Replace power converter

I have an old BW Manufacturing power converter.
Series 32, Model 3230ul that has stopped working. Can anyone recommend a replacement? Thanks in advance.

I have installed Progressive dynamics PD9245 in both of my trailers, as well as several for friends. They are easy to change out, reliable, and have a good warranty. I have had good luck with all that I have installed. great support from the company. JMHO

My existing be converted charger has 5 or 6 fused circuits for 12 volt distribution thru the airstream. From the pictures and description the Progressive doesn't seem to have them. What do I do?

You could add a fuse panel to serve those circuits if there's a location nearby to mount it. Many different ones available online, A simple search for "12v fuse panel" on Amazon will get you way too many choices.

What model is the BW converter? There should be a seperate 12 volt distribution panel in the trailer, fed by the converter. Do you have the owners manual?

Are the fused circuits integral to the old converter or is it a panel that can be removed and used with a new converter?-- Frank
