter that the initial charge (about 14 A) tapered down after less than an hour. I also replaced my old tongue jack that was slowly dying - although the new converter and batteries did breathe some new life into it. The PM4B-60 PowerMax is silent and cool. The fan never did kick on so I got bored and reinstalled the gaucho coucho and called it a day.

Next electrical upgrade will be LED lights - I found my old automotive style bulbs are drawing 1.5 A each!

Thanks John. FYI the part numbers on the Boondockers have been changed to make it easier to understand the models. For example the PM4B-60 is now simply BD 1260 (12 volt, 60 amps) etc. Many have inquired so thought I would clarify here. There might be a few of the old part numbers floating around but there is no difference.
