converter install

I've got a 2018 Flying Cloud 27 with a pair of lead-acid batteries. I'm replacing them with Lithium (LiFePo4) batteries. The present converter is a WFCO WF-8955 which won't work with lithium. So I thought I'd replace it with a 'drop in' converter of the same dimensions and amperage but that will work with lithium.

I'd like to replace it with a WF 8955 AD-MBA. Do I just push the thing in, screw it down, attach the DC wires, attach the Breaker side AC wires, all grounds and neutrals, and be done with it?

Or am I supposed to put the MBA unit inside the metal case from the original unit?

WFCO the manufacturer intends for you to install the MBA (main board assembly) inside your existing case primarily to reduce the chance of accidental exposure, shock, shorting, fire etc. They have an instruction manual on their website with installation instructions that describes placing the assembly into the appropriate case.

So you remove the original mba from its aluminum case, and the new MBA should fit into the original case because like the original MBA it's an 8900 series?

Dimensionally it seems to fit. I can't say if the hardware and mounts line up but the manual seems to suggest that. WFCO has tech support line which should be able to confirm an easy or difficult swap.
