Just switched out my converter for an Intelli-power converrter with charge wizard. OHHHHHHHHHHHHH is that the sound of a pin dropping that I hear? Couldn't believe how heavy the orginal was compared to my new unit.
When I initially started the ongoing deconstruction there was a massive box that was insulated around the converter - I assume to help contain any fire that should break out. The Intellipower unit has a fan and is not much different than my computer power supply - which incidentally does not need a fire blanket around it.
This leads to my question which is:
1. Does this unit need to be contained like the other as I can't see a reason to do that?
2. Under the old unit there is a hole in the floor with a corresponding hole in the belly skin. Can I now close this in as again I assume that the hole was for cooling the massive mundo-jovial converter that originally came with the Overlander without any fan?
Change your converter would be my suggestion!
